David Joel Guitar Studio
I'm a former Berklee College of Music Instructor with my master's from New England Consrevatory and my bachelor's from Berklee. I've been a professional musician for 38 years, writing and playing all kinds of music - classical, rock, pop, world music, blues, jazz, jazz fusion, etc ; )
The approach I offer to guitar and music instruction is extremely methodical, thorough and fun! Teaching for almost 35 years, I've learned and observed the necessity for students to really learn their basics - reading sheet music, learning excellent technique, all essentail chord forms, music theory and its application, scales, Blues, soloing, solo guitar and playing tunes. I take my students step by step and piece by piece, as far as they would like to go and always make certain they understand and can apply what they learn.
I enjoy helping others really learn music in a way that they eventually "own" their own abilities and if they work hard enough, can begin to create their own sytle or "thumbprint" of playing. I like to help people take apart songs, solos and pieces and put them back together so they get a strong certainty as to how music works. It's pleasure to see my students grow and win know that I've helped them make their accomplishment to their next creative vista!
