We've been learning piano with David for over 6 months now. I have 6 year old twins. David is patient and explains piano so they understand. He uses appropriate materials for the age and challenges them. He takes his time and does not rush them. We were using a different teacher for a year before David, and it wasn't working out - they girls just weren't picking it up. David quickly salvaged the girls music relationship and we are back on track. They are now learning duets. I'm thrilled and would highly recommend.Feb 1, 2020

To be honest our son hates to learn. But David is amazing. With such a stubborn child he still gets the lessons in and our little musician is progressing, and thriving. He is patient and knows how far to push to get the lessons accomplished. I know others would have given up on our stubborn child, not David! I could not ask for anything better!!!Dec 29, 2019

We were searching for a teacher who did not treat music as a business or "hustle." David is an excellent teacher who is passionate about music and cares deeply about his students. He is not watching the clock. He is more interested in the student learning the concept and stresses fundamentals. If the class runs over the allotted time, he continues and does not charge any more. Instead, his priority is the student learns. David knows theory and teaching fundamentals. My kids enjoyed their time with him and we highly recommend him as a teacher. We went to the piano academies and a few others and never found a satisfactory teacher. However, David was the best and my kids were much better for the experience.Oct 6, 2015

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?COLLEGE EDUCATION: Piano Teaching Certificate (1998), Fullerton College, including private piano instruction from my professors. Piano (private) and music studies, California State University, Chico. Ongoing continuing education and training to further develop my playing, repertoire, ability to analyze music (music theory), and knowledge of pedagogy, including the latest findings. I also read widely for broader knowledge and a deeper perception of the great pianists and composers, past and present; music history; and the other arts, such as poetry, painting, and dance.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My father got me started on piano when I was six, so when I became knowledgeable and skillful enough to teach as well, it was natural to follow in his footsteps.
