Introduction: Teaching is my passion, and I use that passion to ignite the love of music and learning in my students. I practice unlocking my students' potential through music. To me, the essence of learning is the discovery of new pastures and the removal of learning obstacles on the path to free and joyful expression. Regardless of your age or experience level, you can count on me to meet you where you are and communicate with the latent potential within you to grow and develop. Each of my students has a unique path, and I remind myself that every student learns and thinks differently. I teach in a way that brings together the mind, body, and spirit so that my students, beginner to advanced, may have a holistic and rich experience of music. I am also fully set up for the 21st century, using Zoom with visual assistance and classroom-style technology for the teaching of Music Theory as well as for visual learners. Discounts: 10% reduction when lessons are paid for 1-month at a time. Covid-19 disclaimer: I disinfect the surfaces in my studio and can wear masks and gloves during lessons based on the requests of clients. Open communication is key.

Guitar Lessons

I started practicing guitar within the last year and realized pretty quickly that I wasn't going to make much real progress without a teacher. I found Daniel, we talked a bit, and I agreed to lessons. I've now had about five lessons and feel like I'm making progress even though I'm struggling with all my foundational skills. Daniel has been very patient and accommodating with a difficult middle-aged student who can't seem to focus on any one thing for very long. My brain is filled with 50 years of music I'd like to play, but needs reined in to grasp the basics: sight reading, timing, chords, fretboard, posture, etc. This is going to take a while, so I'm glad to have found a patient teacher.

Guitar Lessons

Daniel has been an excellent teacher. He helpem me, in 2 sessions, get past a difficult part of a song I'd been stuck on for months. He also recommended a specific lap based guitar supprt which has helped my playing immensely. He's focused on details and technique, which is important to me as a student. I'd easily recommend him for any student at any level.

Guitar Lessons

I am a beginner guitarist and started with Daniel recently. Daniel has an excellent way of explaining best ways to practice, achieve goals, insight into music, and is very supportive in his teaching. He seems genuine and has an advanced knowledge of guitar and music theory. I know that I can continue to use him as an instructor for a very long time in reaching my own goals.

Guitar Lessons

Daniel has been the perfect teacher for two of our young sons who are just starting out on their guitar journey. He has a great manner that keeps them both engaged and desiring to play more and more. And the progress they have made has been tremendous. They truly love the instrument and the vast majority of the reason for this is Daniels excellent instruction. We could not be happier with Daniel and would highly highly recommend him to anyone who wants to take their skillls to another level.

Guitar Lessons

Daniel was an excellent tutor. He was always very helpful during my sessions and also outside of the sessions if I had any questions. I had to hit pause on my lessons due to some personal reasons but I will be back soon to pick up where we left off! Be at ease with choosing Daniel!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I can offer a 10% discount to students who pay for an entire month of lessons at a time.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We'll connect for a first lesson. This will be an opportunity for you to share with me your musical goals, and for me to build a plan for you to reach them. Playing, instruction, and direction will occur so you leave the first lesson excited for your journey.

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

    I have a Master's in Music Performance from the University of South Carolina, and a Performance Certificate from the University of Denver. I also have a Bachelor's in Music Technology which opens up options for lessons and practice performance. I am also an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, and this deeply informs how I approach teaching and the body/mind connection.
