David Dorenfeld

Guitar, Bass and Piano

David has been playing guitar and singing since he was 15. He also plays piano, bass guitar, and drums. He took guitar lessons for over 3 years locally and since then has been self-taught. Though he’s been playing by ear his whole life, he is well educated in music theory and notation and can teach theory in-depth.

David enjoys writing and producing his own music. He started producing music when he was 20. He also loves language, and after studying abroad in France for a semester in college, now speaks French fluently.

The only thing David loves as much as learning, writing and playing music is teaching music. Always optimistic, he will help the student at any level improve on their instrument in the most fun and effective way possible.
