Introduction: As a New Year's special, I am taking 10% off of virtual lessons for the first month of lessons for all new students! Nothing is more satisfying than hearing yourself playing a song that moves and inspires you! With over 15 years of playing music, I now pass on that knowledge to my students of all ages. Helping people learn music is both an amazing and invaluable experience. We not only go over how to play the instrument but also music theory and how to write your own songs! Whether it be a particular playing style, songwriting, soloing, a preferred genre or just to have fun playing your favorite songs, I cover it!

My daughter (10 yrs) absolutely thrives in Essaf's music lessons. He's not only teaching her basics in guitar, but something he is doing is teaching her to love music. She looks forward to the lessons each week. I appreciate the email follow-ups with ways I can support her music. We would both highly recommend Dan Essaf's Music.

Daniel Essaf is the best guitar teacher that I can ask for when it comes to teaching my 7-year-old. He is extremely patient and he tailors his lessons to keep my child engaged and excited to learn!

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Dan for six months. My daughter always looks forward to her guitar lessons and has enjoyed learning guitar with Dan! It becomes apparent very quickly that Dan has been teaching guitar for over 20 years. He always comes to the lessons prepared with exercises and tips to help the students. He is able to work with any student regardless of musical background or ability. My daughter has a disability, and Dan has been incredibly patient with her, repeated directions, and showed her things again to make sure she understood. Dan always provides notes and email at the end of the lesson for my daughter so she knows what she needs to work on for that week. Dan charges a reasonable price for the lessons, and I feel my daughter's gets her money's worth each week with Dan's expertise! I would highly recommend Dan for guitar lessons!

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

    Working with a new student is always going to vary from student to student. My first goal is to answer any initial questions they have and to just make them comfortable! Following that, we talk about their skill level and goals when it comes to playing music and then we start learning!

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

    I have been playing music for about 18 years now and took private lessons for close to 15 of them myself. I continue to study music, practice playing instruments, and write in my daily life because of my love for music! This helps me provide the best lessons that I can for my students!
