Whether you are a complete beginner or highly advanced, I can help you get to the next level and beyond. My time tested and success proven curriculum was specifically designed to achieve maximum progress in the shortest amount of time possible. I fully understand that each and every student is unique and has different musical goals and dreams. For this reason our curriculum is always flexible and can be supplemented with customized instruction to meet the needs of the individual student.

I can teach you acoustic guitar and/or electric guitar. Choose from... Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, Metal, Country, Folk, Bluegrass, Funk, R&B and more.

I can help you improve in many areas such as guitar fundamentals, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, scales and modes, technique, music theory, chords, soloing and improvisation, flatpicking, fingerpicking, legato, ear training, music transcription, chord melody, sight reading, developing effective practice strategies, etc.

I consider teaching to be one of life’s highest callings and am extremely grateful to have made my living all of these years as a guitar instructor. I am a firm believer that helping others works best through a positive attitude and have witnessed firsthand that anybody can be a great guitar player with patience, practice, and proper guidance.

About Dave T.

I am obsessed with helping YOU become a better guitar player. I started teaching after graduating from The Atlanta Institute Of Music in 1990. I've been a full time musician and guitar instructor since 1995. I have literally helped thousands of musicians become better guitarists.

My approach works because I customize my lessons to meet the needs and goals of the individual student. I enjoy teaching guitar players of all skill levels from beginner to advanced and also teach a wide variety of musical styles. Many of my students just play for fun while others have gone on to gain entrance into top music schools and/or become professional musicians. No matter what category you fall into, I am here to help you reach your musical goals and to make your learning experience a positive one.
