I am super excited to teach people who want to learn piano to write songs or compositions (songs without words), or to just play along with your favorite tunes. I’m super flexible when it comes to what style of music we use to learn to play, because at the end of the day it had to BE FUN or you won’t stick with it. I began learning piano by playing music from my favorite video games. Whatever works!!

I’m a state-licensed music educator who has been teaching for years. I teach full time, love what I do, and care about who I teach. Join me, won’t you?

About Daniel H.

I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught myself to play guitar because I wanted to perform songs while singing, and because I started to feel silly playing air guitar in front of the mirror in my room while singing along to my favorite songs.

Now, I'm a full-time licensed music teacher, a manager and singer for a choir that records video game soundtracks, and an online teacher. I really enjoy using people's interests to teach them instead of relying on the same old repertoire for every student. If it's not fun, you won't want to keep learning after all! I look forward to learning about you, your musical goals, and the kind of music that inspires you to play/sing!

For prospective Wordpress students: I have been creating websites since middle school and currently own and operate a profitable website (vgmacademy.com). I love building sites and teaching others how to build sites themselves. Whether your focus is personal in nature or you’re looking to create a website for your business, I can help.
