Hello! I'm friendly, passionate, and very knowledgeable -
with plenty of experience on stage and in the recording studio.

I have studied voice with famous teachers like William Riley (known for teaching Whitney Houston and Celine Dion) , Jan Smith (known for teaching Usher, Justin Bieber, Rob Thomas, Jill Scott, Keyshia Cole, India Arie.. ) and Producer John Poppo (credits include NSync, Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), and am excited to share what I've learned along the way!

My Goal as a Teacher:

ly sing without injury or strain, and the confidence to perform without doubt or inhibition!
*To create well rounded vocalists with solid technical foundation, emotionally connected performances, and strong stage presence.
*To share my passion for the arts, and spark creativity and power in others through musical expression.

Let's get started!

David R.

Brewster, NY

About David

Hi my name is David and I love and enjoy teaching guitar lessons to students of all ages and I come to your home for lessons. My goal in life is to enrich people's lives with music. The first thing I do is interview the student and find out why they want to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills requir
ed to learn those songs. I create an organized custom guitar lesson workbook for each of my students at no cost to the student or parent. This way, my students have a weekly organized practice routine and they become successful. Having a teaching degree, (B.A. Music - Conservatory of Music - Concentration: Studio Composition / Master's in Education - M.A.T. / Adolescence Education (Grades 5-12) 3.56 GPA).

I create all of the guitar lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, rhythm, chords, scales, riffs, arpeggio's, songs, and exercises etc. I break down songs into easy digestible parts so students can learn a song in a logical and most manageable way. I use a color coded method to teach that I created that help students not only learn and understand scales and chords but also they are able to see visually how scales and chords are created. I currently teach private guitar lessons and have worked for 12 years in our local schools as a teacher with students K through 12. For 2 years, from 2012 to 2014 I taught an after-school enrichment guitar and songwriting class. I created the curriculum and music workbook specifically for 6 and 7-year old children whom I taught at Pequenakonck Elementary School in North Salem, NY. In College I won an award for the most Improved Studio Composition Student at Purchase College. I incorporate lessons that I have learned in the classroom as a teacher to help my guitar students learn. I feel the most important thing for my students to learn about music is to have a lot of fun.

This may just be the best instructor in the history of Instructors!

David has been mentoring our Foster Child and not only am I impressed with his personalized lesson plans, professionalism and overall organization, but more importantly I'm amazed by the connection he's made with my Foster Son.

It's the latter part that money just can't buying is very hard to find.

If you're in search of an instructor, be sure to give David a shout - you will not be disappointed!

Dylan M.

New Haven, CT

About Dylan

I am a performing musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in Musical Studies. Additionally, I began teaching and tutoring subjects in science and standardized test prep during the summer after 11th grade, helping students grasp fundamental principles of our world as well as achieve more desirable SSAT results. I strive to bring the right balance of patience and enthusiasm into all situations, whether working through beatbox flute grooves or evaluating multiple choice vocabulary questions. In music lessons, I strive to offer as much stylistic and historical context
as possible, so that students are able to gain a broader understanding of given material, as well as an open yet focused path to exploring their instrument. Ultimately, I wish to help students achieve their goals through harnessing their own strengths for musical and academic applications "beyond the page."
