David D.

Scottsdale, AZ

About David

I've been playing guitar since I was 9 years old and teaching guitar since I was 14. I grew up playing in bands with friends. My parents would drive us (and a ton of equipment!) to wherever we were playing, which was sometimes 50 to 200 miles from home! I later did studio work and played as a solo entertainer. I also studied acting while in college, so being on stage and performing is very comfortable for me.
I have extensive experience in teaching both individuals and groups with regard to several different venues, including guitar, bass guitar, acting, public speaking, songwriting and stu
dio recording.
I also provide a unique service that my students tell me is very helpful. I record instructions, or demonstrations, and email them to you - on the spot! This way you don't get home and wonder "Now how did that go?" or, " How was I able to do that?" You just open the email and listen to it – whenever you like.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is geared toward each individual student. Everyone has different specific interests and desired outcomes, so my lessons are based on your priorities and your goals. Beginning with your first lesson you should feel inspired and excited! Even if you are just beginning to learn an instrument, you need to have a teacher who can supply you with what you need AND have you playing things that you like within a very short time.
This applies to all types of music; rock, standards, folk, metal, classic rock, popular, country, whatever you want to play. Beginner or advanced. So it's up to you -- just tell me what you want to get out of the lessons, and that is what we do! I may be the instructor, but YOU are the director.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Martin 1963 "000-18" acoustic guitar
Fender Telecaster electric guitar
Acoustic Amplifier (Acoustic is the brand name)
Digital Recorder (portions of lessons are recorded & emailed to you)
Digital Video Recorder (portions videoed and emailed to you)
All music, tab, and diagrams are supplied at no additional cost

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, sheet music, diagrams, and any and all notes pertinent to what we work on. I supply everything but the guitar that you are playing.

*** Specialties ***
Electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar. Rock, folk, gospel, country, finger-picking, vocal accompaniment, improvisation, lead guitar.

The Joy of Learning Music

He lights up the room when he picks up his guitar and plays! Dave draws his students in with his welcoming smile and sparkling eyes that seem to say, "I'm having so much fun here and I want you to have fun, too." His pure enjoyment ignites a spark in us. We're motivated to have that kind of fun with our music while studying hard to advance our skills and techniques and reach our personal goals.

Dave is the consummate teacher--he energizes and inspires, he is trustworthy, of impeccable character, a guitarist extraordinaire, a former counselor whose mission in life is to help others achieve success. He conducts every class with good humor and patience. He is an inventive instructor with a toolbox of unique ways students can learn skills and techniques more easily. He is an honest appraiser of our work whose positive comments encourage and motivate us. He's Dave, who knows and teaches every aspect of guitar repertoire--country, blues, gospel, pop, rock, etc. His instruction is centered on the student's music preferences and goals, and he integrates a progression of the skills and techniques we need to learn with the music we choose. Practice is welcome, as it brings us closer to playing the music we love. Dave is the teacher who opens doors to new aspects of music and encourages us to reach beyond our expectations for ourselves. It's amazing what we find beyond that horizon.

Dave is a teacher for all students. Whatever your talents and aspirations, you will achieve your goals. And along the way, you'll be the one saying, "I'm having so much fun here!"

Dave is a treasure, and taking lessons with him is a truly joyful experience!

Would like to take the time to tell you how much I like taking lessons from David Doud. I have been taking lessons for 3 years now from teacher to teacher. The lesson's I was taking was not going directions I wanted to go. I just wanted to play guitar and make a song book up. When I called David up I explained to him what I wanted and he delivered. In a very short time I created a song book and my guitar playing getting better buy the week. January of next year I will turn 71 year old. I will continue to take lessons from David for a long time. I look forward to each weeks lesson with David because he make's lesson's so interesting and understandable and fun.I did not have that with other teachers they just made the lessons to hard and not fun.

WE LOVE OUR DRUM INSTRUCTOR! My son was an extremely high energy very distracted five year old when we started lessons with Mr. Al. Let's just say that my son is not an easy student, but our son had already developed an obsessive attachment to music, most intensely to drums. We expected someone would be able to teach him drums, but we also got someone who is patient, flexible, understanding, and always respectful and kind to our son. We see Mr. Al in his home studio, and at now at seven years old, Joey's skill has definitely progressed. In fact, his learning has a momentum that our entire family can see. But Mr. Al has given Joey so much more than just that. Joey's love of music has flourished beyond measure. Joey now tells Mr. Al that he loves him after every lesson, WOW! We have been so pleased that my seventeen year old daughter now also takes lessons with Mr. Al too. Mr. Al is the perfect instructor for us. My kids think he's cool, and we think he's just fantastic all the way around!

One of the Best

I have studied with several instructors, and I found Al to be the best. He not only knows his craft and takes pride in it, but he has a unique way of connecting with his students.

He listens, observes, and then starts to create a curriculum that is specific to the student. He can then convey this material in a manner that is fun, easily understood, and constructive.

I would highly recommend Al as an instructor.

MY daughter loves playing!!

I tried to teach my daughter, Rose, how to play the guitar and I couldn't get her to follow through with her lessons. Al has made the guitar fun for her. She'll play AT LEAST an hour a day now, learning songs given to her and playing warm-ups like scales.

Al also teaches music theory so Rose understands music more. Any teacher that gets a student that excited is doing something right.

Richard C.

Phoenix, AZ

About Richard

I started taking piano lessons at the ripe age of 4, but I quickly found my calling on the guitar. At the age of 20, and with 13 years of playing experience, I graduated from the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery (guitar building), after building both an acoustic and an electric guitar and receiving repair certification from Fender.
I later completed my Bachelor’s Degree of Music in the field of classical guitar performance, at ASU in 2007.
During this time I expanded to other instruments such as the Ukulele, Banjo, Mandolin, Dulcimer and Bass Guitar.

I am involved with a number of extra mu
sical activities that are available for you. First, I am part of a weekly jam session where my students meet and jam on a rotation with other music students in the phoenix area (drummers, singers, piano players, other guitarists of all ages) From this has spawned a number of bands. It's a lot of fun! So if you have any interest in starting a band and don't know where to find other players, let me know!

Also, I arrange and conduct for an electric guitar ensemble. This class is by far, one of a kind. In this program, I take classical symphonies and arrange all the parts out for electric guitars. Recently, my students just completed Bizet's "Farandole" (check out the audio clip) which I arranged for four electric guitars and one bass guitar. The ensemble program is more detailed oriented than the jam session, so this class is by audition only.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy Bach and Beethoven, but I still love a good old- fashioned heavy metal band. I have a keen sense of constructive criticism, all while still remembering what it’s like to be a beginner. I pride myself on a teaching style that is refined, yet relaxed. I love to joke around and have fun, but remember, your recital is just around the corner!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ keyboard, guitar, bass, amps, banjos, and seating for parents. Small inventory of guitar supplies available for purchase.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide handouts and bring my own instruments. Students are required to have their own instrument

*** Specialties ***
I have always believed that improvisation is one of the best ways to learn a fret board. Improv allows the player to just dive in to playing, without having to stare at a piece of paper the whole time. Out of all the things I have been trained to do, I feel that improvisation is my strong point.

Merrill L.

Scottsdale, AZ

About Merrill

I excel at mending breaks, achieving tonal accuracy from 'sloppy' or 'off-pitch' singers, strengthening the voice where it is weak and sweetening it where it is harsh, expanding range toward its physical possibilities, focusing the voice, bringing ease and confidence where there was strain and worry. In short, I teach students how to remove the obstacles that block us from joyfully expressing our hearts in song.

Vocal studies include many years with vocal Masters - people who know how to free and enhance each individual voice at a rapid pace - and an M.A. in Voice. (See Musical Training
below.) I have taken this training onto the stage and into my own teaching studio and used my experiences of what does and does not work - and what is most effective in the least amount of time - to benefit my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are fun and full of specific information and vocal "ah ha's" to bring rapid improvement. Each lesson is recorded on CD for students to work with at home.

We work on songs in the genre(s) of a student's choosing, and exercises specifically selected to build your voice. The exercises I use are culled from Speech Level Singing, Ann Thornton, Edward Sayegh (Garcia Marchesi method), and from my own inventions. The Speech Level Singing exercises are marvelous for helping easy production, chord coordination, and range. I am not a Speech Level Singing instructor, as I do not want to be limited to only this technique. Ann Thornton concepts deliver remarkable clarity, ease, and focus, as well as further refinement of chord coordination. Those exercises that I use from Edward Sayegh increase body engagement and the power of the sound.

We work songs from mp3s and/or sheet music. I can transpose and change the speed of recordings to taylor generic karaoke CDs to a student's voice.

I expect students to make solid - often very rapid - progress. And all students who practice meet this expectation.

*** Specialties ***
My specialties are starting voices and fundamentally fixing vocal difficulties. My passion is enabling the technical side of the voice the express what the spirit of the voice wants.

Children, teens, adults, no matter what the age, I know how to start you off into or return you to - a world of song.

Whatever your age or level, if your voice breaks or is uneven ... or you struggle with limited range... or you are straining... or if you have trouble with pitch accuracy ... or your voice sounds fuzzy or nasal or harsh - I specialize in guiding you to vocal ease.

Merrill is excellent! She has done wonders with my voice. She works with you to bring out the best in your voice, and lesson after lesson, she teaches you not only technique, but also ways to really connect with your music and bring it to life. She uses humor--lessons are FUN! Merrill is also very personal; she doesn't have a cookie-cutter approach to teaching. Merrill gets to know you, and makes sure that she is teaching you and working on your voice, and every aspect to make it your best. She listens VERY intently to every note you sing, and helps every aspect of your voice that she can. I consider it a precious gift to have a teacher who won't let you or your voice get away with "mediocre," but patiently takes you to your best. Together you and Merrill set measurable goals, and as a student, I can say that I am defeating "vocal demons" and reaching heights that were only pipe dreams before. Thank you, Merrill, for taking my voice and music to a whole new level--and for making it so much fun in the process.

Is there any way that I could give Merrill 10 stars? If there was, I'd surely do it! I've been working with Merrill for a while, and she has helped me grow from a tentative novice to a full-fledged confident performer. With each lesson, I leave with a better understanding of my voice, and what I need to do to be the best that I can be. Thank you, Merrill!

Singing · Online
I've been a full time touring singer/songwriter for years and although I get lots of praise for my voice, I've always felt it could be better. Merrill saw me perform in Los Angeles and was able to point out exactly what I thought might be lacking with my voice already. Since I've started working with Merrill via Skype (I live in Atlanta), my understanding of my own voice and what it can do has gone to a new level. I'm learning things that, I feel, will take me from being a pretty good singer who is resting on what he can get by with naturally to being a real vocalist. I'm excited to find out what my full potential is and it's with her guidance that I will get there. She's a blast to work with and nothing gets past her. If you want to improve and have fun doing it, you should get in touch with her ASAP :)

Marty T.

Scottsdale, AZ

About Marty

Hi I'm Marty T. and there is nothing I love more than playing and teaching the guitar (except for my wonderful family)!
I was born and bred in New York City where I learned the art of guitar playing from the finest musicians in the world. By the age of 16 I was performing in the famous Catskill Mountain hotels. Being surrounded by famous musicians and musical acts gave me the drive to continue my studies with renowned guitarist / teacher Howard Morgan.
While attending the City of New York University I continued my studies with legendary guitarist Joe Monk.
I also studied with Joe Ravo and
Billy Bauer. By the time I graduated college, I had more musical work than I could handle so I opted to be a professional musician.
In this endeavor I ended up playing every venue possible in the Tri State Area. From The Waldorf Astoria and Plaza Hotel to show bands to Country Club extravaganzas, from jazz to classic rock, blues, Brazilian and so much more.
I boast a repertoire of literally thousands of songs....dedicated to memory!
This extensive knowledge is passed through to my students in an exciting and more important, a FUN manner. When a student is having fun while learning I feel as if I have achieved a personal goal.
I have performed with The Drifters, The Spinners, B.J. Thomas, The Tokens, Legends from Las Vegas and countless other name acts playing acoustic and electric guitar.
I continue to perform on a regular basis all over Arizona. I am quite well known and respected as a guitarist and bandleader.

*** Lesson Details ***
In general, most lessons are divided into two sections.

The first being the formal study of the instrument including the reading of music and the various techniques that incorporate the student's goals.

The second part of the lesson is how we apply these techniques to songs. This is commonly known to my students as the "fun" part of the lesson. All students truly enjoy applying techniques learned to their favorite songs.

After three to six months of lessons the student will be able to play their favorite songs.They will have also acquired the musical education to apply this knowledge to their goal, whatever that may be.

I take an extremely laid back approach to teaching, incorporating humor and positive reinforcement.

My students are asked to practice for a half hour per day and then then encouraged to "play" for at least another half hour.

I never forget that if it weren't for the fun and joy, I would not be involved in music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Designated music room with a baby grand piano, a keyboard, full PA system, amps and a recording system

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a temporary guitar for a student. One of my instruments is 3/4 size for younger students.
I will recommend books that the student should purchase (I can also obtain these books)
Students should provide 2 chairs (no arms) and a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I like to customize methods for the individual. I do prefer the Berklee series for more serious guitar students. I have used Alfred's for some younger ones. Personally, I was brought up on the Mel Bay method and I don't really care for it. Besides general guitar lessons I can offer instruction to bands as I play bass keys and drums as well.
Music Theory is a very strong point for me. Ear training goes hand in hand with theory. Being a performer too, I can teach the student the ropes of stage performance.
