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!

David is patient and enthusiastic about teaching how to play the guitar. He is also encouraging!

There is always an assessment period for the first few weeks to determine the student's level, knowledge, and interests. Once a better understanding is established, we can move forward with a typical lesson strategy, which involves a heavy focus on repertoire so the student can start playing with friends as soon as possible. For example, at the beginning of every lesson, I ask the student what questions they have from our last lesson, how they feel about things we've talked about in general, and briefly summarize the topics that we've worked on.
