About this pro

My name is David Marsh and I have been providing comprehensive music instruction since 2010. I focus mainly on organ and piano, but also have a passion for teaching composition and arranging.

When I am not teaching, I can be found working my position as the Executive Assistant and Product Specialist for the Los Angeles Organ Company or serving as the President of the Orange County Theater Organ Society.

I am an active musician, performing frequently across the United States on both Piano and Organ. I provide lessons on industry-leading organs and pianos in my home. Studying with me provides a strong foundation in music theory and performance- but also enables my students to be successful in the current music industry, should they decide to pursue a career in music.

I love having the opportunity to be involved in the education and improvement of others with music. Music is an essential part of my life, and I am delighted to help others begin or continue their journey with music.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

All of my lessons are highly customized to the needs of the individual student. I NEVER use the same methods for everyone; this is unprofessional and typically never works. When I first meet the student, we will spend some time determining what their learning style is, what they like in music, what they want to achieve with lessons, and ultimately what their end-goal with music is. The answers to all of these questions help me develop a process that is made just for the student, just as a tailored suit is made just for the customer who purchased it. 


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

I offer three (3) different lengths of time for lessons. Beginning young children should start out at the 30-minute lesson time.

30 Minutes: $45

45 Minutes: $55

60 Minutes: $60

Lessons are billed monthly, and payment is for TIME - NOT for actual lessons attended. By hiring me, you are reserving a specific amount of my time each week. Not showing up for a lesson would be the equivalent of me NOT having a DIFFERENT student at that time. Because of this, I bill for booked time, not lessons attended. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with a wide variety of students from many demographics and age groups. My youngest student was 4 years old, while my oldest was 83.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Always make sure that you like the teacher. NEVER take lessons from someone you do not LIKE. If you take lessons from someone who you don't like, you will most likely not learn anything.
