- Teaches students:
- and Ages 7 to 90
- Teaching since:
- August 2010
I am available for lessons in your home, my home studio in Newhall, and online lessons worldwide. I have been playing guitar for over 13 years and teaching music since 2010. I teach all experience levels from beginner to advanced on electric, acoustic, and classical guitar.
Lesson are planned around goals the student sets. I also make sure students are taught proper technique, music reading, and ear-training, . My goal as a teacher is to help the student become a well rounded musician who plays guitar.
Popular artists from several genres that I have experience with range from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse, The White Stripes, The Black Keys to Megadeth ,Metallica, Iron Maiden, Guns N' Roses, Pantera to Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Pick Floyd, and of course the list goes on. Personal guitar influences are John Frusciante and Marty Friedman.
I attended California State University Northridge where I earned a B.A. in Music Performance on Classical Guitar. When I can I still attend concerts and master classes given by premiere guitarists. I have been to master classes by revered musicians such as Paul O'Dette, Pepe Romero, and David Russell.
Lessons are scheduled to best fit to the student's schedule when possible.

My son really looks forward to his lesson with Daniel. The method Daniel uses is working. My son is taking on-line lessons and in just a few lessons he's learned a lot. Daniel is very understanding and explain things clearly.
Daniel is an excellent teacher! Very proffesional, skilled and patient.. He's been teaching my son guitar lessons for about 4 months now and we couldn't be happier with the results!
Wow! I love Daniel's approach to teaching, he was able to explain things in a way that made sense. After a few session he addressed a few issues I was having and setup plan that allowed me overcoming those struggles. Not only have I improved, im feeling more confident as a guitarist. I'm very excited to continue learning with Daniel as my teacher and I highly recommend him!+ Read More
