About Danny S.

Skype Lessons are OK
dannysilversmith.com/

I've taught hundreds of students over the past few years both privately and at the New York School of Music. My favorite guitarists of all time are Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Wes Montgomery, and Django Reinhardt. That being said, I love playing all kinds of music, from jazz to bluegrass to 80's hairmetal to hiphop

*** Lesson Details ***

I like to teach absolute beginners how to read tabs and sheet music from the Hal Leonard series. I also have tons of my own supplemental sheet music and handouts.

For Intermediate players, I like to have them keep an ongoing songlist that we can work through, as well as songs I think appropriate. We also delve into music theory: intervals, chords, and scales.

For Advanced players, we can work on Metal, Jazz standards, classical... anything! We can delve more into harmony, substitutions, and better practice routines.

I'm an experienced player and Danny taught me some cool new tricks, like tapping, and how to use guitar pedals more effectively. He is a great guy and really cares.

Danny is an excellent teacher. He is patient, encouraging, and a lot of fun. He takes the time to plan lessons around the songs and styles that I'm interested in. He is knowledgeable and passionate about music, and the way he explains basic music theory has helped me understand it so much more than I thought I would. Learning a new instrument with Danny has been stress-free and inspiring. I highly recommend him!
