Teaching & Behavior Modification

Stanley’s teaching studio is located in Northwest Las Vegas (Centennial Hills), and he teaches piano, cello, bass (acoustic & electric) for all levels. He also teaches beginning through intermediate guitar and voice and all levels of music theory, composition and studio/live sound engineering (including MIDI sequencing).  The initial “trial” lesson is gratis and offers a chance for students to see the teaching facility and discuss specific needs.  Mr. Davis uses a “situational-style” of music education.
