Peabody Trained Composer and Guitarist available for lessons in guitar, bass, production, and more

Hi there! If you want to learn anything related to music theory, songwriting, guitar, bass, or audio, you've come to the right place! I'll teach you music through analysis, ear-training, technique, repertoire, improvisation, and much more. I'm an active and incredibly experienced musician who loves to teach one-on-one. If we work together, we'll come up with a syllabus customized for your particular learning needs.

I will travel to students within a 10 mile radius for an additional $5. Discounted lesson rates for buying a pack of hours.

I teach music reading, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, electronic music. Lessons are available for the following levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced, 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year, 4th year, junior, senior
I give lessons in person at my home, the student's home or meeting in public locations.
I give lessons by webcam.

David's resume

Bachelors of Music in Composition, May 2007

I am the founder of SongMind Studios. I offer lessons in songwriting, production, and guitar. I also create blog content and build custom teaching materials for students. Finally, I offer music career coaching and website development for clients.

I've created a number of online video recordings of 80-minute lessons for beginning to intermediate jazz guitarists. These can be found on Youtube (user: scraggo) and on Mike's Master Classes.

Since 2007, I've professionally taught private and group lessons in many settings throughout Maryland.

I played lead guitar for many years in Driven to Clarity (pop/rock/folk/blues) and was the co-producer in Rapid Dissension (trance). My music (rock/pop/jazz) is released under SCRAGGO.
