Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are:

1. theory -- if you know your theory, you know the best way to express your idea without having to think about it
2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally

When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it

About David

I am a bass player first, not a guitarist who also teaches bass. Students will learn technique, theory and groove from a teacher who understands that as bass players, we are in a unique position. Since bass is both a harmony and rhythm instrument we have the opportunity to develop into leaders in

David was very patient and thorough with the introductory lesson. He corrected some basic habits my son had and had him sounding better in 10 minutes.

He also had practical recommendations for daily practice.

I highly recommend David.
Chris H.
David went over basic music theory and rhythm with me, and corrected some technique issues. He explained things clearly and when we put some of it into practice in the final minutes I saw instant results. Absolutely excited to do my homework and for my next lesson.
Robert F.
As a beginning, self-taught bass player of four months, I wanted to find a teacher who could analyze and critique my playing. I scheduled five lessons with David over a time period of three months. David was instrumental in analyzing and critiquing bad techniques and habits I acquired. He very thoroughly emphasized proper fretting technique and finger positioning; exercises were given that helped me obtain full tonal quality and efficient fretboard navigation skills. We also reviewed basic theory, scale modes, rhythmic weight, pentatonics and arpeggios; seminal knowledge for the beginner.

A technical type player, David has excellent playing skills as well as a comprehensive knowledge of theory and its practical application. He is a good listener and showed a genuine interest in helping me achieve my goals. I definitely can see an improvement in my playing skills....playing more confidently and efficiently.

Highly recommended.......

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I am both an experienced musician and educator. Being an initially self-taught musician since the age of 6, I have been playing the guitar for more than 15 years, the piano for 6, and I started teaching lessons in 2016. With experience teaching a wide age range of students, I have come to believe that it is vital for my students to learn music that is engaging and that helps them establish technical mastery of the instrument. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance and Music Education at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford CT, and am offering online lessons. With high quality gear and experience, I am able to offer an online experience that is more-than-comparable to in person lessons.

Great first lesson with Adam!
Jerry
excellent teacher/mentor.. My Son, has enjoyed his lessons.
Jo
Adam is helping me get back to playing guitar after some 40 years in which I did not play at all. With his help, I’m refreshing what I used to know (basic chords and notes on the staff), and extending my skills into new areas, like finger-picking, barre chords, and tablature-reading--plus learning a lot of new songs. He’s an excellent teacher.

Nick
Adam is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly a great teacher! He's patient and great at breaking down trickier ideas to be understood by someone with minimal theory knowledge like myself. And he's a great player to boot! I would gladly recommend Adam as an instructor to anyone looking for general music theory knowledge on the guitar all they way to more advanced level jazz techniques.

Thanks Adam!
Andy
Adam is a fantastic guitar teacher. He paced his lessons so that the amount of information I had to cover was reasonable for my busy schedule, and every week I came away feeling more and more confident in my playing!
Yami
Adam taught both my daughters. He is very knowledgeable and has a natural gift for teaching. The girls were engaged in the class and considerably improved in technique. He really is the best instructor ever!
