Hi. I’m Dave Longo. At the age of 7, I was put in touch with a piano teacher who couldn’t play the instrument. I stuck with him every week for 5 years and the effects of that relationship were nothing short of outrageous. If you want to know why send me an email, but what this really means to you is that I know how to help people with self-initiative.
I have a passion for helping people who don’t believe in themselves because that’s where I have the knack for causing the most change. Hey, if you want to play the piano and never thought you had the ability, you and I will get along great. In addition, if you’ve always played “by the book,” know only how to read and perform music that’s on the written page, and aspire to learn to play creatively, I have something to offer you.
My approach to helping someone with playing this instrument is on the aggressive/non-aggressive side. Huhhhh? What that means is I believe in getting a person to enjoy immediate results without preaching how much time he or she should be practicing each and every day. This angle has resulted throughout the years in my enjoying a great number of clients who learned to appreciate themselves more and who totally love their relationship with that piano or keyboard of theirs (interestingly enough, they practice more:))
I don’t know what it’s like to have a teacher who isn’t creative. Each and every private music teacher I’ve ever had taught me from a creative standpoint. So, when that student with 10-15 years of exclusive piano training comes to me to learn about chords and how to use them, they are faced with my compassion and enthusiasm. Then the fun begins.
The most important message I would like to get across is that I’m not here to tell you how skilled I am but, rather, how wonderfully creative YOU are (even if you are not quite aware of that yet).
In all honesty, it’s the input and feedback I’ve had the privilege of receiving from people like you that led to the many learning tools available here. That being said, allow me to express my gratitude to you for being here. I truly want your time here to prove to be a rewarding experience. When I think of your personal creative musical potential, I get goosebumps.
I believe in COMMUNICATION. It’s how what I have can benefit YOU that matters to me. If you are even thinking about investing in me or my products or services, I feel you have the right to get in touch with me easily. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear from you otherwise. Send me a hello. One of the best ways you can get the maximum benefit from this site is to interact with me personally… and I welcome that. So, right here and now, let’s make it easy for you to reach me:

Happy playing :o)
