The School of Feedback Guitar is the most highly-regarded school in Austin for absolute beginners to guitar on Yelp, and for good reason. I work hard to maintain an outstanding environment to learn guitar, and I love working with beginners.

If you want to learn guitar from scratch, you need a good start. Can you imagine igniting a life-long friendship with music if you hated to learn guitar? The first month of learning guitar is important, and the right approach is critical.

If you decide to take guitar lessons, you'll need a teacher who will stoke those fires of passion in you, who inspires you. No doubt, the teacher must help you along, using his or her years of experience as a guide. You'll need a teacher who has your back.

I've taught guitar for many years, and my work involves maintaining a mix of high-quality education, optimism, and humanity for each lesson I teach. My mission is to help anyone who is enthusiastic and excited about learning guitar, and I sincerely hope you'll consider me as your guide.

I hope to meet you soon,

Dave Wirth


Creating a solid reputation for excellence didn't happen overnight (I had to work hard for that).

The School Of Feedback Guitar


The School of Feedback Guitar is located a mere five minutes south of downtown Austin, TX. Five minutes!


I keep a large catalog of songs ready for deployment at any time during the learning process. I can also figure out songs by ear in case none of these songs really strike you as fun to play.



I have put my entire teaching schedule online and I allow students the power to pick and choose immediately which lesson slots work best for them. The result? Scheduling hassles have been virtually eliminated.



I completely customize each lesson for each student individually, period. I’ll never give you any ‘homework’ that’s way beyond your skill level, and I'll always find a perfect song for you to dig into.



Long ago, I decided that teaching guitar wasn’t just about music—it's about connecting with people. The guitar is just an excuse! I enjoy hanging out with people and playing music with them.



The School of Feedback Guitar is set up in room painted a deep shade of blue. I think it has a wonderful ambiance with tasteful lighting. No crappy fluorescent lights here, no thank you, and no guitarists turning their amps up next door, either.




I always remember what you worked on in the previous lesson, and I always know where we could go next. I know how to play and teach guitar. How many other Austin guitar teachers can do that?!?





Musicians visualize songs in specific ways. I have created all of my materials in such a way as to help you visualize music the way a musician does.
