Daniel is more than just a guitar teacher, his intimate kowledge of an array of instruments, makes his approach to teaching Guitar more immersive to the student without confusing them. His approach is simple and effective, allowing the student to feel comfortable in their abilities and safe in the teaching environment. Daniel’s passion for teaching as well as learning instruments allows him to connect to the student and get them excited to learn. Daniel’s background in various musical groups and organizations allows him to understand how students may feel the first day of teaching and how to relate the music to their age and goals. Daniel also understand the importance of breaks and stretching between practicing and lessons. Daniel not only teaches students how to play their pieces but how to properly relax hands and take mental breaks throughout the lessons and during practice. Daniel’s motto isn’t just to teach Guitar but to really involve the student in all aspects of learning guitar, getting the student to engage in the pieces, teaching them how to properly warm up before and after pieces, and how to stretch and approach difficult pieces by allowing mental breaks and keeping the environment light and fun.

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.
