About Me

Dave B. discovered the guitar at age 14 and he has been sharing his knowledge for as long as he has been learning. In 18 years of playing, he has received instruction from many talented teachers, played in many bands, and has performed at many great venues and music festivals across the Northeast. He graduated Suma Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in 2007 with a degree in Songwriting and Music Education.

Dave offers a well-rounded curriculum to his students, developed from years of experience as a student, performer, and as a music educator. In addition to his core strengths as a guitarist and general music teacher, Dave also has a basic knowledge and understanding of bass and voice theories. Students of all ages will enjoy his genuine enthusiasm and positive attitude and will benefit from his broad knowledge base. Dave believes that music is a life long gift and he strives to lead his students to that discovery themselves.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect a fun and organized experience during lesson time. A typical lesson would contain both physical and intellectual elements. Time is equally spent reinforcing handling technique, building efficient picking habits and ensuring proper fretting of the instrument as is spent learning to read, write, and perform music in many styles. Dave has a library of texts for students of all levels, all of which he has used for his own education.

After 3 or 6 months, a student with little or no experience will have learned to read, write, and perform songs with simple chords and melodies. They will have learned how to hold, pick, and fret the instrument. Students interested in singing will be able to read and sing simple melodies while playing their instrument. Students will also enjoy a basic understanding of how notes construct chords and how families of chords are used to create songs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide texts, music stands, metronomes and tuners for lessons. Students are responsible for their instruments, notebooks, and writing implements and are suggested to buy texts, music stands, metronomes, and tuners.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach a broad variety of guitar performance styles: rock, folk, jazz, classical, country, bluegrass. I specialize in melodic improvisation in all styles. I enjoy William Leavitt's guitar method books and Berklee's theory volumes, but I have read and utilized many texts by other authors.

About Me

I have been blessed to make my living in the arts for many years. As a professional actress, musical director, producer and vocalist, I have seen how the Broadway and concert community work first-hand. I have been teaching voice and piano privately in NYC for over 20 years, with a number of clients currently on Broadway and in National tours (Jersey Boys, Lion King, Spamalot, etc.). I’ve toured as a pop recording artist and as a classical concert soloist throughout Europe, I’ve coached students from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and Yale’s Summer Program, taught Singing for Musical Theatre at NYC’s Circle in the Square, and directed many high level summer programs for students age 6-18 and beyond.

I know well how the music business works and what students should learn to thrive and survive within it. I work regularly in a number of recording studios with many clients therein as well, and truly enjoy watching the progress and musical development of those I teach. And on weekends in New England I can be found either singing jazz or with my husband’s friends who thrive in R&B and the Blues.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love working with all ages, realizing it is all a journey.

Development of a strong technique is crucial to any musical field. Without it you will only grow so far. Hence, I typically start lessons with a short warm-up, scales, and technique session followed by work on musical material. Having worked with hundreds of students over the years, I specialize in personal vocal and instrumental growth, catering each lesson to that specific student’s needs.

If you have incurred bad singing habits which may injure your vocal mechanism, I also specialize in and have worked with a number of personal clients who require vocal therapy and restructuring.

If you practice and are dedicated you will grow at a fast pace and develop a healthy technique.
