I’m happy to announce that I’m finally able to accept students in my little home studio!

I’ve been teaching drums for about 20 or so years, on and off. At one time I had more than 30 students during my stint as the drum instructor for Crossroads Music, a mid-sized music store in Monrovia, Ca. I’ve taught experienced and in-experienced drummers, both young and old, and have therefore developed methods of quickly improving the skills of my students across a wide spectrum of abilities. My studio features a dual student/teacher drum set-up, which I’ve found is most effective for communicating and demonstrating ideas during the course of a lesson. In addition, I have a large collection of books and DVDs that are a valuable resources in the process of teaching.

I performed with Daniel on cruise ships and took lessons from him as well. As a fellow musician, I respect and admire Daniel's ability to perform a vast variety of music styles, his professional demeanor during performance, and his passion for his instrument. Lessons were great with Daniel, he really helped me adapt to a new instrument and it was fun working on different styles.

Daniel is a great teacher and performer! I was able to take lessons with him in CA and got to see him play at San Diego Indie fest. Very enthusiastic, talented and dedicated.

It was a great experience to have Daniel teach me the drums! For someone who did not have any previous know how, he made me feel relaxed and he had so much patience! Check him out!!

I definitely recommend everyone go see Daniel for drum lessons! He was a super fun teacher, but still patient and made me feel very comfortable. Not to mention he made learning a breeze. Thanks for making me a better musician Daniel! :)

Daniel is the man! I've always wanted to learn how to play the drums, and finally found the time in my life to pursue it. Daniel took the time to walk me through the basics and made sure each step made sense to me. I never once felt judged or ashamed of my lack skill. You can see he thoroughly enjoys teaching his passion and makes each session fun. I'll be coming back twice a week from now on!

I was a student of Daniel's when he taught in Portland, and he was a great teacher to work with. He has a relaxed teaching style that makes learning new music enjoyable. Disappointed he left the west coast. Great teacher. Awesome guy.

Daniel is an excellent instructor. He really takes the time to go over proper technique and I never feel discouraged. His range of styles is impressive and it’s opened up new doors for me musically. I recommend him highly.
