Introduction: My name is David. I've been teaching guitar and piano for over twenty years now. I'm classically trained in both with years spent studying with Douglas Niedt, Karen Kushner, and Christopher Madden, at the University of Missouri, Kansas City Conservatory. I've also studied jazz guitar with Jay EuDaly, Danny Embrey, and Stanton Kessler. I specialize in dealing with students for whom previous approaches to their instruments have yielded little to no progress but I also teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students of all ages and from all backgrounds. My approach is laid back but I stress excellence with everything I do. Students learn their instrument in the context of real music and real musical understanding, not exercises or rote repetition. I have two studio locations: my home studio in Raytown, MO fifteen minutes from anywhere in the KC metro area, and my away studio in Blue Springs off the I-70 Highway.

David is great! He’s super knowledgeable and was able to see what areas I needed help in pretty quickly. I’d been self-taught up to the point of the lesson. Online videos only get you so far though. David helped me with some necessary fundamentals that I had been lacking. Those simple adjustments have made a huge difference in my guitar journey. Thanks!

My first lesson taught me everything that a college level class could not. I actually felt very comfortable once I was shown how to properly hold it. David was very calm, and extremely patient with me. I like the fact that I can easily check my homework and log my practice time on the phone. I am going to really enjoy having him as my guitar teacher.

I am impressed by Eames’s unique way of teaching piano. His teaching method is thorough and instructive, which helps build a solid foundation for for his students to develop their interests and skills in playing piano. Eames is awesome. He has a great attitude and has been very patient in teaching me the piano.
