This was our first adventure with virtual teaching. I can't imagine that we could have found a better teacher. My daughter is 10 and Daniel has made her love for violin grow. I have never once had to force her to practice. She watches the videos of their lessons multiple times a week. It has been an absolutely amazing experience.

Daniel is incredibly patient and very accommodating to my ever changing schedule. That is to say don’t be like me. My name is Caryn and clearly by the current meme I’m not easy. Don’t be like me, be like Daniel.

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.
