Overview

I believe in: the power of music to enrich human existence and create community; the value of all styles of music; the creative potential of every individual; the value of trust, integrity and respect within a learning environment; instilling in an individual an unending belief in ones self; and excellent and inspiring musical mentorship.

I hold a BA in music performance, have over 25 years of professional music experience and am dedicated to providing a quality, comprehensive learner-based music education.

Programs available include: Private guitar and bass lessons, improvisation, music theory, ear training, rhythm studies, fingerboard knowledge and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kind My nine year old son has had 4 lessons with David and we have been very impressed. David is very patient and my son is really comfortable in the lessons and in the environment of his studio. We would definitely recommend David to other students. July 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excited for every lesson! I can't believe I have only completed 3 lessons and I'm working on playing two of my favorite songs. David is very patient and has always had an answer to everyone of my questions. I'm so glad I signed up for lessons! February 6, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by David is an excellent, kind teacher. I have really been pleased with my experience with David. He has made me feel very comfortable and I think he is an excellent teacher. I plan to continue my lessons and I hope to get my daughter going to him as well. December 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Teacher! This man is a fantastic teacher; I've only had my first three lessons, and feel i have grown more than in two months of classes at a previous music school. He really helps break it down in ways that I can understand, and demystifies music in ways that allows me to see it as a real possibility for me; while at the same helping me appreciate the infinity of what can be said with very little. I highly recommend this man June 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Student I am very excited and motivated about playing & learning right now and David is a big part of that. He is a perfect fit for me and doing a great job of identifying and correcting weaknesses that I need to work on and how. He also applies the lesson pace and structure to my feedback and level. He is also very flexible which is great. It's also fun to hear the drum beat to play with and stay in rythum with the music. Thanks David! March 29, 2012
