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.

Guitar · In home

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!
