"Daniel makes each lesson very enjoyable! My child looks forward to every music lesson each time with him! In particular, Mr. Daniel is also very attentive and is open to communication with parents - one aspect that I really appreciate about him. In discussing the progress for our child, Mr. Daniel and I brainstormed on a few ideas. We finally came up with allowing my kid to choose a favorite song to work on. WHAT AN AWESOME IDEA! There were other approaches that were also employed - but that goes into more detail and can vary by the student level. Either way, I could not believe the progress and most importantly, the interest level was sky high. I think it is important to find a good teacher who can be accommodating to each student's needs, and is always on track to stay focused. Ultimately, the child will head towards Debussy, Bach, and the likes! (at least that is my hope.)
All in all, Mr. Daniel has very strong musical background but also incorporates an "everyday" approach so that it is a lot easier to grasp (well, at least for me!). That type of coaching and instruction works really well instead of just straight memorization for 10 hours a day (even though that may work for others... hey, to each their own.) But I am certain that most parents will honor quality music teachers like Mr. Daniel who can provide their children with the best possible lessons. (Hey, it is definitely better than letting them sit in front of their Ipads for hours.)"
