I believe that to write their best songs one must live their best life.
My lessons are very catered to the student's needs. I can teach the theory and techniques of song structure, lyric, melody, harmony, rhythm, groove, sound selection, music production, vocal intonation, audio recording, and music production. I can also speak conceptually to help deepen concept, improve cohesiveness, or simply advise on inspiration and creativity.
I specialize in Pop, Electronic, Indie, and Hip-Hop.

I am a songwriter of 10 years and a music producer of 5.
I value honest art of all types. Music holds the highest place in my heart for its ability to conjure emotion and to express the inexpressible.
I graduated from Chapman University with a degree in Public Relations and Advertising and a minor in Entrepreneurship and am currently a student at Icon Collective.

If you're serious about music production, I would certainly recommend taking lessons with Dan.+ Read More
