Dan is the best piano teacher I've ever known. He is currently teaching my two kids, and I just signed on for lessons myself. On day one of my children's lessons, he had them sight reading. Dan has a true enjoyment for music, and it comes through in his patient and encouraging teaching style. I would highly recommend him if you or your children are interested in learning how to both play and appreciate music.

Dan is an amazing piano and voice teacher. He is very inspirational and super skilled. He is patient and kind, and very good with kids. We drive all the way from Issaquah to see him each week. We also participate in his choir, which is so much fun for my daughter. I highly recommend Dan as an instructor.
