But even if you don't want to play professionally, maybe you just want to learn a few chords, licks, songs, for yourself, or to impress friends. That's okay too!

I welcome every level and style. I always learn something from my students.

About Me

My name is Dustin B.

I've been playing and teaching music for the majority of my life, and I love it :) In fact, I cannot imagine what life would be like without music.

I received my first instrument (a guitar) as a Christmas present when I was only nine years old. My life was forever changed that day, and I can still remember the first couple of guitar lessons that my dad gave me over the weeks that followed.

After thousands of hours of playing instruments, years of private lessons, and a professional music education from Pacific Lutheran University, I found that sharing the gift of music with others was my greatest talent.

I spend most of my days composing, recording, producing and teaching music (in the greater Seattle area), with much of the work performed in my Tacoma-area studio.

In 2011, my band (The BGP) had some global exposure from our appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent. This has led to some really neat opportunities for publishing our music and networking on a national level. The BGP travels on a few small tours around the nation each year. The majority of our performances consist of college showcases and club shows.

As much as I love performing music, I have to admit that I enjoy teaching music a little bit more! It's those "Ah hah" moments that we all have on our musical journey that give me the biggest reward as a musical mentor. And helping others to experience those moments is why I love teaching music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My style of teaching is based primarily on my experience as a professional musician.

We will set some goals together, select a few of your favorite songs, and discover a lesson plan that will help you achieve every musical goal that you set.

I usually ask *new* students to give yourself a couple of months to learn some of the musical techniques involved with learning a new instrument; and then (as soon as possible), we will begin learning the music that you want to play!

I have a strong background in understanding "how music works" and how concepts of music theory can be used practically (and easily) as you begin learning the music you love.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano, 2 keyboards, electric/acoustic guitars, ukuleles, bass guitars, banjo, violin, seating available, street parking.

*** Specialties ***
Beginners: I will help you increase your comfort and confidence when learning the instrument, and help eliminate any nerves in order to maximize your growth as a musician.

Intermediate Level Students: Take your talent from good to great!

Advancing Students: Get the feedback you need to really go pro. Allow me to connect you with a vast network of musicians and producers.

Producing Music: In my studio, we can record and produce the music that you create, or create cover-versions of your favorite songs!

About Me

Hello!

My name is David, and I am a music teacher of many different subjects. These include guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, recording, music theory, production, composition and film music composition.

All styles, and all ages. Classical, Rock, Alternative, Blues, Jazz, and more!

I have a Masters Degree in music from The University of Melbourne in Australia, as well as having the distinction of a Bachelors Degree in Music from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. I am one of the 16% of people who attended Cornish that actually graduated from their school.

Many times a student will come to me after having been with another teacher for some time,.. they express to me that the other instructor did not teach them what they wanted to learn, nor did they achieve the result that they wanted. The instructor perhaps had them mired in endless exercises and studies that were great to get you ready to play music, but perhaps was not music in and of itself. I find that when I get right down to the nitty gritty of playing, and show my students a song they love and know, and get them playing their instrument, by the end of the session that they are usually thrilled and excited. In the end it makes them work harder and practice long because THEY ARE PLAYING MUSIC ON THE THEIR INSTRUMENT!!!

Certainly exercises are of paramount importance, but when you can make that connection with a student and help them to relate to the guitar the exercises are ultimately easier to them, and the experience of playing guitar an enjoyable and less alienating task.

Grab your guitar and start today!! Let's get you playing TODAY!!!!

TESTIMONIALS:

"I am very happy with my decision to take lessons with David. In just 2 months I've gone from strumming some chords to understanding picking patterns, learning how to put together an entire song, and expanding my techniques. I am very surprised at how much technical skill I have been able to pick up in such a short period of time"

Marianne Burch, Tacoma

"I'm 46 years old and my only known talent is for overcomplicating things. I've always admired a good guitar player and wanted to learn to play myself--who doesn't?--but felt I didn't have the talent or just "couldn't do it." Then I found David Jaedyn C. and he said, 'Oh yes you can. Commit to 4 lessons up front and you'll see that you can.' I took the leap and sure enough, he had me playing blues riffs in less than one month. All I had to do was listen and do as he instructed me to and it all comes very naturally. There's no stress, just a whole lot of fun! If you're like me and you thought you couldn't play guitar, start with David and just have some fun with it. It's simple. You won't want to put the guitar down again!"

Dan DuBeau, Tacoma

I had been playing guitar for about 5 years and had only been self taught. I found myself completely stuck playing the same chords and not able to play riffs or solos at all. In my first lesson I was playing the blues with slides and hammer ons and pull offs. In a couple of lessons he had me soloing in different keys and playing riffs from guitar gods! He was able to teach me in a couple lessons what took me years trying to teach myself! He makes lessons so much fun because not only are you learning the music theory but he relates it to popular songs that you can practice along with. He also has so much knowledge in other aspects as well. He can teach you about music gear and amps or help you compose your own music. He caters to your style and taste in music and can teach you ANYTHING!

Ashley Allen

I love guitar period, but it's overtly frustrating when you have no idea where to start, or how to play at all. I went through multiple guitar instructors trying to learn how to play and each of them weren't very specific, or didn't hone in on any one thing at a time so you could really start to get it down and process it. Then we happened to find David, and he was really what we were looking for. I started picking up chords like no other, It helped, and is helping tremendously. He goes into depth about the song,letting you comprehend it a little more, and ultimately learning it quicker and better.

Skye Reed, Tacoma WA

I have had 4 different Blues guitar Teacher in the last 6 months, getting nowhere as far as really playing some Blues until I ran across David. The other teachers just wanted me to learn the pentatonic scales, Major and Minor. That took a lot of boring weeks and I am sure I will need to know those scales but I just wanted someone to show / teach me Blues chords, related to Blues songs and the timing to the chord changes so I could start playing some kind of Blues. I have had 6 one hour lessons so far with David and I am playing the Blues. The first 4 hours Dave showed me a E, A, B7 blues chord progression with some step up and step down notes. The 2nd 2 hours Dave showed me a A, D9, A7,E9 Blues chords and Blues timing with slides.

I take one hour Lessons every Thursday and in 6 hours I am playing the Blues. I picked up the guitar about 6 months ago, started teaching myself and not really getting anywhere. I am not a fast learner, about average in learning something new. Now I set a home Learning my guitar and polishing the Blues songs that David has taught me, starting to get FUN.

Les Fairley Tacoma, Wa.

Working with David has made me focus on areas of my chops that needed fine tuning. He provides the basic exercises and tools that, when practiced enough in a zen-like manner, clarifies your understanding of movement on the fret board, and makes you sound a bit more professional. Questions regarding speed, theory, notation, composition, and even string size, are ready for answer with David, which is what keeps me working with him. From begining, to intermediate, to professional levels, if you're looking to improve your chops, Dave's your guy.

Frank Lorenzo, Seattle WA

I had tried many different instructors and had become very frustrated with trying to learn guitar. Within one lesson David had me playing ACDC and RUSH! David just has a way of explaining things so that they make sense and doesn't waste any time getting right down to the nuts and bolts of guitar. A lot of other instructors spend alot of time getting you 'ready' to play guitar, but with David we got down to playing guitar right away!

About Me

It’s not the stage, it’s not the glory: it’s the pure joy of playing music. We often put musicians on a pedestal: “this guy’s better than I am, I’ll never be that good.” Here’s a quote from one of the best guitarist of our time:

“I dedicated all the time I had to it. The 10 hour workout was just what I put in the magazine at the time, but for me it was every waking moment.” ~ Steve Vai‎

To Steve, it was the music that gave him great joy. Simply put, he played because he loved it. This is my goal as a teacher: to show people that music takes time, it takes determination, it takes passion, and most importantly, it’s really fun! It can be an expression of who you are.

“The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.” ~ B.B. King

“Every time you pick up your guitar to play, play as if it’s the last time.” ~ Eric Clapton

This is a journey I have been on for 13 years. A journey that has involved studying many genres, including flamenco in Spain; playing in bands from French jazz to bluegrass to rock; and teaching all different ages and levels. To be honest, I don’t have it all figured out. In the five years of teaching through 4/4 school of music, I have learned just as much from my students as they have from me. That is the beauty of music: it transcends so many things. If you would like to go on that journey with me then please contact TakeLessons.
