Hi, I'm Danny. I am the founding guitarist for the band Rott. I am awesome and so are you! I love guitar and teaching you how to play, write and best of all have fun while you learn!! That's why we're here. I have been playing since 1981 and teaching since 1983 with a focus on rock guitar and acoustic guitar. My songs are on the radio, in movies, and in music magazines. I will show you, don't worry :) Learn from someone who cares about you, and loves teaching music.
*** Lesson Details ***
Learn Guitar Step-By-Step by Starting Off With One of 3 Levels:
The Styles I Know Best Are:
I know that music lessons can either be fun or not, so why not go with fun right?
I am a "laid back" teacher and fun to learn from.
Why stress, it's music :)
A lesson from me encompasses techniques for remembering and building a foundation for the future.
After 3 to 6 months, you should expect to be playing some of your favorite songs and artists accurately and be able to write some of your own basic songs.
I let you decide how fast you want to learn and will not make you memorize things that are not going to help you be successful. (you can if you want too, it's ok) I have real world experience and I know what works on stage and in the studio. You will learn in months instead of years.
I will teach you cool tricks for developing your own unique style and signature sound to your music. Plus, you will learn things like stage presence too for those who aspire to play live. Best of all we have fun!

Amazing Teacher, learned things quickly!
Dan taught me the basics first and made sure I knew them well, such as chords and how to hold the guitar and how to take care of it properly. Then we worked on beginners songs and practiced them a lot. After the basics were down we worked on what song I wanted to know. Then we worked to attain that goal.
