    Dave is a wonderful guitarist who possesses the ability to share his knowledge in a way that is supportive yet challenging while still keeping it fun. I’ve learned a tremendous amount since working with him

  • Jayaraman

    Dave has been our son’s guitar teacher for the past few years. Under his tutelage, our son has blossomed and developed into a very good musician. Dave’s demeanor, patience and positivity serve him well and make him an excellent instructor. He has really connected with our son and I would recommend him very highly.

  • Linda Acocella

    It is all about the students. David knows more about music than anyone else I know. My grandson is just thriving and really cares about David. Can't say enough great things about him.

  • Steve Foreman

    He's helped me learn music as a basis for guitar. Exactly what I asked. He always seems to fill in the blanks for me.

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

At each lesson students warm up on the instrument with scales and technique reminders. The rest of the lesson is spent working on pieces in progress. At each lesson my goal is to make muic education a fun and engaging experience for my students.
