There’s no shortage of guitar teachers in Music City USA… They don’t call Nashville “Guitar Town” for nothing. But, Dave Isaacs has earned a reputation as one of the best: not simply a guitar and piano teacher but as a musical mentor to performing artists, songwriters, and working musicians as well as beginners, weekend warriors, and perpetual beginners. Dave’s approach to teaching develops not only guitar playing but the whole musician, building real skills, confidence, and musical knowledge.


Dave published his first book The Perpetual Beginner: A Musician’s Path to Lifelong Learning in 2019. Publishers Weekly called it “a delightful blend of memoir and music instruction” and featured it as a spotlight new release.


As a speaker and workshop leader, Dave offers creative people—and those who want to be more creative—with an inspiring and practical perspective on music, methodology, and motivation. Dave’s students have included hit songwriters, internationally touring performers and the next generation of Nashville’s rising stars.


A dynamic performing artist himself, Dave has played in venues across the US from small clubs to festivals and concert halls. He’s jammed with Les Paul on a Manhattan nightclub stage, rocked in the mud at Yasgur’s Farm, harmonized in Greenwich Village folk clubs, and chicken-picked hot licks on Nashville’s Lower Broadway. His twelve independent album releases run a wide stylistic range, from eclectic singer-songwriter to swampy groove-blues, bright country-rock, Southern soul, and lyrical jazz and classical guitar.


On the academic side, Dave is an award-winning graduate of New York’s venerable Manhattan School of Music, with a Master of Music degree in classical guitar performance. He was a full-time instructor of music and music technology at Tennessee State University from 2009-2013 and taught music theory and listening skills in the audio production program at the Art Institute of Tennessee-Nashville from 2008-2016.


Through his online guitar lessons at ArtistWorks, you’ll learn the ins and outs of Dave’s distinct approach to the instrument and the intricate methods that define his one-of-a-kind sound and style. Dave has drawn from his extensive knowledge as a professional guitarist and seasoned educator to create a comprehensive course of guitar lessons online designed to teach players everything they need to know to become a well-rounded session guitarist.


So, whether you're starting from scratch or you’re an experienced player looking to break new ground, learn with Dave and get an intimate look into his unique approach and style. Grow as a guitar player while simultaneously furthering yourself as a musician, and get direct guidance from Dave at every step of your musical journey.
