    David is one of the most knowledgeable and skilled guitarists I’ve met. He is well versed in different styles of music and also knowledgeable in music theory. He is very patient with his students and works at their pace, helping them understand what they’re playing.

    Dave has an easy going manner and let’s you learn vs just purely instructing you in a regimented way.

  • Ned Elzo

    I have been playing the guitar for over 50 years. The last 6 years I have learned more than the previous time. Whenever I ask about a song, he just starts showing me the way that the artist is playing it. It can be rock, jazz, country, fusion, no matter what he understands and has me playing it in a very short time. Patient teacher.
