I am offering progressive instruction on nylon/classical guitar using pick style and hybrid combo of fingers for harmonization. I cover improvisation and original composition and songwriting. Essential scales, chords, theory and exercises are topics we examine in an effort to develop proper (classical) technique and to stress originality and stylistic development.

I cover a hybrid mix of classical, Latin, blues and progressive fusion. I was formerly the guitarist of No Dust Records (Holland based) label, progressive metal band, Waricide. In addition I have studied formerly classical guitar and Jazz while in College as a previous music major. I have an AA, BA and MA degrees in various disciplines and have lived and performed in Europe, Canada and various States in the US.

As I said in my profile, I play all styles and so I teach all styles. This is an important point as many teachers only teach classical and if you want to learn a song by Sam Smith, the Beatles or perhaps something from "Frozen", they'll say 'buy the sheet music'. I teach music theory (after the fundamentals of music are learned) and if the student desires, he or she can learn how to improvise. This does not mean jazz necessarily, but learning to elaborate on a dull sheet music arrangement.

I live in a private community in Clifton. N.J. David has performed for us on occasion at our clubhouse. I would consider him a master at the piano . He played a variety of music for us and it was received and enjoyed by all. He has a wonderful personality and patience as well which combined would make a wonderful teacher.
Roxanna H.
Our girls really enjoy their lessons with Mr. David. He is very patient and encouraging. They always come back very happy and excited to go for more lessons. You will not regret. He is really one of the best. My oldest one who has been with two other teachers before and can play well, says she is finally understanding some concepts that she had trouble with in the past. She is finally getting it with Mr. David. Our youngest one is progressing so fast....today was only their third lesson. So happy to have found him...and yes, we went by the reviews..all were so true about him. Thank you, Mr. David.

Real nice guy and talented. He takes the time to see what I know and what I want to learn. Great suggestions and I feel like I can grow as a musician with him

Using a Kodaly based approach, students will learn to identify melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic elements and ultimately to be able to read music from written notation.

Ear training encompasses perceiving how sounds are moving so that it can be sung, notated, or played back. Conversely, training the ear enables one to mentally hear notated music in advance of playing it. This valuable skill speeds all aspects of musical learning.

I want to help you reach your musical goals, while having fun in the process! I have been fortunate enough to work full time as a professional performer/educator since obtaining a degree in Jazz Performance from Temple University in 2014. I am very active on the music scene, and as an educator in the NYC area, with over 7 years of private teaching experience.

I firmly believe that lessons should be catered towards the unique musical goals of the individual. I take pride in finding new ways to teach proper fundamentals and habits in new students, that will ensure long-term success on their instrument and allow them to have fun along the way.

I can offer lessons in both English and Spanish. Lessons can be 30, 45, or 60 minutes. Contact me for more info!!

Smithaziah C.
Daniel has been an amazing guitar instructor. I have taken 5 lessons only and I can already play a whole melody and tune the guitar . I have taken an online class as well when I couldn’t make it onsite. Daniel has taken encouraged me to practice all along and has take out time to answered my questions out of class schedule. I am definitely purchasing more classes. Best guitar teacher. I absolutely recommend.
