David is a multi-instrumentalist, music producer, mix engineer, and music instructor who works with artists and students at varying levels developing their skills, creativity, and music. After nearly 2 decades of studio work and live performance gigs, David has an understanding of the skillset and mindset necessary to deliver on a professional level. In 2015, David was nominated for a Pensado Award for "Most Unique Project Studio" and followed that up in 2016 sharing the stage with Jimmy Eat World and Neon Trees. “Everyone learns differently, so instead of taking a rigid approach to teaching I like to adapt to the student’s needs, whether it be learning by ear or site-reading, playing standards or writing their own originals. Learning and playing music is challenging, as is anything worth doing, but it can and should also be fun. I aim to make it both challenging and fun at the same time.”

great experience for my daughter. David was very knowledgeable and supportive! Highly recommend
I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!
David is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist and producer. I was introduced when he recorded an EP for my band and since then, we've spent many an evening talking about performing, recording, teaching and making music. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable about his craft. I always learn something new, interesting and immediately applicable to my playing when I work with him. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of his students and they have always been exceptionally professional and prepared. I highly recommend David for lessons in whatever discipline you request - the crossover knowledge from all of his experiences will be invaluable to you.
