About Joe Danny O.
Hello! Thanks for checking out my page. I've been playing guitar for close to fifteen years. I studied jazz with the Applied Musicians Program at Mesa College, which has changed my view on playing music across all instruments and styles. I've been playing other genres for a lot longer though! I can teach you pop, bluegrass, folk, rock, and more. Let me know what your short or long term goals are and we will get there by learning repertoire of your choice that is appropriate for the skill level we are working on. If there is a time that works best for you that isn't listed let me know! Feel free to contact me and ask any questions you may have!Show More

Joe taught my 13 year old son.
On the lesson side, he brought a great mix of fundamentals (scales, etc.) and keeping my son really engaged by also teaching him tunes he wanted to learn.
On the logistics side, he was equally perfect: great communicator, never late, personable.
A nice guy, great player/teacher, and professional: I can't recommend him highly enough.
We're off to a GREAT start.
Joe was on time and is a great teacher, he is very patient and a good listener. we are looking forward for our next class.
Great first lesson!
Joe’s great and can gear his lessons towards any genre of music you like. would recommend to anyone looking to start guitar
Great first lesson. Started by focusing on basics and learning what my son knew and his skill level.
Joe Danny was professional, knowledgeable, funny, kind, very helpful and encouraged me to work and practice hard. He was meant to be a teacher. Very patient and through! Highly recommended him to others!
JD is very patient and knowledgeable. He keeps the lessons fun and packed with the right amount of challenges according to growth level. It helps when you actually do the homework and practice in between classes.
Joe was very knowledgeable. He has a very relaxed air about him and is really encouraging. Looking forward to more lessons with him in the coming weeks/months.
just finished my first lesson with Joe. It was a great experience. He is fun, very laid back and informative. I got a lot out of this session
First lesson, and loved it. I am being forced to think. Now we'll see how well I can practice on my own.
Joe is the most knowledgable & relatable instructor I've ever had the experience of learning from.
Joe's knowledge of guitar is expert and spans a wide variety of genres. It's rare to find a guitarist who considers phrasing and dynamics while playing, but Joe does exactly this, breathing life into all his licks with mindful control over volume and articulation. I've learned a lot about Blues chord progressions, and I'm sure a guitarist of any genre will learn a lot from him. Highly recommended.Show More
A good teacher, well organized and structured lessons.
Joe was a great teacher! I had no experience with the mandolin and he was really helpful with explaining concepts and tailored the lessons for my personal goals and music preferences. Great experience overall, I highly recommend taking lessons with Joe!
Joe is such a patient and great teacher. He takes his time to explain everything to my child. She has had 0 musical experience. He is on time and polite. Very good with children. He also happens to be extremely talented. Thanks for all you do Joe
