About David Elan Kelley

I am a guitarist and composer residing in beautiful Portland, OR. I grew up in the Washington DC area but moved out west for the spirit of adventure. I received my bachelor of arts in classical guitar performance form Southern Oregon University in 2010 where I studied under the world class guitarist David Rogers. I compose and perform in a variety of popular music styles in both ensemble and solo settings. I am available for all events and for both individual and group instruction with competitive rates.
