For Those About To Rock Academy and Long Live Rock Academy sessions are held here as well as private lessons and full service audio production.since I have personally done over 5000 shows , recorded 100’s of albums and taught music for 30 years it’s obvious that music is my life. Experience is the best teacher!!
!Everything! I truly love playing,writing,recording, and teaching music. The fact that I get paid for doing this is a total blessing that I thank God for everyday. The friendships made are priceless
David is a fun person. I have only been at his studio twice to date but I can sense he has a method to teach me guitar. He makes me feel comfortable.
He makes learning fun and enjoyable, he’s very talented would definitely recommend!
It's important to David that he has rapport with his students and so he puts in the effort to make sure everyone feels comfortable and included. I have taken lessons with David individually and in a group setting. I have also observed him with kids. He is a genuine human being, which makes learning music a rich experience. On the technical side, David has been in the music business for decades and is an icon in the Pittsburgh area. He is by far one of the best guitarists in Western Pennsylvania. His teaching style is loose and easy and on point.
Talented musician, instructor, songwriter and engineer. Good sense of humor and patient. Lots of experience with an excellent reputation.
5000 + performances and past employment with Lincoln Park, Pa Cyber, and Pitt University
First and foremost I find out what the student listens to and likes. Guitar has a physical curve in the beginning and it’s easy to get frustrated amd even quit. So I find that when a student learns a song that he or she really likes it makes it a lot easier to get past a little pain and frustration !! Small hurdles and victories keep the guitar played often.
