Dan is a fantastic guitar teacher, talented songwriter and musician, and is also a wonderful person. Ive known Dan for more than two decades and learned so much from my lessons with him. He is a patient teacher with extensive experience in a range of guitar styles. In addition to Dans expert technique, I really appreciate his versatility. He knows how to play everything from classical music to classic rock, folk, etc. Dan will teach you a variety of styles, depending on your interests. He is very open minded and looks to help you learn the type of music that you are passionate about. I even brought in recordings of songs I heard along the way and no matter what it was, he could listen to song and figure out how to play it very quickly. Then, he would write down the music so I could practice it at home and would work with me to learn the song.
A master of finger style guitar, Dan has lots of helpful tips to improve your practice even how to trim your fingernails to produce the smoothest sound and feel to the strings. He is patient and has a really positive, encouraging attitude that makes the lessons really fun. I also appreciate that Dan is involved in the local music scene and has experience playing solo and with a band.
If you are looking for a guitar teacher whether youre a beginner or someone who has been playing for years -- I highly recommend taking lessons from Dan.
