About Daniela
Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you!
I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students discover the beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles of music, express their feelings and emotions on this wonderful instrument makes me really happy. My students range from people who simply want to learn how to play proficiently as a hobby to students who are considering making music their future career.
I strongly believe that a chance to go on a big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of people, makes a big difference in children's lives: teaches them self control, gives them great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Taking part in festivals and piano competitions helps
with building high self esteem even more.
I look forward to helping you and your children to reach your goals!

Daniela is great. As an adult learner, I need flexibility of scheduling sometimes and of course, a lot of patience. Daniela always makes our sessions fun even when I am struggling through a piece. She is a great teacher and musician. I really enjoy our lessons and she has really helped me see progress.

After my first lesson with Daniela I knew she was the perfect instructor. She was very patient but didn't let you slide when you messed something up. That means a lot as an adult learning to play. If you are looking for an instructor, look no further than Daniela.

I could hear a difference in my son's playing within the first lesson. The lesson just ended and my son is already looking forward to lesson two, thanks to Jonny's combination of expertise, enthusiasm, patience and encouragement.

About Sammy
Hi! I am a guitarist, vocalist, and beatboxer looking to help others get started with guitar (but I can throw in beatboxing tips too!!).

When I was 13, after tearing my way through the Guitar Hero franchise, my brother suggested I give the real instrument a shot. I used my saved up cash to buy a guitar, learn every Red Hot Chili Peppers song I possibly could, form a band, and jam endlessly.

As a player, I've faced what every new student of the instrument has: turbulent confidence, inconsistency with motivation, tendencies to stick with what's comfortable and avoid what is scary or could potentially lead to failure, etc. Eventually, I began to realize that music, guitar, and artistic expression were absolutely essential in my life to be happy, and I couldn't put down my guitar from that day forward. That fundamental hunger to express
is something I really hope to bring out in others as I help them get started with their personal guitar journey, whether they have musical experience or not.

As a teacher, I taught beginner acoustic guitar extensively as a summer camp counselor at Camp Eagle Ridge leadership camp (co-ed, ages 7-17). I'm especially experienced in working with kids, but I also have experience working with adults. Do note that I'm willing to teach to students that want to learn electric guitar, as well as those who want to learn acoustic.

Whether you enjoy listening to rock, funk, blues, hip-hop, indy, country, metal, or anything else, I guarantee I share a few favorite artists and a passion on some level. I hope to create a lesson plan that is personalized to what you like!

Please note that at this time I'm only looking to teach beginners or people bridging the gap between beginner and intermediate. Reach out if you have any questions. Looking forward to getting started!

I have picked up and put down the guitar more times than I can count in my life. No one has gotten me further in my skill set than Sammy. To start, he’s very concrete in his teaching style. He helps me set specific, realistic goals and tailors his lessons around meeting them- both in the short and long term. Above being an incredibly skilled guitarist, he is a very clear communicator. He is able to clearly talk me through where I am and the rationale in how we’re going to get me to where I want to be. Above all, and I can’t empahsize this enough, Sammy “gets” the human element. He helps me work through inevitable frustrations and difficulties, while being very vocal in his praise when I hit a milestone. Sammy REALLY cares about my success, which has made me even more invested in learning. I could not recommend Sammy more, as both a guitarist and as a great guy. Thank you Sammy!

Sammy was prompt and very personable. I was very happy with how he customized the lesson to help meet my end goal in learning to play a specific song. He gave me enough to work on my own during the week. I look forward to the next lesson in fine tuning what I’ve learned and in learning a little bit more. Thanks, Sammy!

5 Things We Learned About Kurt Cobain from Montage of Heck
This month, HBO released a new documentary about Kurt Cobain's life called Montage of Heck.
