Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for the past thirteen years, and I've worked with all kinds of students. From children, to teenagers, to adults, everyone who I've had the pleasure to sit down with has told me what they want to get out of the guitar, and I've made it my responsibility to help them reach their goal. Within the first few lessons, every student develops a new perspective, and approaches the guitar with the clarity and confidence to grow as a musician at a pace comfortable for them.

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!
Julian
Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

My kids loved Dave and can’t wait for him to come back!

I am a part-time musician, currently playing in two bands as a rhythm/lead guitarist and lead singer. Being able to create and express yourself through the musical art form is, in my opinion one of the most therapeutic, empowering, and beautiful experiences in life. My passion for teaching stems from my own experience when starting to play the guitar. Unlike most musicians, I started relatively later in life in my mid 20's. I was eager to learn but struggled to find lessons and teachers that could make music theory and its application to the instrument make sense. After countless hours spent on YouTube, online memberships, and group lessons, I finally found an instructor who has been my mentor for the past 4 years, who was able to make music theory interesting and easily applicable. As a result I was able to build off this invaluable gift of knowledge, find my own style and sound, as well as a unique approach to sharing this wisdom with others.

I take a streamlined approach in ...

Andrew is great - really like his versatility in working with beginners or experts. He is able to accommodate and adjust based on what your goals are (i.e. he can start with basics of music to start at the very beginning or he can help you learn a song knowing the bare minimum. ) He's always on time and very flexible with schedules.

Online Guitar Teacher

In starting guitar, students will be first shown basic fundamentals of guitar such as how to properly tune their instrument with a tuner so they will always be able to hear their guitar correctly. Learning simple melodies of songs for the average beginner guitarist serves itself to be the first useful method of great fretboard familiarity and to acquire dexterity. Basic beginner chords are then taught to learn to play a few of their favorite songs in a simple format as well as basic power chords that are most commonly used in rock songs. As the student progresses to an intermediate level, songs that more closely relate to the students' original goals will be incorporated into lessons and the students' home practice routine (which serves a great purpose in order to develop the skills to attain their musical goals). At this level, students will also become introduced to ear training and learning more complex melodies by ear. At an advanced level, students can expect to learn far more ...

"Great feedback from the concert! Now Brandi's been working with me on basic classical - reading two or three lines at a time and going up and down the neck of the guitar with just the sheet music! No Tab Charts!! For me this has always been extremely hard, and probably the hardest musical skill for me overall is reading multiple lines simultaneously. Not great yet but - in quite a short time - have come Much farther than I was and am finally figuring out how to do it. Brandi has been super encouraging and patient and explains every step along the way when I get stuck - even multiple times if needed :)! Playing my normal rock or jazzy stuff with a lot more ease and "know-how" than before. She makes being pushed to your limits not only productive but also enjoyable."
