I came to Dan for lessons after a couple years away from the guitar and in just a few months Dan has helped me surpass the skill level I was at a few years ago. He is courteous and patient yet gets you to work hard. He is very talented in his craft and can teach any style of guitar.

Dan is fantastic! He holds a wealth of knowledge about the guitar and is an incredibly patient and understanding instructor. I am a college student so my main concerns are with time and cost which are two things Dan does an excellent job navigating around. After a little more than a month, my guitar skills have increased dramatically.

Great communication before our lesson, and he was excellent with my daughter! She had fun and learned something during our very first lesson. Very excited to continue!
