    I've had 2 lessons with David so far, and they've been great. He's been a very encouraging teacher, and he adapts his teaching to my learning progress. I'm planning to continue with the lessons and am excited to learn guitar!

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      - I work with customers to understand the exact skill level of the student during the first lesson. - During the first lesson, I also work to engage the student and give them a positive experience and provide information to get them started and excited about music lessons. - Lessons can be done online.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      - I teach a broad spectrum of ages, levels, and genres; brand new students who have never worked with a guitar, to experts who perform regularly. I enjoy working with students of all skill levels. - acoustic guitar or electric guitar. - I can teach students how to play different genres of music, including Rock, Blues, Flamenco, Jazz, Country and Folk.
    • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
      - If you're a beginner, think about what you are interested in learning and what kinds of goals you have in mind for your lessons. Be specific about the kinds of music you see yourself playing. - If you are advanced or a professional, you likely have goals in mind; maybe tweaking a technique or habit, bolstering your knowledge of theory, filling gaps in the map of the fretboard, or learning more esoteric concepts about music and performing in general.
