Outstanding vocal instructor. Genuine. Extremely professional. Tracks your progress. I don't feel like just another student. Coaches on all aspects of singing...performance, pitch, quality of tone, story telling. I would recommend Dan to anyone who is serious about improving their singing and performance.
Dan is extremely patient and has a deep understanding of the human voice, which he communicates very well. Dan completely changed my approaching to singing and his exercises and coaching greatly improved my ability to use my diaphragm and engage my vocal chords. There is no comparison in the quality of my singing when I started compared to now. As a guitar player, I wanted to be able to train my voice to complement my playing. He helped me go from a beginner who was always nervous about singing, to feeling comfortable singing in front of others.
I love Dan. I have taken singing lessons before but he is by far the best teacher I have ever had. He wants me to be my best and will do whatever it takes to get me there. It has only been 5 weeks but I feel I have gone farther than I have ever been with any other teacher.
