"I studied with David for about 8 months. Although proficient on keyboards, a singer and songwriter; I had never learned the guitar. I knew a lot about the guitar by osmosis, but technically was green. David let me look at the guitar in a whole new way, using infinite variations on basic chords, showed me how to move and follow vocal melodies and challenged me to SEE what I was playing. All at the speed of thought."

HERE'S WHAT ONE OF MY STUDENTS OF 2 YEARS RECENTLY HAD TO SAY: "David is very effective in recognizing the current performance level of the student and crafting lesson content that builds on that level. He is focused on building a solid base of playing technique that can be applied to any style or genre of music the student is interested in playing. He emphasizes precise musicianship thru skills practices that incorporate aids such as the metronome, Band-in-Box . and demonstration. He reinforces reading skills in every lesson using a variety of songs of differing styles and complexities. His teaching philosophy includes an appropriate amount of discipline and repetition in completing the exercises and drills that serve the learning experience well. Working with David will enhance the skill and musical enjoyment of students of all levels."
