David W. Corvallis, OR

About David

Whatever music you want to sing—any style, any time period—I promise I will teach you to sing it in your very best voice. My name is David and I look forward to the opportunity to teach you how to sing your best, whatever style it is you want to learn. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music at Oregon State University, where I learned how to sing classical music well. In addition to that, I have years of experience in rock-and-roll bands, and have learned how to apply the lessons I learned from my classical voice teachers to my career as a (very) minor rock star. That's exactly what I want to help you with: whatever you want to sing, from any period in music history, I know how to teach you to sing with your best voice. Singing is one of the things that makes us all human and I ...

You'll find few singing instructors more in tune with (as it were) or more encouraging than David. He's extremely knowledgeable about music/voice theory and, as he gets to know your style and personality, will absolutely tailor lessons to your vocal strengths and needs. High recommendations all around!

David is a fantastic instructor!!! I personally love his unique approach which combines the art AND science of singing. His explanations of whats happening physiologically actually help you learn what is correct and incorrect technique. My singing has absolutely improved learning from David.

Saxophone · In studio
I had a great time with Ken as an instructor! He introduced me to the basics of saxophone. He made me feel comfortable and able to achieve. I have never played an instrument. His lesson plans and homework kept me moving along. I felt I had my feet under me as a result of his instruction. I wanted to learn to play for my church; I look forward to taking more lessons from Ken in-home in the future.
