I have played guitar for over 35 years professionally and currently do as well. As a music major at Broward college I studied theory and am able to apply and explain this in my teachings. i.e Rudiments, The staff guitar tabs, scales, chords, inversions, box systems, linear and horizontal scales, modes. etc. I can teach, rock, pop, classical and other genres of guitar, and have done extensive research in finger picking styles. Most importantly, when a student wants to learn a particular song, instead of showing it to them, I show them the process and give them the tools and theory behind figuring it out for themselves.

With an AA at Broward College as a Voice major and piano minor, 3 years with Gold Coast Opera chorus, Former Musical Director and lead voice instructor at Paul Green School of Rock, and over 30 years teaching mentoring and performing, I am able to offer a diverse innovative range of educational res

Whether you're a first day student or a seasoned player, I've probably taught someone just like you before. I especially love teaching theory and fretboard logic, but I can help you learn whatever you're looking to take on.

With every student, I create a specific path for you that gives you what you're looking to learn (aka what got you excited about picking up the guitar in the first place) along with the essentials to help make your journey as smooth as possible. If there isn't quality tab readily available, I'm down to transcribe the tune for you and I guarantee you'll laugh and enjoy yourself (at no extra charge of course).

About Dave

I've been playing the guitar for 25 years now and teaching for nearly two decades. In 2006, I received his BA in Jazz performance from U-Mass Amherst and since then I've performed anywhere from local bars and cafes, in pits for musical theater, as a show band musician for Carnival Cruise Lines and

Had a great lesson with Dave! Fast-paced and challenging, I felt like he really made good use of our time!
Ken Chavez
Dave is the best instructor I could have hoped for. As an older beginner, I was not sure how much I could pick up but I have made good progress in the past year with his lessons. Lots of fun, look forward to learning more riffs and songs!
Samantha
My 11 year old has had weekly guitar lessons from Dave for two years now.
Her knowledge and confidence in playing the guitar, has greatly improved. Dave gets all the credit for that.
He works well with her, is communicative, and is as flexible as he can be, even last minute.
I have, and will continue to recommend Dave to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons

George explained things very simply.
Alexander J.
George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.
Tracie S.
George is totally passionate about teaching. He encourages the kids to practice and do their best. He has great knowledge and understanding of music theory. He is pleasant, easy going and works really well with kids. Overall really good teacher. Recommend!

I have been taking banjo lessons from Kevin for a couple of years. Kevin is a wonderfully talented instructor and a great musician himself! He shapes my lessons around practical use in performance, always encouraging and ever-challenging, but with plenty of patience and just plain fun. Trust me, you will not find a better teacher!

How to Use a Capo: 5 Useful Tips

Have you ever been frustrated with the key of a song, and wanted to change it instantly without having to transpose everything and learn new chords? Well, now you can! Learning how to use a capo can be a lifesaver, especially if you enjoy singing along or if you frequently work with vocalists. For an easy, hands-on way to see how a capo works, try playing a normal C chord. Place your capo on the first fret. Then play the same position you just played - you'll notice it's now half-step higher …
