Levels taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Even in my beginner lessons, I teach you a REAL SONG by an artist you like on the very first lesson! Text or call for details. My intermediate and advanced lessons help you learn more complicated lead rhythm techniques in pop rock and country REAL songs. I am also avail to coach original musicians who want to be paid as original songwriters/performers as that is what I do.

About Daniel O.

Quick question, instead of "playing Mary Had a Little Lamb" or "chords with no real song" what if you could learn a HIT Pop/Rock/ or Country Song of YOUR CHOICE by the 2nd lesson with me!

I don't teach out of a book, I teach SONGS YOU REQUEST to LEARN on guitar for all student levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced)

ACTION ITEM for you: send me the "name of the song" you want to learn 1st 2 lessons as a question right now:

Want a West Valley area of Phoenix reliable, fun, trusted guitar instructor who teaches YOU songs YOU want to learn? Let's schedule a guitar lesson! I am a 30+ clean cut, 100% non smoking guitarist who has sold 108,000 + paid downloads/CDs/and 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 but keep it SIMPLE with written "Guitar Tab and Chord" Diagrams that anyone 11 to 99 can easily play a real song ASAP. Schedule now before your preferred time slot fills up.

I got more out of one lesson today than in all of my previous failed attempts.

It was great. I have never even HELD a guitar, let alone played one. I will practice all week and hopefully, next week it will be easier.

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.
