Introduction: I'm a composer/guitarist/singer-songwriter who is passionate about teaching. If you'd like to hear my music you can find it at davidtelson.com/music I'm adaptable and patient with whomever it is I am working with, and enjoy the challenges of finding the right approach for each person. A little about me: I was raised in Buenos Aires and New York City, which other than making me completely bilingual, also gave me a wide cultural and musical perspective. When not teaching, I write music for Theatre, Dance, Film and perform around the city. Teaching via zoom, which is a medium through which I teach effectively. .

David is a very dedicated teacher who is committed to the interests and desires of his students. He also brings in very interesting and complete exercises to work on the ideas and concepts that the students want to learn about. You can see the enthusiasm and passion that he has for music which is really nice. I highly recommend David’s lessons for both beginners and people who already play and want to deepen their knowledge of the guitar.

David is Awesome. He's super patient, encouraging and most of all he makes learning the guitar fun. I feel like I've really learned alot in the short time we've been working together. I couldn't recommend him more.

In a very short time, David has taught me so much! With his encouragement, patience and skill, he has re-inspired my guitar playing. Highly recommended!

David Telson's engagement with music and love for medium, is palpable when you are taking a class with him. He is constantly trying to devise new ways to reach his students. He also sees his students as individuals, with individual musical aspirations, talents, tastes, and motivations. When possible he curtails his lessons to reflect these idiosyncrasies. David Telson has a supportive and nurturing "bedside manner" when trying to teach you new combinations, chords or riffs. I definitely recommend him to all people interested in learning more about music.
