Dave gained his Music Degree from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA, enabling him to deliver first class lessons that cover a wide range of different aspects of learning the guitar.
Dave regularly teaches guitar in Middlesbrough's local primary and secondary schools, as well as after-school clubs, youth groups and of course his own private music lessons.
He holds an Enhanced CRB check issued by Stockton Borough Council. Students can choose to enter graded examinations, where Dave has a 100% pass rate, or simply learn for fun. Each of his guitar lessons is specially tailored to his pupils, helping them to develop their guitar playing skills even faster.
“Anyone and I mean ANYONE can learn to play the guitar. All you need are some detailed structured lessons, some gentle encouragement and of course lots of practice and you'll be playing away in no time at all.”
Outside of his teaching, Dave continues to play in original bands and a wedding band Cousin Matthew. He has some notable achievements over the years including playing with Paul Gilbert (Mr Big/Racer X), Matt O Grady (Virgin Records & You Me At Six), as well as having performed over 5000 live shows over 3 continents in the past decade.
He would be delighted to teach you guitar no matter what your musical background or goals.
