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
Okay so. . In the spring of 2012 after being convinced my son's interest in his electric guitar wasn't a passing phase I started looking into finding the best affordable guitar instruction in Lexington. That translated into a group guitar series of lessons for beginners. Logan's goal then was to be able to learn in order to accompany himself because he was primarily interested in voice. I was blown away at how quickly he was able to play and sing. A whole new world opened up and I think it has been life changing for him. David is incredibly talented as a musician and is just the coolest guy. He connects so easily with his students and I just don't think Logan would have wanted to continue lessons without it being someone like Dave. I believe he may have done 2 series of group lessons and then he has been with him in private lessons ever since. Best investment I have made. Playing and performing is something my Son will be able to enjoy and treasure all of his life. What a gift! Thank you David! I highly recommend him to everyone. We are lucky to have him. :-)Nov 23, 2014
I took guitar lessons from David for about 9 months beginning in 2013. My experience with him was absolutely wonderful. I appreciated his impeccable professionalism -- never once did he miss a lesson or was late. In terms of knowledge and ability, I've never personally known anyone more knowledgeable about the guitar than him nor that could play "better" in such a variety of styles and technique. He's a master at theory, and more importantly is able to relate that to his students in ways immediately useful to whatever their goals are. He clearly has decades of industry experience in a variety of performance and production roles as his many anecdotes attest and I feel this gives him a broad perspective about the music industry in general which helps him relate to such a diverse student body. On top of all that he's one of the most genuine, caring and nicest people I've ever known. When I came to him I had been playing casually for a couple years and was kind of in just old ruts. He really helped me figure out where I was and develop a path for development moving forward. Best money I ever spent on guitar, other than buying my guitar.Jun 19, 2014
- 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.
