Experience

Guitar Instructor
Jun 2010 - Present
City of Long Beach Parks and Recreation

I've taught group lessons for the City of Long Beach for many years now. Classes have included Beginning Guitar for Children, Beginning Guitar for Adults, and Intermediate Guitar for Adults.

In my classes we've covered everything from the names of the guitar strings to pentatonic scales for awesome guitar solos.

My classes are always filled with music and laughter.

Steel Drum and Percussion Ensemble Director
Sep 2006 - Present
St. Joseph High School

I've worked with High School-age students in Caribbean Steel Drum bands and Percussion Ensembles. Usually, my students walk in the door with no experience whatsoever.

We perform several concerts each year. In 2015, we performed at Religious Education Congress; our concert was simulcast world-wide!

Always encouraging, Dan will make learning guitar easy. He takes you from strumming a few notes in the first week of class into an actually making recognizable tunes by the end of a few weeks of instruction. In the beginning, Dan offers just enough music theory to make since of why we are learning the few beginning anchor chords. As with any new skill, practice outside of the classroom makes for a better skill set. Even without the amount of practice I should have come to class with, Dan's patience and encouragement had me actually playing music and provided me with the tools to practice on my own. I defiantly will be taking his intermediate class in the future.
