My 16-year-old daughter has taken lessons from David for almost 2 years. She highly recommends him for his patience, and she really likes how he will play the music first if she's having difficulty, so she can see exactly how to place her fingers or correct what she is doing wrong. David is personable and very accommodating to fit your schedule.

David is a patient teacher and has been very accommodating to our needs. Each week we see improvement in our son's skills.

David's been teaching piano to our 10 year old son Harry for the past 3-4 years. He's done a great job keeping lessons fun, and keeping Harry engaged and making forward progress. Harry's progressed to the point where he's enjoying playing, and he practices without us asking him to. He can see for himself how much he's improved and it makes him want to keep going. All this is largely due to David's gifts as teacher. I should also mention that David has an outstanding musical knowledge and background -- he can teach rock, pop, jazz, or classical piano, and he plays jazz gigs professionally.
