Pays attention to detail, clear teaching and instructions, and finds alternative solutions and/or explanations to reinforce learning.
Dillon
Very clear explanations, and I left the first lesson with good goals and a handful of things to practice. Having the lesson online worked out very well and didn't take away from the experience or efficient use of time at all.
Levi C.
I am an adult beginner in my 30's and was a little nervous about starting my lessons. However, I have to say, great lesson! He really took the time to listen to what I wanted to work on and make recommendations. Then he was able to quickly spot areas for improvement and give corrections that were very relatable and easy to understand. I can't wait to keep working with Daniel.

I want students to excel the fastest they can on guitar. Though I know it is important to let students learn at their own pace, I will never cease to challenge them through difficult pieces or exercises. I will develop plans and keep track of progress so that students and I can stay organized and ensure the learning is fluent. I will direct lessons based on what the student wants to learn most and what genres of music they are interested in. I also change the structure of lessons based on how the student learns. The basics I want students to learn from my lessons are basic chords, fretboard knowledge and music theory, finger-picking styles, pick and strumming techniques, left-hand techniques, and most importantly I want to teach students how to listen. I will train students ears through ear training exercises and songs. I firmly believe the better the student’s ears can get, the better the musician they can be. Besides just teaching songs, I want students to understand the theory, ...

We are so happy that we finally found a trained musician to teach my 13 yo son. Now my husband and I are taking lessons from William also. I feel that I finally have found the key to open up my music talent! Lol. William is very dedicated teacher and musician. He is skillful and he knows exactly what his students can do to make progress. Our time with him is very productive. If you want your kids to enjoy learning guitar in an encouraging environment, William is a great instructor. His time is valuable and he makes it worth your time.

William is a great teacher so far. He is also a pleasant person and very flexible with schedule and teaching style to meet students' needs.

My son and husband are taking lessons from William. I am so pleased that we have found a true musician., they seem to learn a lot in a few short lessons. My son starts to teach me guitar. His method makes the lesson easy for me to learn. His enthusiasm makes learning fun and 20 minutes lesson tolerable. I start to like my son more! William has changed my boy after only 2 lessons!

"Seriously, though. the best teacher ever. the efficiency in which he hammers out the lesson and ear to catch me immediately when I am not on point and turn me around left me feeling somewhat dizzy. because, like whoa. he covered more relevant (quantity and quality) material in 45ish minutes at his place than in a year of musicianship sections @ UCLA. and at about $10k cheaper.

felt like getting a one-on-one with a highly esteemed professor, only he's a punk in Brooklyn with bangle bracelets up to his elbow and leather(?) pants. to be more articulate: he is an artist. and he didn't even get weird."
