"Other guitar teachers teach you how to play songs. Dave will teach you how to play the guitar."

“Some guitarists are gifted players and a few are gifted teachers, but it’s rare to find someone who has full command of both disciplines. Dave Isaacs is one such musician, and he distills a lifetime of study, performing, and instruction into inspiring, practical advice that will benefit beginners and seasoned players alike".

Andy Ellis, former Senior Editor
Guitar Player magazine

"Dave is an outstanding teacher because he is part fan, part musician, part songwriter, part psychologist and part motivator. Dave manages to take all those things and weaves them together to benefit, challenge and inspire."

Bart Herbison, Executive Director
Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI)

Dave Isaacs

Meet Dave Isaacs.

Dave Isaacs has been called “a musician’s musician”, a master player with the command and knowledge of his instrument that can only come from a lifetime of experience. In his adopted hometown of Music City USA he has become known in the music community as the “Guitar Guru of Music Row” for his work as a teacher and coach to professional performers, hit songwriters, and the next generation of Nashville’s rising stars.

Dave’s 2019 book The Perpetual Beginner was called “a delightful blend of memoir and music instruction” by Publisher’s Weekly. He has released 14 albums of original music and two books of solo guitar compositions, in addition to his extensive online writings on music and guitar.
