Overview

My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I like to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

Excellent first lesson. Before the first lesson, David listened to the areas I wanted to improve and then at this first lesson he proceeded to address those areas. I have had several years of lessons before with two other teachers. David will definitely help me improve quickly by building on my current skills. Great start!

FIRST LESSON was a great experience. Although my 12-year old son was hesitant about Ukulele lessons, he immediately felt relaxed with David. Of notable qualities...David was professional, very patient, redirected my son when he got off track, boosted his self-esteem with words of encouragement, and took the time to answer any questions my son had after the lesson was over. My son left excited and looks forward to his next lesson.

My daughter started lesson with David about a moth ago and she makes a lot of progress already :-) David is a very good teacher, he is patience and makes learning fun and interesting. He gives her an assignment then he will follow up in the next lesson. Seems that David makes my daughter to like and enjoy piano more than before. I strongly recommend David if you are looking for a good, fun, and reliable teacher!

David is a consummate professional. He has been giving our 10 year old daughter in-home lessons for a few months, and she is thriving under his tutelage. She has been making great progress with every lesson, thanks to his patience and excellent teaching skills. He is definitely great with teaching children. We highly recommend him!

David is very professional, polite and always on time, at the same time makes it fun for the kids so that they can enjoy music. My son felt piano is more for girls but after meeting with David and doing star wars music he is now interested in music lessons. My kids really enjoy their lessons with David.

I learned so much in the one lesson. I have homework which i like... i need the accountability. David was very kind, and patient and willing to answer my many questions. I felt relaxed and a little more confident that I will be able to learn Piano.
