Instrumental Fingerstyle & Classical Guitar Music

An experienced, professional musician.

David Coester is a classically trained guitarist and teacher. He earned his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Guitar Performance from the Manhattan School of Music and spent 18 years in New York City.

David moved to Western, New York State in 2003 and opened the MeanTone Guitar Studio where he teaches privately to students of all ages and abilities in Dunkirk and Mayville.

In addition to teaching, David plays regularly at private parties, weddings, and gallery openings, and has given concert lectures for audiences at the Chautauqua Institution among other organizations. His most recent public recital was held at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House. He has also performed at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D. C., the Basilica of San Clemente in Rome, Italy, and the Seoul Arts Center in Korea.

David plays events throughout the Finger Lakes region, Ithaca and Central N.Y. Including Rochester, Binghamton, Syracuse, Uttica and Corning.
