If you’re in the Marion, Iowa or Cedar Rapids Metro area looking for private guitar lessons, bass guitar lessons, or audio recording lessons, guitarist Dave Paris is always accepting new students and would be happy to work you into his schedule.
An accomplished guitarist, passionate about giving the best to and getting the best from his students, Dave offers a unique approach, customized for every student to inspire them to success with their instrument. With over 20 years private lesson teaching experience, Dave is continually learning and advancing his own technique and is proud to pass that knowledge on. His own quest for learning has taken him coast to coast, having attended sessions at Hollywood’s Musicians Institute/Guitar Institute of Technology, to New York at Paul Gilbert’s Great Guitar Escape with major label heavyweights like Tony MacAlpine, Guthrie Govan, Kelly LeMieux, Paul Gilbert, and others.
Dave has also been featured in the nationally-distributed publication Guitar Player Magazine, highlighting his relationship with one of his students he brought on stage to perform with his band. If you’re looking for a slot for a home-schooled student, night-shift worker, or retiree, Dave’s flexible schedule can even provide you a time during mornings or afternoons for anyone in Cedar Rapids, Marion, Hiawatha, or the surrounding Metro community. No matter your style, age, level, or aspirations, Dave will work with you where ever your starting point to help you develop your abilities to reach and exceed your goals.
Let Dave’s experience as a performer and session musician in rock, blues, classical, pop, praise and worship, country, acoustic, and jazz work for you. Whether you want to learn the basics from a book, develop your ear and "play it just like the recording”, write your own songs, utilize extensive music theory scales, modes, and concepts, play in a band, learn a funky slap bass line, or just “shred”, there’s no reason to delay getting started, and no limit to your success.
If you have struggled to understand your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) recording software, it's time to set up audio recording lessons. Dave has worked in live and studio audio for years. His background includes designing and setting up audio recording facilities, as well as countless hours tracking for recording sessions on multiple instruments and vocals. Dave has served as a producer, engineer, and arranger for multiple genres, and has extensive experience with various analog and digital audio platforms, including Pro Tools. He has even worked alongside audio engineering and Grammy award winning legend Glenn Kolotkin, mixing at the elusive Golden Dome Records studio in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
