” I signed up for a lesson with Dave based on a glowing referral from a talented friend of mine, and I was not disappointed. He really knows how to cater to the needs of the student and ensures basic understanding of concepts before trying to rush into anything, which is unique and helpful for me. Other guitar teachers I’ve had teach you how to play songs. Dave will teach you how to play the guitar. “

Thanks for joining Sheree SpoltoreCj Watson and myself to make the event memorable for all who attended. ”

“Dave Isaacs was my professor at Tennessee State University in Nashville for my classes Commercial Music Ensemble and Basic Studio. He is a rare kind of professor that makes it his main priority to spend as much time and energy as he needs to make sure each individual student truly understands what he is teaching.

He is an incredibly well rounded gifted person and I highly recommend anyone who gets the chance to study with him to jump at it.”
