Danny V.

San Antonio, TX

About Danny

Danny is a singer, songwriter, motivational speaker, actor, and model. Danny has had a love for the performing arts since childhood. Every experience that Danny has from music videos, acting, working in bands A-Capella gospel and R & B groups, to American Idol, theater, auditioning, recording in a studio, working with a live crowd, a smaller intimate crowd hosting a show etc. you name it.

Danny believes that making a dream happen requires being solid on faith, being a visionary and also being ready to act and move on the impulse. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and you have to be read
y to move. With life experience and hardships.

Danny appreciates and loves life and in everything he does he feels excited about any opportunity or door that comes his way.

Danny is currently self-employed. In Danny's spare time he loves to always be involved in self development in the entertainment arts and continues to pursue acting and singing. Danny is currently being represented by Condra Artista Talent Agency for the Austin and San Antonio region.

Danny states, In life I only see solutions and happiness in all aspects; I use my talents to express joy laughter and happiness through music poetry, motivational speaking, vocal lessons and comedy. I understand that sometimes you have to go through trial and error, but that's okay because that's how we learn to develop wisdom as people. I am forever humble and gracious about all my blessings because I know that someone out there is experiencing true misfortune, poverty and negativity. I surround my life, spirit thoughts, energy around people of positive driven energy and I project the same where ever I go. I love life and living!

Singing · In studio
I have worked with vocal coaches since I was a kid and for the first time when working with Danny within the first lessons, I have already improved my range and control. Also just the basic use of parts of my voice that didn't even know existed. I am also learning how to use my mix and I am excited as it comes in handy in singing country pop.

Danny V is the best coach I have had in a long time. Right on our first meet, we had a talk of my long and short term goals. Danny was able to customize a lesson plan that helped me prepare from being a background vocalist to a front liner. Also helped me with how to use and hold my microphone.

Danny V is everything you could want as a vocal instructor.

I came to Danny about 3 years ago wanting to take lessons. I had a very light classical type voice but I wanted more. Danny worked with me and helped me build my voice up to be strong, powerful yet controlled. I can do everything and more that I had only dreamed of doing with my voice. Not only that but I am STILL improving. Danny helped me believe in myself and that I could achieve the voice I wanted, now I'm here and I couldn't be happier or more proud of my voice! I have and still do recommend Danny to other singers he is the best you can get!

Julian is an outstanding instructor. He has an amazing teaching ability, offering a great deal of knowledge and patience for people of all levels. I am really glad to have found a way to really learn what playing bass is all about. Thanks to Julian, I feel like I am able to hold my own if I ever try to look for a band to play with. I now feel like I can play and sound good doing it. Highly recommend!!

I started out with absolutely no musical training at all. The first few sessions we spent on learning the basics of how to hold the instrument properly. Julian then asked me why I wanted to learn so that he could find the right method for me. Its been about 4 years and I feel I keep getting better. I have learned more than I ever thought id be able to. I even played live in front of fans before a stars game at the AT&T Center. Julian is a great instructor and will tailor your sessions based on what you want to learn, all the while giving you the proper tools to grow on your own and find your own sound.

Very patient with young children, an outstanding guitar teacher!

Tom has been teaching my daughter guitar for her first year of lessons. She is now 6, and can be moody, very easily distracted and will not sit still for long. To keep her focused, Tom combines harmonica and slide whistle lessons along with her guitar lessons, and it works very well. He also brings in different kinds of guitars (electric and classical) to keep the lessons interesting for her. Every week he reviews what she has learned, and also brings new music and will even write requested songs (using fret # a good approach for kids at this age). He shows up for lessons like clockwork, and she has learned much more than we had expected her to.

Tom is knowledgable, patient and FUN!

Tom lets my son choose the type of music he wants to learn, even specific songs. He also has him work on other types of music in order to improve his technique, yet ensures that its music he likes. As his mom, I am particularly pleased that Tom discusses with him the types of things that my son should practice that will help his progress. Tom is a low-key individual, but has plenty of enthusiasm for his work. My son is always excited about his guitar lessons and thinks the world of Tom.

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

Music Theory · In studio
I recently began taking lessons with Michael on understanding more about music theory with the objective of becoming a better guitarist and song writer. Not only the knowledge I have gained, but the overall improvement of my musicianship in such a short amount of time has greatly surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend Michael to any musician looking to take their craft to the next level.

My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.

Afraid to write this review

Michael has been wonderful. He seems very young to this old woman, but his maturity is remarkable. I have never had a teacher handle 'Thias the way Michael does. Somehow he seems to always be a step ahead of his young student and has a distinct ability to keep 'Thias focused on the lesson. Mathias has learned so much in the last four weeks, his playing sounds much more mature and organized and he is enraptured with the music he is making. I have always had to keep an eye on the lesson to make sure that Mathias was engaged. Somehow I do not feel the need to do that anymore. I guess I can say that Michael has given me the chance to relax and "enjoy the music". Thank you, Michael, You are making my dream and Mathias's dream come true.
