Quick results, song based lessons. Emphasis on "play based" learning for young children. Emphasis on teaching you what you want to learn for older children and adults.
I've been teaching guitar for 14 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play many basic songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play your favorite ones and have learned many chords, strum patterns and techniques on your instrument. I specialize in getting you quick results so you are enjoying playing the songs you love while you progress with technique. I typically start beginners in open G tuning with familiar songs that I provide and openly take your suggestions of songs you want to learn. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

"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

David is a multi-instrumentalist, music producer, and mix engineer who works with artists at varying levels developing their skills, creativity, and music.

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 Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Technique
Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

I can definitely teach any serious student how to play well. I can get you ready to play in a band and perform live. Classic Rock, Blues and Jazz are my specialties. I've been teaching and performing these styles nationally for over 30 years. If you really want to learn how to play well, I'm your teacher. We'll definitely have fun and the more you practice, the more fun you'll have. And if you just want to learn a few chords and a few tunes to strum, we can do that too. You pick, guitar hero or just a fun hobby. Anyone can learn to play and have fun with the way I teach.

About Tom

I've been teaching and playing professionally for over 30 years. I take great care to make sure each student gets what they need to really enjoy music on the guitar. Each student has different musical styles they like and each has different abilities. I work with each student to focus on his or her

Tom is an excellent music teacher. He has been teaching our granddaughter classical guitar and we have been very pleased. I taught instrumental and vocal music in the public schools. I also taught strings at the Arts School .
He is well educated in the music field and has had so much performing experience so he has a very well rounded background, I think you would be very pleased
to study with Tom.

I have had a terrific experience working with Tom. Playing guitar for nearly 20 years, I was looking for advanced instruction and coaching. Focusing specifically on Jazz, Tom has helped me elevate my playing ability and understanding of the art form. Tom is a professional musician that has an ability to connect with his students of all ages and levels. I highly recommend working with Tom.

"My daughter has been taking lessons with Greg for several months now and is really enjoying learning in a creative and no pressure environment. She suffers from anxiety and he has tailored his approach to showcase her talents and give constructive feedback to help her improve. Greg is really good at getting a feel for what his students need so that he can give them individualized instruction that moves at a pace that they are comfortable with. I always stay to watch her lessons and I can honestly say that I’ve learned a great deal just from observation and it’s been fun for me to see her learning new things and having the confidence to play for others."

I also saw a recital of Mark's current students a few months ago and can attest to the wide diversity of students and musical styles he teaches. We heard beginners, folk, country, metal, you name it.

"I am having lessons with Devin almost every week for a while now. We have lessons at his studio and online. Both locations are great.
For me, there are pros to having both location options available depending on my schedule that morning.
His way of teaching is great. I'm an adult and never played a guitar before. And I feel he has an enormous amount of patients. But he is not afraid to introduce something new. If I tell him I'm not clear with something we learned last time he will repeat it. And go it over with me. Technically he really had me playing songs very soon in the lessons. But I'm not necessarily the fastest learner so the most important thing is my responsibility.
Practice Practice Practice.

I recommend Devin to any one that wants to start learning guitar. Or needs to improve.
As I mentioned before, I'm an adult. But I could only imagine he'd do great with children.

Oh, I just reminded my self one more nice thing about Devin the teacher. When I'm with him, or online with him. For some reason he makes me feel like the lessons he provides are created for me. Not just random lessons. he goes according to my pace."
