Daniel is very communicative and reliable when it comes to scheduling and keeping lesson appointments. He comes to the lesson full of enthusiasm and with thoughtful and practical guidance to meet my goals with guitar. Lessons are super fun and valuable!

Daniel is great! Very responsive and focused on how and what you want to learn. Just had my first lesson, it was fun and challenging. Can't wait for next week!

I worked with Daniel for a few months taking some guitar lessons. One of the things I liked most about working with him was that he was able to specifically focus on the things I wanted to improve as a player. He didn’t make me learn anything redundant or unnecessary. He also has a great ear, I loved being able to him or play him a song and have not only replicate it perfectly, but also show me how to play it note for note. Daniel helped me transition from a beginner/intermediate player to the next step in a matter of weeks. His teaching style is simple, easy to understand, lighthearted, and very professional. He is also very affordable for the amount of knowledge he’s willing to share with you, and he even makes you a video lesson recapping everything you learned for no additional cost so you can practice it at home. I’d definitely recommend Daniel not only to beginners but also to players looking to get to the next level in their playing. Try him out, I promise you won’t regret it.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an Associate's degree in music and completed my Bachelor's degree in Jazz Studies for guitar at Sonoma State University. I have many years of training in both music theory and musical performance, and years of live performance experience as a guitarist, drummer, vocalist, and keyboardist. I also have had many years to exploring the art of songwriting and have picked up a plethora of various strategies and tools that can be used to craft original musical compositions. I've written everything from simple acoustic singer/songwriter tunes to entire jazz big band charts.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I began teaching guitar and bass privately towards the end of my days spend at High School, and continued this during my college years. My teaching has now expanded beyond guitar and bass to include drums, piano, and voice.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have with age groups ranging from 5 to adult, and have worked with students of varying degrees of musical background. That is, individuals who had never touched an instrument before, to individuals with years of past musical experience.
