music lessons singer songwriter mentor

Learn from a mentor

as you create in the studio 

and collaborate with your peers.

The encouraging community and

leadership development combination is unique.

For some, it's life-changing.

You're musical, but you may not be a classical, or concert or jazz band musician.

You sing and may write songs or lead a band with friends outside of school.

If you're like I was years ago, you want to be understood by someone who can guide you and your music to be recognized and celebrated.


If this sounds like you, you're a creative with something to say

and an emerging leader who needs a mentor with a way forward.

Lisa testimonial

MNYC Students & Studio Masterclass, and Artist Recordings

"Dave is not only an extremely accomplished musician, but also an excellent role model, mentor and teacher who continually seeks to encourage those around him to be the best they can be. I know of very few musicians who are as well-rounded, while maintaining a wonderful mix of humility and concern for others."

Lisa Prokopowitz, MT-BC, ACC (music therapist, songwriter, performer)

"Dave Edwards is easily the most gifted multi instrumentalist I have ever heard. In addition to a remarkably rich and moving tenor voice, any band would be lucky to have him as their sole Drummer, Guitarist, Pianist or Bassist. To be able to play brilliantly on both a conceptual and technical level on four separate and demanding instruments and also play well on fiddle, dulcimer and other instruments is a marvel to behold."

Rob Mathes, producer/arranger (Sting / Springsteen / Lou Reed / Yo-Yo Ma / Renee Flemming)
