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.
