Greetings, My name is David and I love to play and teach pool and do both very well. I only teach in person because I believe it to be the best way, plus I get to play too. A big part of your learning process is not just learning how to make shots but becoming a shape player. A shape player is one who thinks not only at the shot at hand, but what’s next and how to hit the one at hand to get near that place you need to be to make the following ball and so forth to the money ball. To become a shape player, you must understand spin and speed. That is why I use a measles cue ball, it clearly shows the spin, and speed so that you can more easily see why we get the desired result. Have been the coach on numerous winning APA and NAPA teams over the last 15 years. Just a few of the things you will learn are proper bridge, how to take care of the cue ball and avoid scratches, getting shape, playing safety, etiquette, cue maintenance, jump and massee shots, how to plan your table run, and adjust when things go awry. I live in a high-rise apartment near South Coast Plaza and we have an 8-foot table here which is where I prefer to teach, it’s a quiet atmosphere where we can focus without the noise and distractions of a bar. If you want your lessons somewhere else, we can discuss them.
About David D.

I have been playing near 50 years now and have achieved a skill level 7 in the APA and won just about everything. Helped take my team to the nationals in Las Vegas and won there. Won the Top Shooter tournament in APA High Tier bracket in 8 ball on a Saturday and came back and won it in 9 ball on Sunday. If check out photos and click on images you will see me holding the cash and cue cases I won, in both images the guy on my left is the 2nd place finisher, he is holding cash but not a case. Have been the coach on numerous winning APA and NAPA teams over the last 15 years.

David is a great instructor. During our first lesson, he explained the basic of pool and 9ball. He teaches shape and provide drills to improve on your game. He even offered to go with me to get my first beginner's cue stick! Great experience and can't wait for the 2nd and 3rd lesson!

David is an excellent instructor who not only improved my basic skills but showed me how to think my way through shot selection. Enjoyed my first lesson and will be back for more
