My daughter has been taking guitar lessons from David for over 5 years and has had an incredible experience. He is gifted as a teacher and relates to his students as individuals. His musical talent is inspiring and he freely shares his passion with his students and it shows. David is prompt and professional. He is well connected with musicians and venues and is able to connect his students with performance opportunities. My daughters love of music has only grown and been nurtured since working with David. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher and musical mentor!Nov 23, 2014
Top-tier guitar lessons! If you're looking to improve your playing, David will help you get there. His approach to the instrument is logical, nonsensical and tangible to the point that you'll wish you started lessons sooner. Take it from a student who's now also a teacher: don't wait, make the call and start improving your playing today.Nov 23, 2014
David is a terrific teacher. I was an intermediate guitar player and took some lessons for a year. I got so much out if them. I'm currently playing with a working band. I world recommend David to anyone interested in improving their playing.Jun 13, 2014
I've taken private guitar lessons with David for over ten years. I've had a few different guitar instructors in my 20+ years of playing; among all my other teachers, David has been the most knowledgable, the most inspiring, and the most fun. I equate a lot of his instructions to taking a sip of water from a fire hydrant: you'll always come away having learned something real and practical. He's a great musician, an inspiring teacher, and a great friend. And I highly recommend him.Sep 9, 2013
Had one 8 week session of group guitar lessons. I found David to be very knowledgable and very friendly / outgoing and easy to work with. One improvement suggestion would be to do more actual student playing in class to be sure all the techniques are clear. We had great things to followup outside of class but did not do much to demonstrate them in class. I would definitely recommend these classes for anyone wanting to learn or improve with guitar.Sep 9, 2013
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Nothing complicated, really. For lessons, there is a flat monthly rate (private lessons are $80/month) and a flat 8-week session rate (group classes $120/session). For live & studio work, rates are variable. Depends on travel (if any), rehearsal requirements, length of performance and/or number of songs recorded. I can do a package rate or an hourly rate...just contact me with details of your project and we'll make it happen!
- What types of customers have you worked with?There is nothing common about my job (hahaha!). I teach both group lessons and private lessons, am currently recording electric & acoustic guitar tracks for a dance club project client in Denmark, and prepping new material for my duo, who will be playing several large blues festivals this summer. Those are my common gigs!
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Get all the information, then trust your instinct. Many of us have skills and some are better suited to YOUR goals than others. But a big part of meeting your goals is how well we all work together. That comes down to attitudes and relationships more than the technical aspects of what we do. If your instincts tell you to go with me, then do it. If they say go elsewhere, then that is the right choice...and if you need suggestions for other instructors, studio musicians, or live performance players, just ask. I'll happily provide you with as many names as needed.
