I very much enjoyed today's lesson. I learned more about breathing techniques, and the importance of when and how to breathe, and the importance of mindset. (hobby vs. sport.) I learned much more and I am looking forward to practicing through the week and next week's lesson.

Dan is full of positive energy and full of musical knowledge. He is teaching my daughter Piano and voice. The skills she is learning are building her personal confidence. He is bringing her out of her shell and giving her confidence to be herself within her passion of music.

She has been in choir and learning Theory for 5 years and Dan is helping her understand the theory through his great music stories, use of the piano and practical application. I am so excited we found him and would highly recommend him for anyone I know.
