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 39 years and offering guitar lessons in the Pacific Northwest since 1989

Portland, OR is known for its long and rich music history and I am lucky to have played a small part of it. From the 1990’s to now I have attended and played many shows here. With online lessons, I am now teaching the guitar to students in Portland and beyond. Please reach out through my contact page.
