About Alec D.
I am a lifelong musician, songwriter and music producer and I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my experience with you!!! I am excited to work with you to learn the songs that YOU love, and learn how to develop your own style in the process.
I specialize in guitar improvisation, and I am well-versed in contemporary music (r&b, pop, hip-hop, alternative/indie, you name it), blues and rock. I have amassed over 500,000 YouTube views since I started posting videos of myself playing guitar at the age of 13. I write songs and produce my own original music, and I am lead guitarist for a local band called Will & the Foxhounds.
I will not teach you complex music theory, and I will not teach you to read classical sheet music. I WILL use simple chord sheets and tablature to teach you your favorite songs, and I WILL give you the confidence and knowledge to become a confident guitarist and lay the foundation for a lifetime of passionate musicianship!
