Last guitar lessons tonight, went extremely quick but was fun. I learned a lot, played a lot, and had a lot of fun. Thanks Dave Anthony for the experience! - Jeffrey Archer - student

"Its like a Blues guitarist, a Jazz writer, and a Country artist all fell into a blender and made a Dave Anthony Smoothie. Great stuff. I'm totally digging it." - (Jackson Holmes musician/singer/songwriter Atlanta GA.)

"At my house Dave Anthony is affectionately referred to as 'Guitar Teacher Extraordinaire.' Dave Anthony transfers his remarkable guitar playing skill to his protege's through a structured "grade level" program tackled at an appropriate pace. Dave's success with students is enhanced, not only through his advanced knowledge and experience, but by his easy manner that is altogether humorous, honest and motivating!"  - Bonnie Schwab (parent of student)

"We have found Dave to be an excellent teacher; he is able to really draw the best out of our son. Using a balance of encouragement, teaching techniques and some great learning material, we’ve seen Jacob advance in a short time to a very competent level. Thanks Dave, great job." - Andy Cave (parent of student)

“I had the pleasure of interacting with Dave Anthony over the past year as one of his guitar students. He had a wonderful curriculum, which was I found to be very flexible depending on my needs. Dave is a patient, experienced teacher and inspiring to work with. I believe this is a most important quality for an educator. I highly recommend Dave Anthony as a guitar teacher.”  - Betty Anne Northup - Vernon, BC
