    He is a great teacher. He is very patient with beginner students.

  • Mike T.

    Dave is a very accomplished guitar player and instructor. He is very easy going and supportive. I’ve taken music lessons from several other instructors but never took to playing until I started with Dave. Highly recommend him!

  • Nolan Steinhart

    I've been taking lessons with Dave for several years and I can say that I have really improved. whenever I struggle, I never sense that he is irritated or losing his patience. He always guides me to understanding and I would recommend him without hesitation. From basic chords to music theory, Dave's your Man.
