Learn to sing and play guitar or bass from a teacher with over 40 years experience
I was born and raised in Miami, and resided in Dade County for 24 years and in Broward County for over 37 years. I started working when I was 11, delivering newspapers through Junior and High School. Then I went to junior college for 7 years and got 2 Associate Degrees, accumulating 250 semester credit hours, (more than required for a doctor's degree), with a 3.0 average. I took some music and singing classes in college. I primarily worked for myself in my own business most of my life, about 40 years, as a music teacher, singer & guitarist, DJ/MC - entertainer. My father had an old acoustic guitar that I started playing on when I was 15. I got a new electric guitar and small amp for Christmas. I took private lessons from 2 teachers for about 6 months, which I paid for myself from saving money by working, then all of my equipment, vehicles, and 7 years of college. I learned a lot on my own from friends and playing by ear. So teaching others was easy for me, and my students thought I was good at it. I taught private guitar lessons for 4 music studios, 1 music class in a private elementary school, and about 10 adult education classes at 3 Broward County high schools. I teach the basic fundamentals of playing the guitar, like proper fingering techniques, picking and strumming patterns, plus music theory. The student will learn all of the notes, scales, many chords, reading music, and play lead melody, harmony, and background rhythm accompaniment in songs of varied styles.
About Dan B.

I have taught over 600 students from 6 to 75 years old. I am an excellent communicator, paying very close attention to each students' individual needs and wants. I dont hire other people to work for me, I treat my customers on a very personal relationship directly. Clear instructions and detailed explanation in an organized order, demonstration with visual aids, questions to verify communication, review and test, then put into practical application. Helping others to enjoy a fun hobby and personal satisfaction to achieve success in self confidence by mastering an instrument. I have a lot of general knowledge and practical experience from learning how to do many various tasks by using good judgement and common sense and allowing the natural laws of basic physics to get the work done the most efficient way.

I sing tenor and play acoustic and electric guitar, bass, or ukulele. Most of my 500 songs are top 100 classic hits from the sixties and seventies, including country, folk, rock, pop, and standards. I owned and operated my music business for over 40 years, as a teacher/instructor, singer/musician, entertainer, and DJ/MC. I Performed as a solo artist and in groups of 2-6 people, played with a country band which opened for some big recording artists at concert shows. I am very artistic and creative, as I wrote many songs that could have been hit records if I had more time and money to record them, and the right connections to promote them.
