Introduction: I have been teaching and performing for over thirty years and I believe anyone can learn to play the guitar or bass and play it well. Talent and experience matter less than the desire and commitment to learn, and there are always multiple paths to mastery. I offer both online lessons and in person lesson at my home studio at reasonable rates. The first lesson is free of charge so that you can try it out. No matter what you wish to achieve on the guitar or bass, I can help you get there!

Guitar Lessons

I am so happy I found Dave. My son and I are autistic. We can’t keep up with shit but Dave has been so patient with us and my son really enjoys his lessons. I hope that they can develop a bond and I hope that this can be therapy for my son.

Dave is really great at pinpointing what you need work on and knows how to help you progress! Especially in this covid hands off world Dave grants you personal, professional lessons online.

I have been taking lessons from Dave for 3 years! I’ve learned so much, he can teach many genres and skill levels! As hard headed as I am, I am amazed at my progress now!

I've been taking guitar lessons from Dave for more than a year and a half, both in person and now online. Dave is a great teacher, very thorough, professional, and encouraging. He has me doing things on a guitar that I never thought I could do -- knowing how to form chords up and down the neck without constantly referencing a chord book; reading music; trying my hand at chord melodies; learning different scale and arpeggio forms; basic improvising over some old jazz standards; and lately learning the solo of my wife's favorite rock song. Dave will challenge you. He doesn't let you make mistakes, but he's never given up on me even on my worst days. Whatever your musical interest is, I'm certain that Dave can get you there. Oh, and he's a heck of a nice guy.

After being away from guitar for 25 years I really needed to find an instructor that could work with me. Within 10 minutes of our first conversation I knew Dave was that person. Dave was able to take my input and conduct remote lessons that are already producing results after just a few weeks. Dave is patient and targeted in his instruction. He is excellent at explaining and inspiring rather than demanding. The remote lessons using Zoom have been great during the lockdown. I have now switched to in-person lessons since Dave took the time to construct a "covid proof" studio. That's right, the studio contains a room for the student and a room for the instructor, separated by plexiglass. I wish I had found Dave 10 or 20 years ago, lol! Michael E.
