Since beginning his teaching career in 1974 David has taught 7000 people how to play guitar! Some aspiring only to play at home for fun and others to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. David Fisher has also taught advanced guitar and music theory to several professional musicians who already play other instruments fluently including Oscar nominee Scott Rogness, who co-wrote and performed the songs featured in the movie That Thing You Do.
"I studied with David for about 8 months. Although proficient on keyboards, a singer and songwriter; I had never learned the guitar. I knew a lot about the guitar by osmosis, but technically was green. David let me look at the guitar in a whole new way, using infinite variations on basic chords, showed me how to move and follow vocal melodies and challenged me to SEE what I was playing. All at the speed of thought."

He is focused on building a solid base of playing technique that can be applied to any style or genre of music the student is interested in playing. He emphasizes precise musicianship thru skills practices that incorporate aids such as the metronome, Band-in-Box . and demonstration. He reinforces reading skills in every lesson using a variety of songs of differing styles and complexities....

It does you absolutely no good if your teacher can play 10x faster than Yngwie Malmsteen and create tone that would make Jimi Hendrix weep if he cannot tell you how to play a C major scale. It also does very little good to learn how the tensile strength of the nickle used in the strings affects tone from a GA Tech professor if he cannot show you where A# can be found on the G string. David will teach you about the guitar..."
