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
Hello, My name is Abigail. Im 11 years old and have been taking guitar lessons from Damien for about 2 years now. He has taught me how to read music. I have learned step by step, no rushing into music whatsoever. In the beginning of my lessons, Damien gave me a booklet/guitar notebook to record every lesson. My first lessons were basically getting to know music and my guitar. The next couple of lessons he began teaching me how to play simple songs like Twinkle-Twinkle, Happy Birthday and Mary Had a Little Lamb. Further on, Damien allowed me to choose a couple of my favorite songs, which he then taught me how to play. I definitely recommend any beginners to attend his lessons because you will not regret it.Jul 16, 2013
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
I have not had a lesson yet, but Damien was very responsive and helpful in getting me started. He has made me feel comfortable with my decision to work with him!Jan 15, 2018Verified
Drum Lessons (for children or teenagers)
I lived out of town and hired him for my nephew. He without hesitation helped with my PayPal and put together a gift certificate for me to present as the gift. He seemed kind and efficient.May 19, 2016Verified
- 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.).
