I don't teach basketball really, but I can rebound and feed you accurate passes for you to practice your jumpers. I live downtown, but willing to travel. Hit me up!

Aaron was quite a good coach. I accomplished all my objectives. However, i live in Ventura and the lessons are in Los Angeles so the distance is too far for me. Therefore, i won't be signing up with "take lessons" for additional lessons.

Aaron is punctual, courteous, and incredibly knowledgeable. He directed lessons to address what I wanted to learn, but always made sure to bring practice materials and blank sheet music for the days I wanted to leave the curriculum in his hands.

His extensive education is crucial to his understanding of theory and composition, and with all his insight he was able to help me parse out my own pieces so that I could flesh out my own arrangements.

I not only received the guitar training I signed up for, but also invaluable teachings regarding gear, composition, theory, and performance. There was never a question I had that Aaron couldn't help me with.

He's an excellent teacher and an excellent person.

I played basketball competitively from 2007 to 2012 and recreational from 2012 to present. Through my years of playing I have found methods that work very well for players new to the game to increase their knowledge on the game as well as performance. I will urge you to push yourself in every aspect of my lessons and I look forward to working with you.

I am a former Pro basketball player that has trained every level possible with great improvements and results. I have trained pro players all the way down to beginners and my teaching and love for the game is infectious. If you love this game and really want to get to whatever next level you are trying to get to, give me the chance to share my vast knowledge with you. I live it and love it and I made a professional living doing it for 8 years.

Dave worked with both my boys for a while and was a pleasure. Obviously great with basketball skills, knowledge and getting that down to the players. But he also knows what buttons to push for each kid to help them push to their highest potential. As much a motivator as a coach. Whatever your kid takes away will be useful across all sports, and off the court too. Highly recommended.

Coach Burnett is an excellent coach. Not only did my son get better at basketball, but we use Coach Burnett's meditation technique for school also. As a result, my son's grades are up.

Basketball lessons with are unique because I focus on fundamentals. I am an encourager and not the type of coach who will motivate by yelling at student athletes. I teach the game in a manner in which can be easily learned and picked up. I know from past experience with other students that progress will come in a short time. Lessons with me are fun, encouraging and helpful.
