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.

As a guitarist, my primary concern is with your technique. I will show you proven strategies to help you play with power, control, and minimal effort. These principals set the foundations from which all world-class players are built. Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Guitar is a fabulous instrument because of its incredible versatility. Together we will discover the many roles that the guitar can play including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

Josh
Dan is one of the kindest, most patient teachers I've ever worked with. His music background and talent are extensive and you couldn't find a better person to learn any instrument, whether you are an adult or a kid. Highly recommend!
Britney
I'm so glad I chose Dan as an instructor to learn guitar. If you want someone who's professional, fun to work with, and knows his stuff, Dan is the teacher for you.
Christopher
At first, I was a little nervous to take guitar lessons online. I wasn't sure if they would be as productive as in person lessons. But after working with Dan all those nerves went away. His easy going approach and the ability to play seemingly every instrument makes him an ideal teacher for any musical discipline. Do yourself a favor and book a lesson with Dan.
