About Daniel A.

In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Guitar, Singing, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording and engineering almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our current day and age. *** Lesson Details *** Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor. *** Studio Equipment *** Acoustic and Electric piano, Digital Recording Studio, Extensive library and teaching resources *** Specialties *** *Teachers marked as a Student Has taught a minimum of 25 lessons and has received the highest feedback rating from students.Jazz Piano, Composition, Choral

Great teacher. He has patience and so much knowledge. Lessons are going well, I've made more progress in 3 meetings than I did in months with my previous teacher.

My son had his first guitar lesson with Daniel and he LOVED it. He's asked me every day since if we get to go back today. This is an incredible win for me, because he never wants to go anywhere that doesn't have video games.

I've been really struggling to get myself back into playing seriously. I was so nervous reaching out to ask for help, but signing up for lessons with Dan is seriously the best decision I've made! He's got a great approach, really pushes you to believe in yourself, which is huge for me! He's professional, easy going, and easy to get in touch with, but he's also holding me accountable. Something which I definitely need! Just all around a positive experience!
