“Dave excels at teaching many disciplines at a variety of levels. I studied both expert-level electric guitar and beginner classical guitar with Dave and saw results in both fields. A wonderful experience all around.” Ben Adrian - Line 6 Yamaha Guitar Group Los Angeles, CA
Dave is a fun and knowledgeable teacher of guitar, at any level of playing. He instructed a class of students with various proficiencies and always found a way of challenging the most advanced performers without overwhelming the beginners. That class was the best part of my week! John Osmand - Line 6 Yamaha Guitar Group Los Angeles, CA
"Dave knows how to make music simple and easily understood, while at the same time opening the door to all kinds of depth. It can only come from someone who first brings an attitude of true caring and kindness to each lesson, and then can back it up with the knowledge of an expert. In short, that’s Dave. I’m grateful for the richness that spending time with Dave has brought to my life, through better understanding music itself, as well as how to then go and create it. Glad I met you, Dave" Dave Crown Los Angeles,CA
"Physical distance ended my lessons with Dave way too prematurely. His knowledge, skill, dedication and passion for the instrument and its application and art is not matched by anyone I have studied with. Without fail our lessons surpassed expectation, and allotted time, simply because of who Dave is. I can’t wait to find a way back to his classroom."
Simon Jones - Line 6 Yamaha Guitar Group Los Angeles, CA
Dave takes a person-centered approach to teaching, which is essential for those who want to excel in the creative arts. He meets people where they are, and works alongside them as they progress towards their goals. He is gifted with not only the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to play and create music, but also the ability to connect with, and engage his students in the process of learning. He seems to be highly attuned to what motivates and inspires his students, in order to facilitate ongoing growth.
