Commit to learning classical guitar with a teacher who has over 30 years of experience
I believe music lessons should be fun and engaging for students. I am excited to take you to the next level, whether you are an absolute beginner, intermediate, or advanced student. If you are interested in learning classical guitar, rock, jazz, heavy metal, or polka!
About Daniel E.

Teaching Background: * I have a record of success with students of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and goals * I teach using a variety of methods and styles, including my own authored books * I owned a music academy for 10 years where I trained others to be successful instructors * I have a very high student retention rate * I've been playing 30 years * I have a Degree in Music from Florida State University * I have been teaching professionally for over 20 years Background as a Musician: * I have played in bands, duos, and as a solo artist. * I play gigs professionally as a working musician. * I grew up playing rock and blues. I studied classical guitar in school, and I also play some jazz and metal. * I play electric, acoustic, nylon/fingerstyle, etc. * I play classical guitar, blues, bluegrass, rock, metal, jazz, country, etc. * I also write music, classical composition, singer-songwriter, and more improvisational styles as well. * I'm into theory: Improv, Chord/Scale relationships, analyzing songs, etc. *** Lesson Details *** I customize the lessons to the goals of each student. Whether it's for fun and leisure or a driven passion with serious goals, I can give you the tools to accomplish what you want! I love teaching people through the music that they love. So, whether that's Britney Spears, Metallica, or Bach, the concepts underlying music are basically the same. I will make sure you can play the music you love and hopefully help you explore new music as well. *** Specialties *** For all the advanced knowledge I have and years of teaching students of all kinds, my favorite is teaching beginners. I love seeing someone come in with no knowledge of music, and taking them from milestone to milestone. I love watching new musicians blossom. I play, teach, and perform most frequently in classical, rock, blues, and pop genres.

Dan is a top notch teacher, he develops a plan specific to you and what you're interested in (styles, what you want out of the instrument, etc.). In addition to this, he has very good technique and knowledge of the guitar.

Great lesson! Daniel was patient, upbeat, and gave very understandable explanations. We covered quite a bit of ground at a pace that kept it all easy to handle. Now it's time to practice!
