Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

I do require that my in-person voice students show proof of vaccination or we will conduct lessons via my no contact setup on my covered porch.

Operatic Singing includes Classical Voice Training, Acting, and Language Coaching. As a working professional in this field I offer the most up to techniques based science.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. Having an open throat and lifting the soft palate not only help your boost the harmonic spectrum of you voice, but also prevents you from pushing or over-singing.

The articulators, the lips and tongue, must be trained independently through exercises that coordinate awareness and motor skill.

The most important part of the voice is emotion. Anyone can sing words, but if you don't know what they mean or how to express them they become nothing but ...

Very clear explanations, and I left the first lesson with good goals and a handful of things to practice. Having the lesson online worked out very well and didn't take away from the experience or efficient use of time at all.
Levi C.
I am an adult beginner in my 30's and was a little nervous about starting my lessons. However, I have to say, great lesson! He really took the time to listen to what I wanted to work on and make recommendations. Then he was able to quickly spot areas for improvement and give corrections that were very relatable and easy to understand. I can't wait to keep working with Daniel.

As a performer in a blues band, and producer of blues albums I find there's a special place in my heart for the blues.

Acoustic, electric, flat picking, finger picking, or slide guitar. Mississippi Delta blues, Texas blues, English blues, Southern blues, Chicago blues, and more.

Whether you want to be a weekend warrior who plays around the campfire, or someone who wants to study at a professional or advanced level, we can make that happen!!!! My unique approach to teaching guitar will have you playing guitar on the first day. No joke.

I understand that each person learns differently and has different musical goals. Because of this, I do not teach everyone the same. I do not teach out of any specific book or teaching program. Instead I design lessons around the student and their own personal style and goals. I feel that this creates a more motivating and driven curriculum and makes lessons more enjoyable for myself and my students.

Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

French (and many other romance languages) include a category of verbs, called reflexive verbs, that are treated a little differently than in English. Indeed, we have the same concept in English.
