My primary instrument - I believe piano (and the music theory that comes with it) is one of the best instruments to prepare a student to pursue ALL types of music! I teach a variety of styles and am a certified Mayron Cole instructor. I have specialized in teaching students who are ready for it - how to read guitar chords on the piano and learn the basic of improvisation - something I had to learn on my own...but I have adapted into my teaching curriculum.
About Daniel K.

I have 9 years of professional teaching experience and 28 years experience as a performer. I combine these skills to teach music in a way that prepares students to reach their musical goals. Although I have a passion for music, my day job is as an environmental scientist. I have a long history of teaching math and science with non-profits and at the college level. I offer tutoring services for multiple levels of math and science. *** Lesson Details *** Each lesson will involve a review of assigned work from the previous lesson and the introduction of new concept and work to reinforce it. Aside from lesson book assignments I work with the student to choose special solo pieces that we can work on together. *** Studio Equipment *** Roland Digital Upright Piano Yamaha Keyboard Electric Guitar Acoustic Guitar 5-String Banjo *** Travel Equipment *** Yamaha Keyboard w/stand Yamaha Acoustic Guitar *** Specialties *** Music Theory Piano Introductory Guitar Introductory Song Wriitng

Daniel has been amazing for my now 9 -year-old daughter's guitar lessons. He is professional, yet friendly and comfortable. My daughter has already learned so much just 5 lessons in. I love being able to have someone come to my home and having Daniel has made it even easier. My shy daughter is at ease with him.

My 6 year old daughter loves her piano lessons! My 6 year old daughter has been taking weekly, in-home piano lessons with Dan for several months now. Dan is great at keeping her focused, while making it fun. She has already learned so much from him, and she looks forward to her lesson every week. Dan is very professional and punctual. We have been very happy with his teaching, and highly recommend him!
