David is a talented and extremely knowledgable musician. He has a deep love and respect for the music and imparts this love on his students. Always going above and beyond, he gives all of himself in his students, making sure they not only have proper technique, but a strong foundation of knowledge about the tradition of flamenco. He is able to breakdown and explain the complexities of this arcane art form in a way that is accessible to all levels of musicians. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
Aki M.
David is patient and enthusiastic about teaching how to play the guitar. He is also encouraging!
Adam R.
Had a great experience. David is patient, explains things clearly, and really knows his stuff. Definitely recommended.

Teaching Style
I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and play music. In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several components including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm), style, ear-training, reading and performance skills.

Expectations of Students
Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student. Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals.

"Perfect teacher for the passionate student

I've been taking lessons with Daniel for a few months now, and I have thoroughly enjoyed and grew from each lesson. If you're serious about making music for fun or professionally, he's the teacher for you.

What I like most is how he creates a beneficial and serious learning environment that's still incredibly fun and positive. After a few lessons we were already playing songs together, and he's taught me a more effective way to practice on my own, which was a major problem for me.

As soon as you meet Daniel, you can tell how passionate he is about his craft, and if you display your own passion for music, you will work great together, and you WILL progress. I highly recommend him!"

"Excellent teacher for students of all ages and experience

Robert has been assisting me with my bass guitar and acoustic guitar education. He has expertly weaved music theory into my lessons and has given me a huge boost to my musical confidence. I used to think some things would be too difficult and perhaps insurmountable but with his encouragement I feel a lot more confident. I have been helped because his lessons have been tailored to my needs and weaknesses. Robert is a very friendly music teacher who would be able to assist anyone of any age. I cannot recommend him enough."
