Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

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!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. 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 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playin

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have been playing the acoustic guitar for 13 years. As a recent graduate from Southeastern Louisiana University, I have been teaching guitar and ukulele lessons as well as classes since the spring of 2017. I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance with my primary instrument being the guitar.
I can also help you to acquire a solid foundation of music theory knowledge. You can better understand music theory concepts if they are paired with guitar techniques to supplement them.
If you are a complete beginner, do not be afraid! I will help you to learn at a pace which is comfortable but still effective for you. These lessons will be focused and designed to fit YOUR needs. Let's learn together :)

"Theresa is most excellent. There's no question that she knows music and is an accomplished musician, but the real trick is being able to share that talent with a saugsage-fingered doob such as myself. And make it seem a reasonable proposition, something you could do. She has an innate style of instruction that is at once comforting and challenging,setting the bar ever higher while giving enough encouragement that you want to do better. My highest recommendation."

"Eric is the real deal as a guitar teacher. I personally play the guitar myself, but as any parent knows when it comes to teaching your own child there is going to be some resistance no matter what! Lol. Eric is very well educated in music and has the rapport to teach beginners as well as advanced students. My son looks forward to his time with Eric and considers him a friend as well! In closing, if your looking for an instructor that has a solid music background that can channel that knowledge into your child or self, look no further!"

What Greg does that means the most to me is that he actually believes in me and convinced me of my potential. Greg has been a big part in my life and has been a huge support in helping me with my music career. I’d rate him more than 5 stars if I could!"

"Over the course of several months, Omar guided me to a comfort level with guitar I never knew could come so quickly. Omar is engaging and knowledgable, combining practical guitar knowledge with bits of theory when I was interested in learning what's behind the nuts and bolts. He's flexible and open with his approach, tailoring it to my interests in music and also answering questions I had when buying my first guitar. And, he's a great guy! I would highly recommend Omar to other prospective students of any instrument."

"When I retired at the age of 64 I wanted to fulfill my lifelong dream of learning how to play an instrument. I selected the guitar and I have not looked back. I have been taking lessons from Tom Letizia for six years. Although I know I am not as quick to learn as young people are there is not a day that goes by that I do not enjoy playing. Tom is extremely talented, knowledgeable, understanding, and patient. He always encourages. If you ever want to learn the guitar I highly recommend Tom."

"Mark instructs my 8-year-old daughter for the past 4 months. He's patient, polite, and well-organized. My daughter enjoys her lessons and has progressed nicely. 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. It was a testament to his wide-range as an instructor and his ability to cater to each student's interests and abilities."
