It has been my dream since I was a kid to become a great guitarist, and looking back on my learning experience with Dave, I realize that I can get there with more practice. I would like to say that Dave is a great instructor and I’d recommend him to anyone!” -Ben L. age 14

Professionally I am incredibly goal oriented in regards to the way my students progress. I feel my job duties are to make them feel comfortable, appreciated, valued, and important. I feel my time is precious, and I hope you feel the same.
