I began playing electric bass in 1984 performing in rock bands in the late 1980's to the present. When I began my formal education in 2006 I realized the importance of understanding chord structure/theory and began a love of studying guitar. Studying music theory and music composition/arranging completed my understanding musical concepts and how they apply directly to the instrument. *** Lesson Details *** Beginner students will learn the basics: learning proper left-hand/finger placement, learning the notes on the neck of the guitar, basic scales and chords, proper right-hand picking and/or finger-style (proper technique will pay off in the long run, improper technique/ bad habits take longer to break). Learning can be boring if you're limited to just exercises; adding a few easy songs ...
I have been teaching and performing as a full time career since 1994. Over the years, I have developed an approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I will help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals. *** Lesson Details *** Musicians think, learn, and create in many different ways. Some are visual learners, preferring to learn by studying diagrams and reading notes. Others learn intuitively, simply by listening, imitating, and then creating. My objective is to find the learning style which works best for each of my students. I can help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals. *** Specialties *** I'm ...
As mentioned above, David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.
David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!
David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Baltimore, MD. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 18 years he has been performing (13 of those professionally) and playing guitar, he has released 4 CDs and written over 200 original songs. He has opened for major national acts like Journey, Maroon 5, Toby Keith, My Chemical Romance, The Used, Thrice, Story of the Year, The Bouncing Souls, Eric Hutchinson, Virginia Coalition and Graham Colton. In the process, he has performed at such notable venues as FedEx Field, Nationals Park, Jiffy Lube Live/Nissan Pavilion, the 9:30 Club, Rams Head Live and the Recher Theatre.

I can teach all genres as well as all the different techniques, such as slap and pop, two handed tapping, etc.
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument
I have played the bass guitar for a church. I understand the fundamentals and can teach people how to play and enjoy watching them express themselves through music. I will use any materials that the student has in their possession. When necessary I will research materials.
Hello, my name is David G. I have been playing music for 20yrs. I currently play at a church, and have been the lead musician for the past 8yrs. I am the son of a preacher, so that is the reason for the help in Bible Studies. I was interested in becoming an architect/engineer, that is the reason for the math skills. Above all, I enjoy seeing people learn and grow and I want to help people accomplish their goals. I look forward to learning from the students, just because I am a tutor does not mean that I know everything. I welcome the students questions. If I know the answer I will try to thoroughly explain the answer so the student understands. If I do not know the answer I will research and find the answer to help all of us learn. Thank you for the opportunity.
