My name is David and I have been playing music since I can remember. I’m a multi-instrumentalist who strives to foster and build the local music community and the music industry itself into something meaningful, respectful, positive, uplifting and something that every artist who contributes to it can get reciprocity from.
I studied Jazz Guitar and performance at Portland State University and have been playing guitar the longest, 20 years. I also play Bass (electric/upright), Piano (keyboards/synth/organ), Drumset (full kit/aux percussion), Mandolin and I am also a vocalist. These are the instruments I teach, but I am currently also personally learning Cello, Trumpet, Vibraphone, and Harp. I do teach Music Theory as well as songwriting. I am a multi-instrumentalist who is passionate about music.
I also have extensive experience in multiple facets of the music industry including performing, touring, audio engineering, producing, studio musicianship work, lighting, theater, booking etc.. which I find very valuable in teaching others about music as a fun activity and the music industry as it exists.
More than anything I believe that music is a fundamental part of society and is vastly undervalued and I strive to show people that are interested in it that music is an amazing and powerful thing that everyone can reap joy from.
