David is very thorough and has an excellent temperament for teaching guitar. Had a great lesson plan and obviously very prepared and knowledgeable. Plus, he’s easy to talk with. Would highly recommend.Feb 13, 2020Verified
I have lessons with a few different guitar teachers over the last few years and David has been one of the best ones I have ever had. His passion for music and learning is infectious. He is a true professional and I could not be more happy. David rocks!Dec 19, 2019Verified
David has been super responsive and fun to work with. We're trying to get a few more lessons on the calendar for the new year, but even in a short time he helped me explore some tangible ideas for regaining some of my old confidence on the guitar and better understanding music theory foundations. Highly recommend!Dec 18, 2019Verified
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!Jan 29, 2018Verified
Guitar Lessons (for children or teenagers)
David has been teaching our son for a while now and we can't imagine having a better teacher for him. Excellent teacher: skilled, patient, creative. Our son looks forward to his guitar lessons each week and he wouldn't have come this far without David.Jun 20, 2017Verified
- 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.
