About Daniel M.

Danny has been teaching guitar privately for the last decade in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita areas, as well as online. His background and experience give him a unique perspective as a guitar teacher. Born and raised in San Diego, he started playing music when he joined the beginning band in middle school on saxophone. Several instruments, years, and ensembles later, he began studying music at Palomar College before moving to Los Angeles, where he graduated from Cal State Northridge with a Bachelor of Music in Classical Guitar Performance. This unique background sets him apart from most guitarists, as he already had extensive musical training and experience before he began playing guitar.

He has played in many types of groups as a guitarist, from bands playing the Viper Room to classical groups on historical tours. In his spare time he enjoys running, video games, and movies. He is currently recording AHTCKs first full-length album.

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!

I haven't played my guitar in years and never really learned how to play. I wanted to try it again. Daniel was an excellent teacher! He is very knowledgeable about music and the guitar. He is also nice and patient. I enjoyed my lesson, learned a lot, and look forward to the next one. Gold star! I highly recommend Daniel.

Bass Guitar

Daniel gave me several lesson on my bass guitar when I started playing a few years back. He was very informative and very professional in giving lessons to me! He helped me on changing my strings and gave me lessons on proper technique on playing the bass!
