Introduction: I love sharing my passion for music and enjoy teaching a diverse group of students. My teaching philosophy and curriculum is individualized to be centered around meeting the needs and goals of the student. I have worked with all levels of students from those just beginning to play the cello to preparing cellists to study at top level music conservatories across the country! My strong performance background in cello across many genres gives me a high degree of flexibility as a teacher. I emphasize consistent practice and good technique; but I also prioritize giving students weekly goals so they can easily see their improvements and progress. This is such a rewarding part of learning music! I look forward to working with you as your cello teacher. I hold a BM (Ithaca College) and MM (Purchase College) in Cello Performance. I enjoy composing and arranging professionally and produce music for TV/Film. To learn more about me, my CV, and my work please visit my website.

Daniel has been teaching my 12 year old son for a few years now, and my son’s playing has come on wonderfully! My son describes lessons with Daniel and fun and creative. He never wants to miss one!

Daniel played for my wedding last month and was absolutely amazing! He was responsive to all my questions and emails leading up to the wedding and on the day-of. He was on time and was able to set up quickly without help from me. He even quickly adapted from an outdoor ceremony to playing indoors due to rain. The music was BEAUTIFUL, even more so than expected. He is incredibly talented. It enhanced our wedding in an affordable way, so I cannot recommend enough!

Details: Wedding ceremony • 51 - 75 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Other strings • No preference • Other • Outdoors

I live in a rural area and haven't been able to find someone to work in person with to learn cello as an adult beginner. So I turned to the internet and found thumbtack, then Daniel. I just had a feeling about him, so I reached out and we connected for a free intro lesson. I knew at that moment he was my teacher until I find someone as perfect for me that I can work with here. As a teacher, Daniel has the rare and crucial skill of meeting me exactly where I am as a student. He was able to assess my energy, my approach, and my ways as a student and has taught me with a mixture of support for my natural inclinations and encouragement towards the places I'm not as keen on in a way that gives me a lot of new skills to work with and a lot of new ways to explore as a creative after every session. I recommend working with him %1000. Thanks for being awesome, Daniel! I'm honored to be learning with you and so grateful for your skill and sensitivity as a player and as a teacher.

Simply put, they were amazing!!! Their process for preparing a personalized playlist was easy, yet very in-depth and in tune with the vibes that we were looking for. The music was excellent, as was their punctuality, responsiveness, and their professionalism. They were also well-dressed, which is always a must. Hands-down, a great experience from start to finish. They made the ambiance of our special day truly exceptional.
