Guitar · In studio

Daniel is not only an amazing and versatile guitarist, but he is also a great teacher. He really focuses in on what you specifically want to work on, and completely caters the lesson to you. He is very patient and works from the ground up. He knows many technique exercises that helped me very much. I would recommend Daniel as a teacher to anyone trying to do anything with guitar.
