Very quickly assessed my skill level and began putting together a curriculum tailored to my skill level. I can't wait until our next lesson!

Wow! I adore Keith. He’s so patient & knowledgeable. The lessons are constructed according to the students pace. I’ve learned more in just 2 lessons with him than I did with weeks of online courses. Would definitely recommend!

I didn’t have any musical background but always wanted to try. And I got so lucky to met Keith. He is very encouraging and scrupulous teacher. We have piano and singing lessons, he offers me to practice songs and melodies that I like but makes sure that I get all the basics right. And the best part is that he loves playing and teaching music, which creates a great atmosphere in the class

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I have had the great opportunity to teach all levels for over 15 years in the United Kingdom, South Africa and the USA. I have held positions as guitar teacher at many Colleges, Universities and Companies around the UK and USA. I have worked in the distant learning department at the Manhattan School of Music, teaching students around the country from their studio base. With many of my students going onto music schools such as The New School, NYC, Queens College, and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire I believe that I have a wide range of experience with all age ranges from beginners to beyond advanced. I focus on making the lessons as fun and engaging as possible whilst keeping on track to certain goals set by myself and the student throughout the year.

I played music professionally for many years, both solo and in a variety of bands. I did not enjoy performing. I am a songwriter and my studio is where I feel most comfortable. I teach finger-style acoustic guitar as my default but enjoy other styles as well. Regardless of style, it will always be combined with a strong understanding of music theory and guitar basics. It doesn't matter If you are interested in more advanced topics (i.e. songwriting, recording, etc.) or are a complete beginner. I am happy to work with all levels. Let's get started. You can do this!

About Chuck

I've been writing and recording music my whole life. Aside from motorcycle riding, it's my true love.

"David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him."

In short order Chris has me in a new place. Understanding music theory, especially related to the guitar, has been presented in a way that works. And it's fun!"
