Hi, I'm Dave. I enjoy helping students improve, learn new skills and make music! I've been teaching in  Aberdeenshire for over a decade, and combine enthusiasm for sharing knowledge and experience, with a genuine desire to help each student progress at their own pace.

My lessons focus on each student's favourite musical styles and goals - there is no one-size-fits-all approach - whether you're an aspiring young Ed Sheeran, a retired rocker, or a  budding bluesman or woman, I'm ready to help!   ​​​

"'I have had lessons with Dave all through secondary school and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute! Dave has taken my playing from that of a total beginner to achieving grade 8 with Merit! '    

 - Ross Mackay, Duris

 An experienced tutor, I  hold an 100% pass rate in all student grade exams,  My qualifications include a DipLCM (TD) London College of Music Teaching Diploma, and Rockschool Grade 8 with Distinction. I'm also a member of the Musician's Union, and an active performer, playing regularly with one of the most popular Scottish function bands The Limit.

"When I started lessons with Dave I could only roughly play a few chords. After taking  lessons with Dave I have now passed Grade 8 with Merit. I highly recommend Dave for his  guitar tuition, his lessons are both enjoyable and motivating."
