Hi, I'm David Hillman

Guitar lessons that focus on each individual student's needs.

The ability to create and enjoy music is a natural and biological trait inherent in all people. It’s my pleasure to help you become the musical being you’ve always wanted to be. You’ll be surprised to find out how much you already know about the simple elegant system that is music.

Please take a look around my site.

Listen to some of my playing, read the FAQ, and check out some testimonials from students and parents. You can easily get a hold of me to ask questions or sign up.

I have been playing the guitar for over 40 years and offering guitar lessons in the Seattle area since 1989.

I’ve also taken hundreds and hundreds of private guitar and vocal lessons in my life and have a firm grasp on what it means to be both student and teacher. I always want my students to look forward to their lessons, even when they haven’t practiced. Music should be fun and there is always something we can work on.

I design my guitar lessons around each individual student and strive to keep the lessons light and enjoyable while also aiming for a high standard of education. Whether you are looking to play for pleasure at home, around the campfire, or want to learn practical music theory for composition and/or improvisation, I have instruction programs for all levels and styles from beginner to advanced and from ages 12 years on up.
