The passion and intensity that emanates from David Joel’s playing and teaching can be felt by his students. Though I’ve been with him only a short time, I’ve already made drastic gains in regards to theory comprehension, soloing, and improvisation. He has expanded my musical horizons as well as increased my love for the instrument. Somehow, he was able to tailor a teaching style around my individual goals and method of learning. David Joel is willing to take me as far with the guitar as I am willing to work and go. I am lucky to have found him.
