Daniel A.

Schaumburg, IL

About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I am also a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new ...

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Daniel is a highly skilled piano teacher.

I have been very impressed with Daniel's instruction abilities - he is patient, tuned-in to whether or not I 'get it', and has opened the door to a whole new way to re-learn piano for personal enjoyment.

Dan C.

Barrington, IL

About Dan

I have been playing guitar for 30 years, starting with Rock/Blues before studying both Classical and Jazz guitar in college. I received my Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1995. I am currently a guitar teacher in the NW Chicago suburbs and in Chicago currently with 45+ students, teaching all ages, all levels and all styles. I have been teaching guitar and music off and on for the past 20+ years but in 2007 I decided to devote myself to teaching full time (yes, teaching guitar is my primary job!)...one of the best decisions I have ever made! To me, playing music is an incredibly rewarding experience. It’s also a lot of fun! But no matter what your goals are in music, I have found, through many years of playing and teaching, that every musician ...

Best Teacher and Encouraging

I have had Dan as my Guitar Teacher, he is the best in teaching Guitar from the basics. I started with him as nothing since I do not have any Musical Background, He encouraged me well to understand the Music notes and Guitar Tabs. Every lessons with him was so much interesting and particularly he asks me to choose my favorite song and explore the Guitar notes. That makes the learning interesting and willing to explore the different types of Music.
Any questions I asked about the Music, he could explain by the way that I can easily understand. Every second in his class is valuable and has some good information about Music.
He is the Best and I always feel proud to say that I am his student.

Best teacher i've had

Dan is amazing. I've had him as a teacher for a few years and I have already learned to play Hotel California, Johnny B. Goode, and many other songs. Dan brings his own equipment so that you can get printed handouts whenever you want. He is quite instructive and explains things in simplest terms. If you are having some trouble with something, he breaks it down into smaller pieces. Dan is definitely the best teacher I have had.

Brandon has give the perfect complement for my 9 yo daughter in-school lessons. She started in the school orchestra this year and she was among the least knowledgable students; right after she started with Brandon, her performance improved significantly. Now she's preparing for her first solo performance and Brandon has been a key in this process.

Brandon knew exactly hot to kickstart my 13 yo daughter in guitar. It was her first lesson ever and after a few weeks she made a huge progress. Now she plays guitar much better than me and it's been just a few months so far. This is part talent, but I have no doubt this is also part orientation. Brandon did a great job in motivation with her and figured out the best way to engage her in her learning.

Steven is a great teacher! He's flexible, and works well with all ages! He's teaching my 3 kids, drums, guitar and bass. He's very receptive and adjusts his lessons according to what my kids are interested in. For example one of my kids was learning notes, but then the other wanted to learn a specific song and he easily adjusted to focus on what each of them wanted to do to. My kids love him!

I took 5 in-home guitar lessons from Steve and loved every minute! I had never played guitar before so we were starting from scratch. We covered a lot of information, tailored to what I wanted to learn, and I felt like I made a lot of progress in a short amount of time. Steve was always on time, well-prepared for lessons, and was very encouraging. I would recommend Steve to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons.

Voytek is a very positive, knowledgeable, and creative instructor. I am 60 years old and have never taken singing lessons before, but Voytek patiently helped me improve my vocal range and depth by leading me through many vocal exercises. He also tailored the songs I sang to the style I'm most familiar with. I would highly recommend Voytek to singers of all ages and experience.
