"I have been writing songs for several years now, yet I got some new and unique insights from David. He doesn't feed you cliches, he gives you new perspectives on melody, rhythm, and lyrics. It will help me make further progress in my songwriting journey."
- Robert B.

Guitarist and Bandleader

David started playing guitar at age twelve. In high school, his band won the State Battle of the Bands in Michigan. Drawing on his twenty years as founder and leader of the eclectic Americana band, Hoodang, David brings a dynamic perspective and passion to each student and lesson.

David's unique approach to teaching beginning guitar is built on a system designed to move students as quickly as possible from where they currently are to where they want to be in the shortest possible timeframe. All lessons are tailored to each student's interests, current level of knowledge and skill, desires and dreams, and your level of commitment (how many hours can you dedicate to productive practice). His approach gives you a safe, low-pressure environment to learn what you want at your pace


After more than two decades of intensive songwriting, recording, and performing, David is sharing everything he's learned about crafting indelible songs that move audiences and musicians alike. 

Drawing on his experience as founder and leader of the eclectic Americana band, Hoodang, as well as ongoing work as a sought-after songwriting* and guitar teacher, David brings a dynamic perspective and passion to each lesson.

Two years in development, David's songwriting program is designed to accelerate your process of becoming a powerful and productive songwriter by teaching what matters most while helping you avoid the many pitfalls that line the path to success.

*David is a multi-year member of the teaching staff at the Above The Bridge Songwriting Workshop working with over 60 students of all levels and interests.
