About David A.

As a pianist, I have an eclectic stylistic range spanning classical, rock, folk, and everything in between. I've played on cruise ships, in jazz, wedding, noise, and funk bands, in cabarets and musicals, on soul and folk records, and in just about every kind of situation that involves keys.

As a teacher, this diversity of styles and experience translates into an unique approach keyed to each student's evolving interests. In other words, lessons should never get boring! There's never just one way to move forward. Together, we'll forge a path to get you to the next level of musicianship!

David teaches lessons to me and to my six-year-old son. He has made our piano experience relaxed and fun which had changed the trajectory of my son's attitude toward the piano. He has an ability to gauge what an individual wants out of the experience and enthusiastically be there to make sure that individual gets the most out of it.
