David was born in Nashville, TN and began playing guitar at age 12. He holds a BFA in Jazz Guitar Performance from the New School and also has a strong background in hospitality. David joins NYC Guitar Schools as a Student Experience Coordinator where he will be a friendly face behind the front desk at the Midtown location (or a friendly voice over the phone). He is excited to meet and to build relationships with each student and teacher. Most of all, he hopes to help each student achieve their potential both as a musician and as a person.
As a guitarist, David is a fluid and adept player who loves shredding over complex harmonies as much as playing washy, wild chord voicings with a ton of effects. He is equally skilled and experienced at playing jazz, rock, fusion, metal, funk, neo-soul, indie, and everything in between. But most of all, David believes a player should “sound good at making others sound good.”
