****BOOK NOW FOR NEW STUDENTS GETTING GUITARS FOR HOLIDAYS!**** Skype lessons now avail at any open lesson in perso time, same rate as at my home studio without the gas costs! FYI I am a 30+ clean cut, non smoking guitarist who has sold 8,000 + recordings along with performing 1200+ paid live performances over the last 15+ years of my original music. I also happen to teach guitar lessons. I have weekly time slots available to teach Guitar Lessons/absolute beginners-intermediate-advanced.

I do things a bit different than your "average" guitar teacher. I teach YOU a real song on your introductory very first lesson. I allow you to choose an easy rock, pop, country or folk song that YOU WANT TO LEARN on 1st lesson so that YOU ARE MOTIVATED TO PRACTICE! :)

Don't waste your time with the "Do it yourself" song books and "Mary Had a Little Lamb" etc. or useless scales you don't need to know , yet............ FAST TRACK with me.

I have education in College Level Music Theory

· Acoustic Guitar · In home My first lesson with Daniel was a great experience. I am looking forward to my next lesson and progressing in my guitar playing!

· Acoustic Guitar · In studio Daniels method of teaching is perfect for me. I just want to learn to play songs, I don't want to learn to read music. I know the notes on the guitar and I'm learning chords. He makes learning fun and I'm loving it.

· Guitar · In home Daniel did a great job teaching my Teen Student songs that they wanted to learn(even learned sweet home alabama on very first lesson and a loved taylor swift song on 2nd lesson) Daniel tailors each lesson to "pop" songs specifically requested by the studeent ,and all for $30 a lesson! WOW
