"My son has been taking guitar classes with Dave since December 2018 and is now progressing really well, he looks forward to his lessons, and really enjoys them. Dave has a way of making learning to play a great experience, and is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, taking the time to make sure the session gives the student what they need and want. He is friendly, very professional and I would highly recommend him." - Jakki B
"David is great. I have had perhaps 8 lessons now. He is very flexible, explains concepts clearly and sets a pace that I find challenging but by no means impossible. Lessons are structured around one or more songs I am learning, with David drawing learning point out from the songs themselves. I remain motivated to continue my learning. I am most interested in learning blues guitar, but he is clearly capable of teaching everything from jazz to death metal. Absolutely top notch." - David R
"Dave is a brilliant piano teacher! He is is so passionate about music and is also a very patient, enthusiastic and understanding teacher. I would definitely recommend him to others." - Edel E
"Great person who’s very down to earth and very thorough in his teaching methods! It's uncommon to find a teacher who gives so much attention to the small details, only to build a good foundation for his students on the guitar. Moreover he’s extremely patient during his lessons and adjust himself to student’s pace. all and all, great guy and a highly skilled professional teacher!" - Robert T
