This Saturday was only my second lesson with David, but I can already tell that I am in for a very big positive and rewarding change in my voice and how I conduct myself when Im singing in front of a crowd. Been singing for a while now since high school, been singing for the past few years at our church, but never had a one-on-one vocal coach, always with a group with my music teachers in middle and high-schools. Wow! with just 2 lessons with David, I have heard and learned so much that I never even knew before. He was able to spot my weaknesses right away and shown me why I have difficulties singing some of the notes things that no one had ever explained to me, he just did. David knows his stuff whatever style of singing or type of songs you want to do, he can help you a great deal to improve or perfect your skills. He is super nice and made me feel so comfortable instantly from our very first meeting. If you are looking for an experienced, with so much expertise in this field, I highly recommend David.Dec 8, 2014Verified
I have gone through vocal coaches Like toilet paper, due to the fact they really don't have the proper education and music background. David does not stick to one style of singing and that's all you learn. He is very diversified with many singing styles. Example you want to sing pop music. He will teach you all the techniques of different styles of singing to help you be a well rounded singer. Yes he will let you sing what you want, but his vocal warm up techniques are very unique and effective. I have had 4 lessons so far and from the 1st lesson to my most recent, my singing is like day and night. He is the best, most knowledgeable coach I have ever had. This review is coming from an advanced singer, so I know what I'm talking about!Apr 7, 2014Verified
Singing Lessons (for adults)
I had no prior singing experience before meeting David. I couldn't even remotely find the pitch or key that was being played in a song with my voice when trying to match it. After two months of one on ones for an hour every week, I've seen massive gains and improvements. Not just in my confidence, but in my ability to match pitch, widen my range and become a more flexible singer overall. A big part of success is practicing on your own after the lessons, however, David really does do a great job of zoning in on your weaknesses and helping you through them step by step. I highly recommend him for any singing lessons you're interested in pursuing. I know I'll continue to go to him for all of my vocal needs. Keep up the great work David! -TNov 4, 2015Verified
David is probably one of the best vocal coach in Sacramento. He's been working with my sister for a while and I just recently started. He's great at making you feel comfortable singing. David definitely makes the singing lessons a lot of fun. I definitely suggest making an appointment with him.Aug 30, 2013
David is AMAZING!! I have worked with a few really great vocal coaches over the last year and a half and I have to say that David really brings out something in me that I didn't know I had. I started out very shy and from my first lesson with him he had me doing things I had never done before and more importantly feeling more confident about myself and my voice. You can tell he cares about his students on so many levels and truly gives everything he has to help you get better. He makes me feel so comfortable even when I am uncomfortable, and that was exactly what I needed! ;) In a very short amount of time, I have gone from being so embarrassed to sing in front of anyone I would only practice in my car, to singing and dancing on stage in front of 100+ people. I would recommend David to anybody from a shy beginner like me to the most experienced singer...this guy definitely knows what he is talking about! I am blessed to have found him.May 6, 2013
