“Our son Jackson has been working with Dave for over a year now. Though our son had experience playing the guitar before starting with Dave, we've seen him really grow in terms of his music reading ability, understanding of music process and construction and enjoyment playing his guitars. Dave has really fostered an appreciation for playing and it is evident in our son's progress.”

Dave Byron teaching a guitar lesson to a young student

“As an adult new to the guitar, Dave has done a great job finding the balance between the academic side and the fun, ‘just play’ side of instruction. He has broken down some fun to play songs and riffs that have helped develop my dexterity, while adding in enough theory so that I have a greater understanding of the structure of songs and the rules and patterns they tend to follow. His balanced style has been great and he makes sure I am always progressing, whether it be in dexterity, or knowledge.”
