Singing is one of the most common forms of musical expression for most people. Singing in the shower, singing with the radio. Now is the time to enhance your skills with lessons. I have a degree in music education, with a concentration in voice, from St. Vincent College. I look forward to helping you expand your vocal skills, to enhance your singing voice, and to help you continue to enjoy singing.

About David B.

Hi, there! My name is David B. and I look forward to meeting you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1993 and have loved helping my students learn music in a way that not only increases their skill and knowledge, but also builds self esteem, allows for creative expression of themselves and creates lifelong music lovers. I went to St. Vincent College and earned a degree in music education, with a voice concentration and studies in piano and organ, in 1998. I'm a positive, helpful person and my teaching style is demanding yet patient. I strive to push students to be their very best, yet am patient while working to overcome the stumbling blocks we all encounter when learning. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Great class. Worked on fundamental vowel sounds, resonance placement, releasing tension, and smoothing out my passagio. I look forward to working more with David, especially in terms of smoothing out my passagio and understanding head voice more

Went to David about a year ago for audition help! I didn't have much piano experience, but the school was requiring violinists to perform a basic piano piece as well. He totally helped me become an expert in the single piece as well as teaching me other piano basics!

He's a very patient teacher and awesome personality to study with!

I was hesitant to start piano lessons but David has been amazing. He's an extremely friendly and patient teacher but the thing that has me rank him so highly is the fact that he always celebrated my successes and never berated for not getting as far as we hoped. For me that was important in an instructor. Also he is totally fine with me bringing in music to learn even if it isn't always the best stuff to learn from.
In short David is the kind of teacher that makes each lesson enjoyable and really helps you learn what's important to you. He has 35 years of experience so you can throw just about anything at him and he'll know what you're talking about. I can't recommend him enough if you are looking for a piano teacher in person.

David is an excellent teacher due to his cheerful attitude, his patience, and his ability to identify the issue that is hampering progress. I picked him specifically due to his years of experience and I can confirm that he is extremely knowledgeable in musical theory and good at explaining it as well. The only issue he might have is that he can be a bit talkative although personally I find it endearing. I Would highly recommend him to anyone that learns best through positive reinforcement.

David really worked with my son on his audition song as he is preparing for high school musical audition. Great instruction and constructive feedback. Obvious improvement after one 45 min lesson. David also gave helpful advice regarding auditions and what a director may be looking for.

What a wonderful and kind man. My son just had his first lesson with David and in 30 minutes is more confident and excited about preparing for his musical audition. I watched and saw improvement right away. Definitely recommend. Can't wait to hear my son sing after more time with David.

David took the time to talk to Angelina and got to know her. I thought he got a lot accomplished at the first lesson and we look forward to another one.
