As highly as Dave's previous reviews spoke of him, he still managed to exceed any expectations I had. He was calm, reassuring, and it was immediately apparent just how comfortable he is teaching small children. Dave managed to hold the attention of my 5 year old for the entire lesson, and left my son excited about learning and confident that he can do it! I feel very fortunate to have found such a great teacher for my child.

Very nice professional. The kids really felt comfortable with him and they said it was easy to learn with him. The kids are looking forward to our next sessions

Dave is really a great instructor. Our son Thomas (6yo) loves his lessons. Dave is calm, nice and explains very well. He is always positive and teaches fun things and songs (like Mario Bros that Thomas loves). I highly recommend David. He is great.

We feel very lucky finding a teacher like Dave. He teaches my 11 yrs old Bass at our home. We trust him completely with our child, he's always pleasant, smiles and on-time. He's knowledgeable in his trade and our son likes working with him. We would and will recommend him to anyone that's looking for a music teacher.

dave is amazing! he teaches electric guitar to our boys - ages 6 and 9. he is patient (i mean really patient) and so kind. he also understood immediately how different they are (our youngest wants to rock out and our oldest likes the Beatles); and so he took two different approaches, which have really paid off. would recommend him 100%

Boy let me tell you, this guy Dave knows how to play!! I came late for the first lesson but I'll be take considerable measures to never do that again. This guy is very knowledgeable, very passionate and very very respectful of what you know, or in my case don't know. The house was a little on the small side but it's definitely enough for your lesions, I highly highly recommend that you give this man a try. Like now. Can't wait for new lesson!!
