Overview:
I believe that music can truly heal the soul. Growing up I come from a family that loves music, and I embraced it cherish it as a pure element. I am studying for my Master's in Education and have a background teaching and coaching sports, as well as giving music lessons. I am finger-printed backgrounded checked to educate pre-school age and K-12 children and have a long history doing so. I have worked professionally with children in every age group including age 2, and adults of elderly age. I also have worked with those with ADHD, post stroke, type 1 diabetes ect so I am very comfortable and sympathetic to adjustments whenever necessary. I'm a yoga instructor, and have a very easy going vibe, though I am surprisingly organized and believe in always finding creative techniques to surpass our goals sooner than thought possible. I know whatever your goals are we can work to get you there, and I will always be here for support during and after private lessons with me.
EXPERIENCE
I am extremely passionate about music and teaching. I have been performing all my life as a professional actor and musician in singing, and have since fallen head over hills in love with guitar which lead my to taking private lessons studying classical and jazz, as well as rock, blues, funk, pop, folk, bluegrass, ect. I am very comfortable adjusting to the styles and needs of my students, and look forward for the privledge to contribute to their musical journey in any way possible. I also took classical and jazz piano in which I can teach beginners the basics of piano and structure. Finally, I am a more gifted singer than guitarist so I am fully capable of teaching voice lessons, having sung on television and national landmarks growing up. I will teach you how to care for your instrument, including voice, and how to use it safely, while improving everyday.
METHODS USED
I have a bachelors degree in psychology so I am very sensitive to adapting to the feel of my students. I want to hear your goals, and know what your expectations are. We are a team, and together we will help you reach where you want to go and have a fun time doing so. I am very creative and open for ideas. Also I am sensitive to shyness, something I struggled with in the past myself, so we will work together to find ways to tackle these cool challenges and help you grow as an artist. I'm looking forward to working with you.
LESSON STYLE
From my private lessons with Jamie Valentino, who teaches at the University of Redlands and holds a Doctrine in Classical and Jazz guitar, I've learned a number of techniques for every style. We will go over timing, and strumming patterns, as well as knowing the circle of fifths, harmony, scales, finger technique warm ups for both hands, and pick control using a number of exciting songs as a supplement so we can play and practice at the same time. I like to take music you like and find a way to incorportae a skill you should be learning into the guitar work, so you can play at home or with friends while growing in skill. This will be a great way to stay accountable and have fun at the same time. I will teach you how to play lead, and rhythm guitar at the same time, and as the sole guitarist if you had to play both. I also have taken private drum and piano lessons and will have no issues teaching beginners great ways to play any song through the methods I learned from those instruments as well as the beautiful voice instrument, where I shine the most as an instructor and performer. I also am very adapt at singing while playing guitar, piano, or even rapping while playing; we will work on you becoming a master of rhythm and timing. I believe music is art, and I know we can together help you express yourself in beautiful artistic ways.

David is amazing. My son has had many coaches and several music teachers. David is his first voice teacher. David stands out. He puts in the extra time and effort to demonstrate he cares about his students as people and as musicians. He has a great heart, enjoyable personality, and is an excellent voice teacher. I am grateful my son has the opportunity to study with him each week. We recommend him highly!

David has exceeded our expectations in every way. He is fantastic with our son! He is very encouraging and I have seen our son's confidence grow in just the first month of taking lessons. He, also, adds interesting challenges to keep our son growing and learning. He's great with teens and we can not be happier with this instructor!
