Although this was my first lesson with Brian, he is a perfect match for me. He has a gentle, docile personality, good humored and very patient. He's especially great with beginners, older students and special needs individuals. In close proximity so he didn't have to travel far. His teaching style, for me, is very effective and he's a very nice person.

Brian is the best! Highly encouraging - especially for me as a beginner.

"Learn the rules like a pro, then break them as an artist" - Pablo Picasso

As a music producer, mix engineer and artist, I understand the need for proficiency as well as the artistry. My approach to teaching is customized to each individual as we are not all the same. I pay close attention to how each person learns and work with what the student can excel in. When needed we will do drills or work on theory or break down your technique to overcome any obstacles. With my industry expertise, I can help you become a proficient musician and help develop your style and artistry.

I look forward to working with you!

About David

I am a multi-instrumentalist, music producer, and mix engineer who works with artists at varying levels developing their skills, creativity, and music. Over the course of nearly 2 decades playing in bands and working in music production, I know the skillset and mindset necessary to perform at a pro

great experience for my daughter. David was very knowledgeable and supportive! Highly recommend
Kimberly
I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!
Christian J.
David is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist and producer. I was introduced when he recorded an EP for my band and since then, we've spent many an evening talking about performing, recording, teaching and making music. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable about his craft. I always learn something new, interesting and immediately applicable to my playing when I work with him. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of his students and they have always been exceptionally professional and prepared. I highly recommend David for lessons in whatever discipline you request - the crossover knowledge from all of his experiences will be invaluable to you.

Online Bass Guitar Teacher

Fingers or a pick? Why did you you choose electric bass over the guitar? I’ll help you understand the role of a bass guitar and show you basic techniques to those catchy fills that have been remembered for decades.

Beginner level: technique and positioning is paramount. I prefer to use fingers over a pick to begin with but it is purely your choice. I will start from one position (left hand) and work with the right amount of finger strength (both hands), timing of notes, and coordination. A plethora of popular songs can be played in just one spot on the fret!

Next, I will incorporate some simple theory and show you how to move around the fretboard comfortably by shifting or sliding and really emphasize cooperation with the right hand. You want to make those notes shine and “mean it”. You are the band’s “anchor” and you Must listen to your bandmates (even if you are just jamming to your favorite songs).

My goal is to make you feel comfortable in your role and get the ...

Devin is remarkably patient with our awkward, shy son, who he's been teaching for around 5 years. He keeps lessons fun and lets our son lead with his music interests. Devin is always on time, communicative, and professional. Our son (who is easily distracted) says the time flies by!

Devin is an excellent and knowledgeable teacher! He taught me the basics of Ableton and the details of music production, recording audio/midi tracks, sound libraries, effects, etc. He guided me through the songwriting process, and made this complex software easier to navigate through and understand. I highly recommend Devin for anyone interested in enhancing their skills in music production. Thank you Devin for all your help!

Rick has been my son's bass guitar teacher for the last year. We are impressed with his genuine care and concern for our 17 year old son as a person and a bass guitar player. He always works with us and our schedule considering we have to make a 30-40 minute drive across San Antonio for his lessons. We highly recommend Rick for both his great character qualities as well as his guitar instructor expertise!"
