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! '
