Since the beginning of his obsession with music at 8 years old, David Isaacs has focused his attention on the guitar. David has been playing guitar since 1988 and has performed throughout the US and Greece as a soloist, a chamber musician, and with guitar orchestras. David has released several CDs and has been featured on radio stations across the US. The American Record Guide’s Ken Keaton wrote “Isaacs plays with sensitivity and technical finish and is more emotionally committed to the music and its images than many far more famous players.” As a pedagogue, David is a Lecturer of Music and Humanities at California State University, Dominguez Hills and Long Beach City College where he conducts guitar ensembles, coaches chamber groups, and guides young players on their path to and through university study. In addition, David teaches masterclasses, judges guitar competitions, and teaches at his home studio. In print, David co-wrote The Essential Classical Guitar Scale Book published by Mel Bay, writes sheet music reviews for Soundboard, and edited Classical Guitar Complete, Vol. 1, Second Edition by Scott Morris. He helped establish and operate the Long Beach Classical Guitar Society, the Long Beach Classical Guitar Academy, and the Southern California Classical Guitar Summer Workshop. Currently, David is working on his Doctorate of Musical Arts at Claremont Graduate University under the tutelage of Jack Sanders where he has been performing on vihuela and Baroque guitar. An avid rock music fan, David shares this passion in History of Rock courses as well.
