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.

About Kathleen

For the last 40 plus years, I have taught children as young as 3 and adults as old as ahh they won't tell me! 'I have been participating in band and musical programs for over 30 years in the Kansas City Area. I am activity in a brass octet called the "Joyful Sound Brass Ensemble". We play at nursing home, churches, and other function in and around our area. I began my musical training when I was 5. I started on a small 12 bass accordion and loved it. I moved up to the full size accordions when I was 6 years old and it was as big as I was! I wanted to learn more, so my mom took pity on me and pulled out her alto saxophone for me when I was 8. My love of music grew more with each instrument I learned. With the help ...

Kathy is a wonderful teacher

My son is 9 and has been taking lessons with Kathy for about 5 months. We started him on lessons right after the instrument "try it" day the summer prior to him starting band. He went into the try it day wanting to play drums and ended up changing his mind to play flute! He didn't know anything about the flute or how to read music when he started and she had him going in not time. My wife and I are both band nerds and highly recommend Kathy for any instrument instruction needs. She has always been wonderful at meeting our son's needs and adjusting her lessons as needed to meet the needs of my son.

Always looked forward to lessons with Heidi!

Heidi was my favorite voice teacher in college. I liked her so much that I requested her, as my coach, until graduation. I didn't major in voice, but her passion for music is contagious. Out of all the voice coaches I have had, her teaching skills improved the most. She is adept at helping her student's pick material that is challenging but works well with an individual's voice. Her personality is amiable and she genuinely cares about her student's improvement. I highly recommend Heidi as a voice coach.

I never thought anyone and I mean anyone could get me past the fear of singing. I have over three decades of acting, including a prestigous acting school, but never developed confidence in singing. Thomas taught me. He helped me develop my new voice. Wow! Thank you sir!

Tom is a most excellent vocal instructor

Tom is a wonderful teacher. He is always cheerful and encouraging and positive. He searches for the best selections to match my voice. He helps me work toward the best I can be and doesn't let me "settle" for anything less. Best of all, he is so fun to be with.

Piano Lessons

I started taking piano lessons from Dr Garrison in August 0f 2012. He has taught me about music notes and all their meanings. I started as a beginner with no musical knowledge or background. I am 56 and with Dr Garrison teaching method, knowledge and education he's given me the understanding I need to continue to learn from his instructions. Any questionsed that I have he has an answer for and each problem I have he solves each and everytime. I started my first lesson with an old keyboard I brought at a yard sale, but never used it. Since I have been under the instructions of Dr Garrison I have brought a Baldwin piano without any hesitation. I truly know with his teaching method/instructions that I will continue to learn something new at each lesson.

Victor is very patient, with us. He is nice and a very good teacher. We have had Victor as our teacher for about 8-9 months now and we have improved so much.
