Daniel is a great fiddle instructor. I can't say enough good things about his instructing. The quality of Jeremiah's fiddle/violin playing has improved in just 4 lessons.

Daniel is a great fit for my son. My son was playing scales in no time, and they even did a little duet! Daniel even emailed me notes about what they worked on so my son would know what to focus on while practicing.
