Get ready to become the violinist you were always meant to be!!

I started playing violin and guitar when i was 10 years old. I took private lessons in Guatemala, and played in the middle school orchestra. When I moved to the U.S. in 2005 I played in the Celebration High School orchestra and then moved to the Osceola School for the Arts orchestra. While at OCSA I was accepted into the All state Florida orchestra where we played the very difficult and complex piece: Planets by Gustav Holst. After high school i played in the Valencia College orchestra and took musicianship classes and then continued to play in Disney, in Latin jazz bands in the parks, hotels, private events, weddings and such. While at Valencia I participated in and won state string competitions. I've also played guitar in several soul/jazz bands. And also I've played flamenco Spanish guitar in several Spanish restaurants.

We'll sit down with our instruments have fun be relaxed and learn to play what you want on guitar, violin or bass.

I want to help you reach your goals and make you happy as a musician, so I am open to teach you anything no matter where your strength or weaknesses may fall.
Next, we will pick a fun area to work on, and a challenging area to conquer. For example: we will work on a fun song/groove-- then we will work on reading and/or technique.

David's a swell instructor, and works with you versus sticking to a set list of things to do. Looking forward to more lessons.
