Dave is a great instructor and a really cool guy. I'm an adult student, with a job, family responsibilities, etc. Dave really works with my schedule and teaches me exactly what I want to learn, which helps me progress as fast a possible. He works with me to get an understanding of my goals with the piano, and structures each lesson to get me there quickly.

For my money, Dave's instruction is worth every penny.

Well worth the time and money

Dave was able to meet me where I was and move me toward the goals I had. As as an adult learner, I went in with zero experience with the saxophone but a clear picture of what I wanted to play and somewhat how I wanted to sound. Dave has a great set-up where we have privacy to make noise (sax's aren't known for being quiet). He's able to pluck things out on the piano quickly or to pull something up on the computer or just play. I went from starting out, to wanting to play a few songs, to improvising. Dave has been very helpful and ultimately keeps me improving and moving forward. I've taken other lessons on other instruments, but I will say this is one of the better teachers I have had. He listens well and is able to articulate what he wants you to do --- not trying to be a guru, but more of a guide that keeps you on track.

Dave is the best teacher. Hands down!

After having some rough experiences with past teachers in my life, I came to Dave with a very specific goal in mind. To learn piano so I may graduate college. I had a lot to learn very quickly! I am an older student which made this task a bit intimidating. He is very patient and is able to explain things in a way I understand. He has a very light and nice personality which makes me want to focus and try hard. He definitely pushes me, but in a way that isn't scary.

Dave is the best. He is an incredible teacher and a really nice guy. His studio is really neat and professional which matches his personality. Take lessons with him. You'll be glad you did!

Don't let the saxophone fool you, Dustin is a top notch voice coach. He has been a professional musician his whole life so he has a deep rooted understanding of music theory. He seems to be a natural teacher too, who is dedicated to helping his students learn and grow. He was able to figure out where I was at quickly and start at my level. Highly recommended!!
