My approach to teaching is greatly guided by my students' goals, needs and personalities. Most importantly, the core value of my teaching approach is to engage students and encourage them to discover the joy of learning, practicing and playing music.

I provide comprehensive training in instrumental technique and music theory, specialising in guitar, bass and ukulele, and up to intermediate keyboard/piano. Learning how to practice effectively is one of the keys to success as a musician, and I provide ongoing support to my students in making effective practice a part of their weekly routine.

I am a graduate of Box Hill Institute with a Bachelor of Applied Music and I am currently completing my Master of Teaching at Deakin University.
I teach individuals across all skill and knowledge levels and I adapt my curriculum to your or your child's aspirations and needs, including those within the neurodiverse community.

I am skilled in performing and teaching a wide range of music styles, and I have over 10 years experience as a music educator. I have conducted lessons in a variety of settings including individual and group lessons, in primary and high schools, school bands and within the VCE Music curriculum. Preparation for VCE guitar exams is available.

I didn't think I had it in me to play guitar but Dave has shown me that I can! Dave's a perfect teacher, he is supportive at the exact right times and challenging at the exact right times and makes it all fun. Learning online works really well too.

Highly recommend David. My son is loving his online piano lessons with David and is playing without prompting for at least half an hour a day since he started lessons with him. David takes a creative and fun approach which is really refreshing. And he's just a really nice guy. Highly recommend!! Thanks David.
