Daniel B.

Fort Mill, SC

About Daniel

Hi, there! My name is Daniel and I can't wait to meet you! I love music, and have played the piano since I was 6 years old. I was one of those kids who loved to practice. I am passionate about teaching and love imparting the techniques, wisdom, and practicality that I was taught to my students. I understand that every student learns differently and I cater each lesson to the individual student. I use a combination of fun games, unique teaching techniques, and electronic aids to adequately teach each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano students should provide an piano with a full set of
88 keys (acoustical or digital is fine). I will provide metronome and any other teaching aides that may be used during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in sacred with a proficiency in hymn improvisation. I also am proficient in classical teaching.
