Thank you for your consideration of taking lessons from me. I have been teaching music for over 12 years and have taught hundreds of students thousands of lessons. I have worked with dozens of students who are now collegiate music students or professional musicians. My experience and expertise will help guide you to reach your musical goals.

About Daniel S.

My name is Dan and I'm a musician and educator based out of Pittsburgh, PA. Since 2008, I have taught hundreds of students on various instruments including guitar, piano, vocals, ukulele, trumpet, and more. My experience and expertise has help guide all of my students to reach their musical goals.

For the past decade, I have been a professional freelance musician. I have toured the country and have opened for national acts like Robert Randolph, Of Montreal, Tom Tom Club and more. As a session musician, I have worked with labels like Misra Records, Wednesday Records, and dozens of independent recordings by adding my distinctive style of playing piano and guitar on their projects.

My teaching philosophy revolves around technique and music theory. I believe that when a student has a solid foundation of technique and theory they can learn to play anything. This philosophy has shown great success over the last decade with many of my students going on to become teachers and professionals themselves.

Dan is one of the kindest, most patient teachers I've ever worked with. His music background and talent are extensive and you couldn't find a better person to learn any instrument, whether you are an adult or a kid. Highly recommend!

I'm so glad I chose Dan as an instructor to learn guitar. If you want someone who's professional, fun to work with, and knows his stuff, Dan is the teacher for you.

At first, I was a little nervous to take guitar lessons online. I wasn't sure if they would be as productive as in person lessons. But after working with Dan all those nerves went away. His easy going approach and the ability to play seemingly every instrument makes him an ideal teacher for any musical discipline. Do yourself a favor and book a lesson with Dan.

Dan is a talented multi instrumentalist. He is extremely professional, responsive and warm in his communication style.
He has helped me begin my journey on the piano and I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to make that leap.
Call Dan today and start your journey!
