“Dave is quick to analyze my skills (or lack thereof) and develop a plan for me to learn the guitar and music. He taught me music theory and increased my interest in music. Throughout the year we ventured into several areas I had not thought of, and he uses some of his own teaching tools to aid in my learning and appreciation of playing the guitar.”

“I have seen Dave work with all levels of ability. He’s able to keep things simple for the beginner and interesting for the advance guitarist. Dave is an excellent, first-class music/guitar instructor and I feel fortunate to be able to have lessons with him from the comfort of my home.”

“Dave is the most knowledgeable individual concerning the guitar I have yet to encounter. He can play any genre and not only teaches you how to play, he helps you understand the guitar and how to expand on what he is teaching. I have learned more in a couple of months with Dave than the previous year. I highly recommend you give Dave a try. You won’t be disappointed.”

“I performed some due diligence and scheduled my first live online ‘1 on 1’ lesson with guitar instructor Dave Celentano. This experience has been nothing short of an epiphany in my learning experience. I feel fortunate, as I realized early on that Dave enjoys teaching. In my specific case, everything clicked when I met Dave, and I truly believe that my approach has become more disciplined and I am finally experiencing tangible results.”

“After playing guitar for nearly 3 years and only now beginning to see notable improvements in my playing, I wondered ‘why now?’ The answer to the question is unequivocally my live ‘1 on 1’ private lessons with Guitar Tricks instructor Dave Celentano. He is positive and reinforcing without being fake, he holds me accountable without being pejorative, and he has meaningful expectations while fully understanding the life demands of non-traditional students. Dave tailors his teaching to what I need every single session, and despite his busy teaching schedule, he always comes to class fully prepared and somehow seems to know exactly where we left off.”
