About David

I have been playing and teaching guitar for most of my adult life. Few things are as engaging or as satisfying for me, whether the material is very simple or very challenging. I hope that you will feel the same way, and my aim is to help.

I started off learning the usual battery of classic rock hits from local guitar hero Jon Hathaway. While studying music in college, I cultivated a love for jazz and improvised music that has stayed with me to this day.
