Do you want to learn how to play your favorite songs? Don't want to spend weeks learning to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star? I'm the teacher for you! I've been playing guitar for 16 years and in that time I've become proficient in several genres and styles. Rock, pop, blues, funk, country, reggae, folk, just to name a few. After a few introductory lessons, we will start learning your favorite songs! Using those songs, I will teach you notes, chords, scales, technique, and music theory. Let's get started and have some fun!

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I am a bass player first, not a guitarist who also teaches bass. Students will learn technique, theory and groove from a teacher who understands that as bass players, we are in a unique position. Since bass is both a harmony and rhythm instrument we have the opportunity to develop into leaders in

David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.
Robert F.
As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended.......

"I love my guitar lessons with Indigo! She is an amazing teacher and makes you feel very comfortable by offering a warm and supportive environment in which to learn. Indigo has given me a completely new perspective on guitar playing. I started learning music theory and ear training from her and she even has me singing, something I never believed I would try. She is a very patient and supportive teacher. Her encouragement and her excitement about my growth as a musician are extremely motivating and I find myself increasingly passionate about learning music theory and look forward to my guitar lessons. I highly recommend her."

"As a 40 year old just deciding to play guitar I was quite intimidated to get started. From the first lesson Marc made me feel very comfortable. He does a fantastic job of customizing the lesson to your interests as well as targeting area's for improvement to help you reach the goals you've set.

He is patient and encouraging and is very effective at helping you to understand the learning timeline to keep you interested and motivated.

I would highly recommend Marc to anyone beginner or advanced, he does a phenomenal job."

Nice guy too!"

""I love practicing and playing guitar, dad"

That's what my 8 1/2 year old daughter says to me while practicing and after she has finished her lessons with Jason. I couldn't be happier with the lessons he is providing her and her sentiment speaks for itself. That’s all I need. If she’s happy, I'm happy. I see her learning, improving, and having fun after every 30-min lesson. She also wants to practice!!!

Jason has a very easy-going style that connects with my daughter #and many others judging by the other reviews, which I read before selecting Jason# so I would 100% recommend him to anyone searching this site for a qualified guitar teacher for their child or themselves."
