Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Hi there, I'm Dan. I've been playing guitar as my main instrument for 16 years, as well as Bass, Ukulele, Piano, and Vocals. Music is my passion, and I cannot imagine a better way of devoting my time than spreading the gift of this amazing craft.

I've been giving one-on-one musical instruction since 2012, beginning at the Oceanside School of Music and then transitioning to private lessons. I pride myself on the ability to cater each lesson to every student's individual needs, tastes, and goals. Someone once told me, "the goal of the teacher is to make themselves obsolete," and I couldn't agree more. Whether you've never picked up a guitar before or want to perfect your already advanced technique, I'll be here to make sure you achieve your goals and have fun learning.

About Daniel

I am a working performer, singer-songwriter, and guitar player. I currently am the songwriter and frontman of a regularly gigging band and have been leading this project since 2014. I have years of extensive jazz and music theory training on guitar and bass. Hi there, I'm Dan and I hope to

The first visit was great! Daniel was very patient and kind. He asked Adan about his interests and planned with him how they would proceed with the future lessons. He even gave him homework! Adan is happy to do it and he said he could not wait for his next lesson.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

My students will have the opportunity to learn music theory and perform their favorite songs from any genre in my lessons. Throughout my 27 years of playing the guitar and 17 years of teaching it, I have learned that patience and practice are what defines a great guitarist. During my lessons, the student will not be rushed, and they will not feel uncomfortable nor nervous in my setting. Overall, their time will be used effectively when they are with me. Understanding is one aspect, but practice completes the process. A student has to practice at home as well. They will be provided practice sheets or online exercises to help them achieve that effectively.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I'm a guitarist and educator based out of Raleigh, NC. I received training at the University of South Carolina (Bachelors of Music, 2011) and East Carolina University (Masters of Music, 2015). I am an active performer in the Triangle area, drawing inspiration from American roots music, classical, and jazz traditions.

I have seen hundreds of students over ten years of private teaching, working with beginner to advanced students of all age levels. I teach in a wide range of styles, and I specialize in classical guitar and flatpicking (bluegrass/old time).

I hope to help you along as you grow as a musician and a guitarist!

My son and husband have been taking lessons with Brad for 6 weeks. They are thrilled with him and they have both made a lot of progress. Brad is the first teacher that has inspired my son to actually practice between lessons. :) He is highly recommended.

I've taken lessons with Emi as a beginner and later as a more experienced guitarist. Always a great lesson. He's a fantastic teacher for people of any experience level. He goes out of his way to tailor his lessons to whatever you specifically want to learn.
Will
I've been trying to teach myself to play the guitar for months now, and I learned more with Emiliano in 2 lessons than I did in those months. If you really want to learn to play, get a lesson with Emiliano. It is worth it. He makes things easy to understand, and was super patient with me who has zero musical talent. I really cannot recommend him enough.
Matthew
Emiliano is a fantastic teacher. I knew little to nothing about guitar before working with him and he was able to easily walk me through everything. Thanks Emiliano!

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

"I have no idea what I'm getting into when I first register for the class. Mrs. Hanaa was one of the instructor that have great reviews and a good price rate. Everyone who have reviewed her probably mention how closely she work with her student and how she allow them to learn in their own pace. I totally agree and she also provide a great atmosphere that allow the student excited to learn. If other review does not convince you to choose her, I hope this one will."

"Started with Jeff in January 2015 - I had tinkered off & on with guitar for about 50 years, could play a little folky stuff & bluegrass rhythm guitar but not well, never took lessons before and hadn't played much for about 40 years. Jeff started off by hearing what I could do (not much!) and went from there, mainly with rock stuff. He is a walking encyclopedia, patient, unpretentious and I have made a lot of progress and continue to feel better about it every week. I actually am inspired to practice! I would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to learn. 5 stars!"

"Although I was forced to select a subject of Acoustic Guitar on the review form, my children and I have also taken lessons with Mel Parker on every subject in the pick list plus a few more. Theory, composition, recording. Improvisation techniques, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo, violin, bass, mandolin, ear training, techniques applied to all music genre's, group and solo performance techniques, ETC! The main point here is that as an accomplished and talented musician, Mel Parker is fluent in the music industry and very skilled at teaching all skill levels, from beginner to pro. He can teach very rigid focused lessons or he can shift and adjust the lesson instantly to meet the needs of the student. My children have been able to explore and experiment different instruments, genre's and other areas of the music industry as their interests grew and changed over the years. They have had many changes in their interests but the one constant has been the TEACHER! It is wonderful to be able to have 1 teacher adjust his education for the ever changing and growing needs of my family. Both of my children are now very accomplished award winning performers and we all agree that Mel Parker has been/is the primary influencer in their accomplishments."
