About this pro

Do you desire a breakthrough in your guitar playing? Are you frustrated with online lessons, videos, DVD's etc that leave you more confused and asking more questions? YOU need a breakthrough NOW. I specialize in getting frustrated guitarists to the next level and I want to help you.

I have 30 years experience teaching and have taught over 2,000 students through my classes at Fresno City College. I now offer lessons and classes in the Clovis area. I have earned B.M. and M.A. degrees in guitar performance and have studied with many of the worlds greatest guitarists who often give master classes in my studio.  

What is most important is that you get results. My passion is helping people just like you who are frustrated and want to progress and move forward to the next level and beyond in the shortest time possible. If that is you, let's get started today.

When students progress and breakthrough to the next level in their musical journey. When you take lessons with me you will also progress and have fun playing guitar.

  • Leni Reeves

    A superb teacher, innovative and analytical as well as musical.

  • Paul McGuffin

    I like that Dave helped me overcome some of my struggles with playing chords. I can now play a complete song from beginning to end. We learned Tequila Sunrise which was one of my goals to play for my wife. At 73 I never thought I'd be able to do it.

  • Scott Griffith

    David is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. He always has a solution for me to overcome difficult areas in my guitar playing. His teaching has made me a more confident and better guitarist.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing varies upon the program the student is enrolled in. Details are discussed at FREE introductory session to determine if we are a good student and teacher fit.

My lessons are NOT for:

  • Price shoppers on a tight budget.
  • People who only want lessons for 1-2 months.
  • People who are not able to practice at least 30 minutes per day.
  • People who think they can get results without putting in time and effort.

 My lessons are PERFECT for:

  • People who believe that "you get what you pay for."
  • People who intend to take lessons with a good teacher for at least 1 year.
  • People who are able to practice 30 minutes per day.
  • People who understand that it takes time, effort and patience to get results.
