About Dave

I have been playing guitar and writing songs for nearly 20 years. I have taught many friends and family members to play guitar and it is one of my favorite things to do! I began by learning in a formal environment and then moved on to teaching myself. I learned by playing my favorite songs and I believe this is the most fun and fulfilling way to become a great guitarist! After all, we do it for the love of music, right?

I believe I would be the right teacher for you because I believe in patience and going at your own pace. I do not teach using standard notation because to me, the best way to learn is by truly listening. We can move as slowly as needed and I will show you all of the notes, chords, tablature, tuning, keys, and methods you will need to continue your own musical education. I give you all of the necessary tools, but the most important element is dedication within yourself. This means practice, practice, practice! Once you have those tools at your disposal, you can anywhere you want! From composing your own songs to learning your favorites, it can all be at your fingertips. Literally.

If you're looking for a relaxed, fun way to learn guitar, please feel free to reach out to me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for 19 years and have taught about 10 of my friends and family members to play. I learned from 3 different instructors in the South Florida area and each taught me different styles of listening and applying what I have learned.

Songwriting

I have been writing songs for about 18 years. I have played in various bands and written over 200 of my own compositions. I have always been very fluent in my lyric writing due to my love for language and study of English in high school and college.
