I’ve only spoken to Damian on the phone and conversed via thumbtack about guitar lessons but I wanted to express just how knowledgeable and professional he was with me. He always responded promptly to all my calls and messages. I can’t wait to start working with him.Jan 4, 2019Verified
My family feels very fortunate to be musically connected with Mr. Damien Smith My son, Corey, has been taking guitar lessons from him for the last two years and he has really made major strides as a young musician. The skills, knowledge, support and flexibility that Damien provides has kept my son excited and dedicated to learn more! Not to mention that he also has a refurbished home studio with an array of tech equipment and musical instruments to record your music - which is a bonus! We highly recommend him as an instructor! He's one very cool, nice guy!May 4, 2013
Damien has been a great teacher. I've taken guitar lessons from him for about 6 years. It's nice to know that i have a teacher who is passionate about what he's doing and will always explain everything in an understanding way. He's encouraged me in my song writing and has developed and produce one of my own songs. I highly recommend him for your teacher!Apr 29, 2013
My son has been taking drum lessons from Damien for the past 8 years now. Damien plays many instruments including drums, guitar, and bass. He is always a professional. He walks the students out after each lesson to say a quick hello to the parent. He is always well dressed and treats each lesson as important. He is an extremely talented musician and I'm so happy we found him. My son still looks forward to seeing him each week after all these years, and really has become a great drummer under Damien's instruction.May 2, 2013
Guitar lessons. Music theory. Song transcriptions. A knowledgable and easy going guy who obviously loves what he does. Very patient, he will teach at your pace. He customizes your lessons to suit you as an individual. I leave excited to go home and practice what I have learned. You can't go wrong.May 29, 2013
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always trying to expand my pallet. I am keenly aware that there is always someone out there who plays better than I do, so I am still taking lessons from great musicians. I also try to find new and challenging situations either in the recording studio or live performances.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have been playing music since childhood and can not imagine a more fulfilling profession.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I take examples of songs that my students love and transcribe them. As I do this, I explain all of the theory that is required in order to play that song (scales, chords, rudiments, reading, beats, etc.).
