  Hi I'm David and I am a very enthusiastic music teacher; composer, musician and I come to your home for lessons. My goal in life is to enrich people's lives with music and have fun. I have 16 years of extensive experience ( B.A. Music - Conservatory of Music - Concentration: Studio Composition / Master's in Education - M.A.T. Middle Childhood / Adolescence Education (Grades 5-12) 3.56 GPA. I teach guitar lessons with learners of all ages, especially beginners, children, teens and adults. I offer customized lessons and use a gentle teaching style and have vast music experience that will surely energize and nurture any guitar player. I create an organized custom guitar lesson workbook for each of my students. This way, my students have a weekly organized practice routine and they are not overwhelmed. I currently work in our local schools and for 2 years, from 2012 to 2014 I taught an enrichment after-school guitar and songwriting class. I created the curriculum and music workbook specifically for 6 and 7-year old children whom I taught at Pequenakonck Elementary School in North Salem, NY. In 1997 I won an award for the most improved studio composition student at Purchase College. For 12 years I have work in our Westchester schools as a teacher and have been fingerprinted and had a background check done so that I can work in the public school system in New York State.

Note that all students are different and come to me at various skill levels, from novice, to advanced beginner, to professional. The following method is an example of an absolute beginner's lesson: Lesson 1: Get to know the student, his life and musical goals. This allows us to connect to the music on a highly personal level. This makes the process much more fun and tailored to the students needs and interests. We do a little bit with the instrument in this first lesson, but it is more about getting comfortable. Lesson 2: We start working on some basic fundamentals - hand positions, breathing techniques, the history and function of the instrument, etc. Lesson 3 - X: The next lessons involve working through concepts, techniques, exercises, etudes, songs, and pieces depending on the instrument and interests of the students. I can give you valuable insight into the following things: Rhythm guitar: Concepts, rhythms, roles Bass - all skill levels: rhythm, groove, articulation, bass line construction, ctc Lead Guitar: Articulation, transcribing Music Theory: Chord structures, chord substitutions, general music theory Reading: Jazz charts, chord charts, sight reading and transcribing Creating a melody over a chord progression Creating a chord progression under a melody Forming chord progressions Improvisation and song learning techniques

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
