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

Methodology

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.

Background

Here's what can I help you with:

• Increasing your abilities as a guitarist in solo performances, group performances, and recording situations.
• Learning all styles of guitar, bass, drums, piano, composition, and music theory.
• Becoming fluent in the use of music recording software and online communication tools.
• I currently teach, perform, write, and release original, professional quality music.

You'll always have a friendly and dedicated guide to help you with whatever you're working on.

David's resume

Education:
Bachelors of Music in Composition, May 2007
Bachelors of Music in Recording Arts, May 2007

Experience:
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.
