I've been performing and teaching guitar and bass full time since 1994. I love providing my students with a fun musical experience while helping them achieve their individual goals. Over the years, I've helped countless students find their own unique musical path.
I feel very comfortable teaching most styles of music. I love working with children, teens, and adults. My classes are fun, challenging, and down to earth.
Whatever your goals are, I'll design a lesson plan for you to help you achieve them. Every week will build from the previous week's lesson. If you aren't sure what your goals are, I'll help you find several, and give you clearly defined projects to help you achieve them. Here are some examples of great goals to work toward:
-Learning your first song
-Writing a song
-Making a recording
-Finding other musicians to play with
-Auditioning for a band
-Auditioning for music school, or for a music scholarship
Learning a song is an amazing experience. ...
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!
I can teach all genres as well as all the different techniques, such as slap and pop, two handed tapping, etc.
I have been a professional bassist for my entire adult life (and some of my childhood, too!) and I know what it takes to be successful. I like to understand my student's goals and their musical preferences so they get a lesson experience that is tailored to their specific needs and wants. We discuss technique, scales, song form, chord progressions, famous bassists, and more!
We will work on left-hand and right-hand technique as well as music reading skills.
