In addition to his work as a performer, David is an active teacher, available for lessons both in-person in New York City and via Skype for anywhere in the world. His teaching includes the areas of:
- Guitar (for all levels and a range of genres)
- Jazz Improvisation (for all instruments)
- Theory, Harmony, Rhythm
- Preparing for a music school audition
He is a certified instructor at the New York Jazz Workshop and the Educational Advantage School of Music. He also holds a degree in Performance from Berklee College of Music and is the author of the book "Intervallic Patterns for Improvisation."
His philosophy towards education is the classic metaphor, “Give a someone a fish, you feed them for a day; teach someone how to fish, you feed them for a lifetime.” He believes that an effective teacher influences the student to teach themselves in the long-run as they continually develop their craft, working with the student to remove any barriers inhibiting them from their ideal form of musical expression.
