Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: *I do offer specials for buying in bulk that don’t fit into thumbtacks options so be sure to contact me if you’re interested in quality lessons at a great price! I've been playing for 25 years, teaching for nearly 20 and have a degree in Jazz from U-Mass Amherst. Notably, I've taught at the college level and for Jamplay. In general, I love to play and teach most genres, but I would say classical and metal are not my strong suit. And now that I've brought up strong suits, I would say that would be theory and fretboard knowledge is where I excel. It's my goal to get each student to understand as much as they can so that it's not just a song you're learning, but actually building towards a greater understanding of the instrument and music as a whole. That being said, I try to make it as fun as possible by teaching you stuff you want to learn infusing dumb humor to make it less painful. Along with lessons you buy, you'll also get... Your own google classroom so that all your assignments are conveniently found in one place including pdf attachments, audio/video links, and personal video aids including your achieved zoom lessons! Also, if you ever have any questions in between your last lesson and the next, I'm around to answer them by text/phone.

Guitar Lessons

I'm so pleased to be taking guitar lessons from Dave. I'm a (middle-aged!) beginner and he is very patient with me. He ensures I work on the fundamentals but always gives me something fun to tackle, too. I highly recommend Dave.

Guitar Lessons

If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.

Guitar Lessons

Dave is a good guitar teacher. Even though I have played guitar for over 40 years, there is so much still to learn (and unlearn:) Dave is helping create new habits and get rid of old, bad ones.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have 4 levels of packs offering 30, 45 and 60 minutes that range from $40-60 an hour depending on how many lessons you purchase.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Your first basic or premium pack will come with a free trial. If you're not convinced that I can improve your guitar game while simultaneously get you to enjoy yourself, you'll get your money back guaranteed. Each student gets their own google classroom so that all your assignments are conveniently found in one place including pdf attachments, audio/video links, and personal video aids including your achieved zoom lessons! Also, if you ever have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer them whenever. Rescheduling is flexible so long as you don't cancel the same day (I will charge unless you're sick or it's an emergency).

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a degree in Jazz performance and have been teaching for nearly 20 years at various places from house calls, to various music stores and schools and even as adjunct faculty at the community college level as well as for Jamplay.com.
