Beginner guitar lessons

Lessons are focused on learning songs

When beginner guitar students first come in, the focus is strictly on the mechanics required to play songs they enjoy. As students become more comfortable with playing, I’ll introduce important music fundamentals in the process of learning.

Students will learn how to count rhythms, music theory (how music is put together), scale knowledge and many other things. Students learn best when they’re playing songs that they enjoy!

Lessons are both fun and enriching

Learning goes down much easier when we’re all having fun. I end each lesson on a positive note, so students leave feeling good about themselves, and ready to tackle the challenges ahead.  Students will be provided a clear lesson plan, complete with goals.  At the end of lesson, I give each student specific written instructions to get over the next hurdle in their guitar playing.

Lessons are held in my convenient Duluth studio

 

Traffic is crazy around here, I know. So if you’re in the Duluth area, I’m very easy to get to, and I don’t think anyone has ever gotten lost either. I’m near the intersection of Bunten Rd. and Duluth Hwy 120.

Lessons are custom designed for each student

 

There are no “cookie cutter” lessons here – boring! Every student has different interests and abilities. I design each lesson to meet a larger goal, based on each student’s input.

Music lessons have great non music benefits too

Dave is awesome at teaching my 10 year old daughter guitar.  He is very knowledgeable, skilled and just a pleasure to work with. He customizes the lesson to her so the lessons are interesting and exciting without overwhelming her. I highly recommend him.

Dave was recommended to us by a friend and our daughter has been studying the guitar with Dave for over a year now and is his biggest fan. At 8 yrs old she is already able to read some music and enjoys playing along to several of her favorite songs from the radio. Dave is a natural at keeping the right balance between making it fun and learning.
