I started guitar lessons with David Joel in my Junior year of high school, with the hope that I would gain knowledge of the guitar and reading music. I took lessons to prepare me for my music classes in college and I believe he did an excellent job at preparing me for what I am now about to face going into my freshman year. Out of everything he has taught me I think my best improvement would be my technique. Before I was a mess and he taught me the proper way to play the guitar. Now that I know that, I have been passing on his words of wisdom to my friends. He is a phenomenal teacher and I would recommend him to any of my friends.
