First Impressions

They say first impressions are lasting, well Dan C. jumped right in and and set a very comfortable learning environment. As a novice beginner (Bass) I appreciated that and believe it or not I actually learned something in notes after just one lesson. Even with beginner mistakes he encouraged me to keep going until I got it right, and I did.I am a 20 year Navy VET and I've taught and know a good teacher when I meet one. Dan is one.Also, the take lessons organization has been very professional and timely in all of my questions etc.... I've made a great decision going with them!

Dan's Feedback

January 23, 2011: In my opinion Dan is a fine instructor, very friendly and easy to talk to. My son took guitar lessons several years ago, he was taught in a style that went straight to playing songs by tablatureHe could not read the notes, so I appreciate Dan teaching me to read the notes and learn the timing. I appreciate the way that he encourages me and in a tactful way pushes me to play better. When his alarm goes off to signal the lesson is over, he doesn't just pack up and rush off. He will take the time to finish whatever we are working on and let me know what I need to work on to prepare for the next lesson. .....Thanks Dan!!![Update] December 6, 2011: I could not be happier that I had Dan as my guitar instructor over this past year and if not for obtaining a full time job on top of full time college I would be continuing my lesson with him. He is always professional while also being able to put a smile on your face. Most of all he is just a great guy that's fun to play with. He is also very good at judging and predicting your abilities and matching them up with songs to learn; Songs that you know and like, so as you are learning the song, timing is easier to get down and you really have fun learning.I picked one song to learn, he let me know that it may be a little too advanced for me but without discouraging me. I should have listened, because that song had me so discouraged and frustrated that I would not pick up the guitar for days. He is so easy to talk with I was able to call him at home. He was able to motivate me to practice a different way and the next lesson I was moving on to another song. Dan is a huge asset to your organization and certainly the more instructors you have like Dan the more your company will flourish.

About Barbara

Music has been an integral part of my world, playing a major role in both my personal and professional life. I embrace the chance to be immersed in it, to share my enthusiasm for and expertise in the area of the music education experience, promoting creative development and student performance skills.

Daniel K. Virginia Beach, VA

I have 25 years of Music Theory training and have taught myself to play the guitar, ukulele, banjo, and the cello. I teach introductory guitar and aim to make those early years on the instrument - fun! I give my guitar students a well-rounded introduction to music theory so that they too may explore different types of instruments as they grow in their musical abilities.

I primarily teach from the Hal Leonard series - one that I believe does a great job of introducing guitar students to note reading (as they learn to pick) and various levels of chords (for strumming). I have specialized in helping students transition from one instrument to another. I have been known to teach both piano and guitar to the same student at the same time...helping them to see the connections between the two.

About Daniel

New to the Virginia Beach area, I have 6 years of professional teaching experience and 25 years experience as a performer. I combine these skills to teach music in a way that prepares students to reach their musical goals.

Although I have a passion for music, my day job is as an environmental scientist. I have a long history of teach math and science with non-profits and at the college level. I offer tutoring services for multiple levels of math and science.

Each lesson will involve a review of assigned work from the previous lesson and the introduction of new concept and work to reinforce it. Aside from lesson book assignments I work with the student to choose special solo pieces that we can work on together.

My 6 year old daughter loves her piano lessons!

Karen R. Virginia Beach, VA

Guitar lessons are tailored to the individual student. Young children I teach music fundamentals and reading along with chords and popular music. Adults are goal oriented and generally know what they want to play.

I would love to teach some contemporary Christian music!

About Karen

Hello and thanks for checking out my, 'I love me' paragraph ; ).

But really this is about YOU. It's about how my teaching and life experiences may help you along your personal musical journey.

I've learned a great deal in my 20 years of teaching;

- patience
- persistence
- keep it fun
- change it up

It's my belief that music fundamentals are critical and we will create a solid musical foundation by learning the language, understanding the critical issues of timing & rhythm, and reading.

I enjoy working with all ages but specialize in children and adults that act like children!

Stay a child! Learn something new.

What are you waiting for?!

Rachel G. Hampton, VA

I have a music performance degree (violin) from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and have been playing guitar since 1996. I have taught many students since 2002, including some with learning or physical disabilities. I love teaching, and I'm a patient and encouraging teacher (if I may say so myself!), with an effective, fun, and relaxed teaching style. Call me today--we will get you playing some great music!

About Rachel

Hi, there! My name is Rachel, and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2002, and have loved helping my students learn to read and play, discover their own love of music, and conquer their fears of performing (so much "proud mama bear" happening!). In 2003, I earned my violin performance degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I also studied piano and vocal pedagogy. I'm an encouraging and fun person to work with (if I may say so myself!), and my teaching style is fun, positive, and relaxed. I have worked with many students, including some with learning disabilities, physical limitations, PTSD, and just plain ol' stage fright! I work with you to set your own goals, and I look forward to helping you reach them... ...

I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. I am 68 now so it’s about time. I saw Rachel’s ad and decided to give it a try. She is very knowledgeable and the lessons are actually fun and the time goes by quickly. I am glad that I called her. I like taking lessons from someone who performs.
