Old School Pizza Melbourne Florida

I host an Open Mic every Wednesday evening from 7:30PM to 10:30 PM with fellow local musician Chuck Van Riper.
This experience in music enhances my teaching skills to another level, allowing my students to perform live in front of an audience they do not know. It give the student an opportunity to demonstrate there musical talents and receive positive feedback. Several of my students have done this and had wished they had done it sooner. It provides a very rewarding feeling of accomplishment to the performing student.

· Bass Guitar · In home Uncle Dave T. Taught me how to play bass guitar as well as piano when I had no prior musical background. He is currently helping me with acoustic guitar and I hope to play as well as he does one day! He is patient, kind, and elaborate when he teaches. Highly recommended for anyone at any age with any skill level!

· Bass Guitar · In studio Dave is very friendly. He is passionate about his music. He adapts the lessons to the students needs and can record the lesson. I have taken lessons for 3 years now, and I am now playing bass guitar in my high school jazz band. He is a wonderful teacher!

· Accompaniment · Dave is a very talented and personable teacher. He came into my home to record my 98 year old mother playing her harmonica. He played his guitar and sang along with her as she proudly played the harmonica! It is an evening I will never forget. He made my mom so happy, and the rest of the family has her music to remember for always. Thanks, Dave for being a part of a very happy time!!
