Testimonials:
I have increased my lesson frequency to two one-hour sessions per week simply because of my progress under David's direction. After only three months of weekly lessons, I can now read music and play while reading. David has introduced me to effective melodic soloing, has significantly improved my understanding of barre chords up and down the fretboard, and has convinced me to abandon "guitaristic" thinking in favor of really understanding the potential of the guitar beyond shape memorization. Mike L.


Just had my first lesson with David. Gave a wealth of info now it's up to me but with his approach I know it will be all good. Have had other teachers but David is not only an accomplished player he is also is able to instruct and teach. Will write again after a few more lessons.

Guitar
Professionalism
I have played for over 30 years. Three and half years ago I selected David after careful consideration of advanced instructors.
My experience with David has exceeded my expectations. My preliminary goals were met earlier than anticipated and David has been instrumental in reinforcing my knowledge and skills while leveraging my potential as a player. The ability to take lessons online through Skype has made this as convenient and comfortable while never compromising what occurs face to face. I highly recommend David F.
