*** Lesson Details ***
Students can except a stress free learning process. After learning the basic symbols of music notation, breathing, and simple rhythms the students will continue learning the techniques and fingerings on their chosen instrument. After mastering these basic concepts in music the children will then be given a chance to perform their songs to an instrumental accompaniment. This is good for the student who does not play in an ensemble to have the opportunity to play and listen to other moving parts.

*** Specialties ***

My method utilizes maracas and rhythm guitar, played Simultaneously to produce a full ensemble effect.

Daniel is an excellent music teacher! It is apparent that he is learned and passionate about his field. He relates to my teen very well. Only regret is not finding him sooner.

I must say that Mr Daniel is doing a very good job. This was my third lesson, and he is not going through a set program but is teaching me where I'm at. So he is eliminating any waste time.
I will rate Mr. Daniel with 5 stars
*****GREAT JOB*****

Daniel is a excellent instructor. He's very patience, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I cant wait for our next lesson to learn some more. I tried on my own and was going to give up but Daniel has shown me that I can learn to play bass.

My son enjoyed his lessons with Daniel. He appreciated how he was challenged at each session and always looked forward to next lesson.

We will definitely request Daniel again in the future.

Exceeds Expectations

Mr. Daniel not only teaches the art, but perfects your technique. My son is enjoying his lessons.

What I like about Daniel, is that he knows his music and he really takes his time with you while showing you how to make music ... He is patience with you so you can learn without pressure ...

I have been very impressed with Daniel teaching style...I am learning just as much as my daughter about music notes just sitting in on her session. Daniel is very organized and precise. Thank You Daniel.

He's an excellent teacher. He's very patient. I sat in on two of the lessons and I really liked how he was patient with Daniel and he really took time to show him. He understood his age and really appreciated that.

Something great!

I want to give huge KUDOS to Daniel for the awesome experience I am having as his student. I had taken piano lessons years ago and just couldn't seem to get things to "click". But with Daniel's patience and easy-going personality, it's like "something great" has taken place. I finally feel confident about my future in music and am now able to grasp the material that is being presented to me. Thanks Daniel!You are FABULOUS!!

Daniel is a wonderful teacher. Every week my son looks forward to his piano lessons. Daniel takes his time and makes sure my son is understanding everything. I enjoy seeing the interaction between the two of them.
