Daniel D. Kansas City, KS

About Daniel

Dan is a teacher and guitarist from Kansas City, KS. As a teenager he studied blues and jazz with former B.B. King sideman Dwight Foster. This background aided him when he took classes in jazz improvisation and music composition at the University of Kansas. At KU, he started giving guitar lessons and teaching English Literature to help pay tuition. He also joined the blues-rock/metal hybrid Inphobic, a group that went on to play with Carlos Santana, Everlast, and Cheap Trick among others.

After finishing his MA at Pittsburg State University, he returned to Kansas City and began teaching in the Kansas City, KS school district. His five years of high school teaching (to go along with another three at the college level) has showed him that being a great teacher is both the ...

I have had two other guitar teachers in the past. Daniel far exceeds any of the previous two! I wouldn't hesitate for a nano-second to recommend him to others! If you are looking for a good guitar teacher, look no further.

Dan is a passionate teacher who makes the lesson fun!

Dan is patient and a great teacher. My son started learning how to play electric guitar with Dan and has developed a lot of progress in the past five months. Dan always shares the stories when teaching the lessons to make the lessons enjoyable. He has adapted his teaching style and lessons to suit my 7 year old beginner.

He is always on time, flexible and works with our schedule when we occasionally have conflicts. He encourages my son to ask questions and practice the variety of songs he teaches. I will not hesitate to recommend Dan if someone is looking for a knowledgeable and great teacher who cares about his students and teaches them what they want to know.

An absolutely fantastic teacher

I had been through 3 guitar teachers in just the past year before I finally found Daniel. While my previous teachers had all been very skilled and knowledgeable, Daniel was the first one who I felt actually took a sincere interest in helping me to achieve my goals. He consistently made a real effort to ensure we were focusing on what I wanted to focus on. He had a great habit of asking "Do you have any questions about the guitar that we haven't talked about yet?", and what was even better is I felt he genuinely wanted to know the answer. On top of all this, he is a phenomenal guitar player, a patient and articulate teacher, and a very friendly guy. I honestly cannot identify one deficit in his teaching style and system.

Great lesson

It's only been one lesson, but it is quite clear that Barbara knows her stuff. She has an air of comfort and confidence in her teaching that can only be achieved with years of experience. Barbara makes you instantly feel at home and makes an effort to get to know you before jumping into instruction. I'm looking forward to my next lesson with this great teacher!

Marci S. Lenexa, KS

About Marci

Welcome to my studio! Here is a recent blurb about me:

Marci began her classical piano studies at 8 years old, in the private studio of concert pianist Elaine de San Miguel. In addition to recitals, concerts, camps and master classes, Marci branched out into performing in a variety of venues, as an accompanist for vocalists, instrumentalists, choirs and musicals. When she wasn't playing the piano for people, she was taking voice lessons, singing in both traditional & show choirs, and performing in musical theater. Her favorite TV show is currently "Phineas & Ferb"! (Great music on that show, if you hadn't noticed!)

Marci holds a teaching license in the state of Kansas, and is classified as "highly qualified" according to the No Child Left ...

Marci is fabulous with senior citizens!!!

I am 60 years old, retired, and have always wanted to take piano lessons. Our perfect grandson, Max, has been taking lessons with Marci for a couple of years, and his brother, our other perfect grandson, Gibson, will be starting soon. Their mom recommended Marci with no hesitation. I do the same!!

I am a different student for Marci than she is used to. She has the gift of a true teacher to be able to teach any age. (As a retired teacher of 35 years, I can attest to this professionally as well as personally!) She has the gift of dealing with any age and any ability.

I would recommend Marci with my whole heart and no hesitation whatsoever!!

Michael R. Kansas City, KS

About Michael

My name is Michael R. I am a drummer, percussionist, guitarist, and musician. I have been playing the drums for 15 years, the guitar for 10 years, and I've just reached my 5th year of teaching as of 2014. Unlike most extraordinary musicians, I'm not necessarily 'naturally gifted.' I got to where I am as a musician by practicing and studying for years and with hard work and determination, anyone and everyone can be a killer musician! When I first started, I never caught on quite as quick as others, so I understand completely that patience is the most important aspect of becoming a musician. If you're looking for a stress free, patient, learn at your own pace learning experience, you've come to the right guy!

Thomsons drum lessons

My son Thomson LOVED drum lessons with Michael. We are sorry to be leaving Kansas City and unable to continue with him. He taught Thomson how to play some of his favorite songs, and inspired him to learn about other types of music as well. Because Michael can also play the guitar, they were able to jam together which Thomson loved. He progressed very quickly because he had such a good time. He said that Michael was very patient and nice, and made him feel confident about his playing. We really hope that when we are back in town next summer that Michael will be available to teach again. We'd give him 10 stars if we could!
Heather N. Overland Park, KS

About Heather

Teaching music is a privilege and a joy. I've had the great pleasure of teaching students of all ages and ability levels. Currently I am completing my doctorate in vocal pedagogy from the University of Kansas, and should be defending in early fall. My training has given me unique and comprehensive training in anatomy and physiology of the voice, which gives me a thorough understanding of vocal development. I am connected to area medical centers and voice clinics and am a Singing Voice Specialist working with clients who have been diagnosed with a vocal injury, such as polyps or nodules.

I have been teaching voice and piano for fifteen years, including teaching at universities as a faculty member. I strive to develop curriculum that is student-centered and will meet the ...
