David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song. David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

Greetings! I have over 30 years of performance and teaching experience. Many of my students have gone on to study at the college and university level, as well as have successful careers in music themselves including working in Nashville, New York, LA, and recording and touring. I teach beginners to advanced levels and take a very flexible approach depending on the needs and interests of the student. Whether you're just starting out and/or maybe just wanna learn how to play some of your favorite songs, or would like to take your playing to the next level with better rhythm and solo improvisation skills, or would like to achieve mastery of your instrument and virtuosity, I'm sure I can help you. Let's give it a shot! Hope to hear from you soon!
