As a lifelong music lover, I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar. As I approached 50 and had become so caught up in the day to day, I never thought it would happen. Then one day, I went on the internet, found Dan, and called him up. From the get-go, he was easy to talk to and flexible. We have been jamming every week for over 2 years along with my dog Mabel crashing the party. I hear tunes coming out of my own guitar. A dream come true. I feel like Iâ€™m just hanging with a friend. Teachers, when they are good, make all the difference in the world.
Ever since I could remember, I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. For some reason, I was intimidated by the idea and never pursued it; that is,until I found Dan Blum and ALL COUNTY GUITAR at 38 years old. Iâ€™ve never looked back. Now, almost 5 years later, alongside what I believe to be the best in the business, I am playing songs I love with confidence. My lessons are so much fun and Dan has proven time after time that his system works. Again, the best in the industry and an even better friend.
We are so happy to have Dan back teaching our second son. Dan always goes above and beyond to share his knowledge and love for music. He treats his students like fellow musicians and meets them where they are in music appreciation and helps them grow.
Dan has been my guitar teacher for three years and I couldnâ€™t have been happier with my choice. Over this time I have learned over fifty songs including the vocals. Dan exerts no pressure and allows me to proceed at my own pace creating short cuts for difficult chords when necessary particularly during the first year. He has an uncanny ability to orchestrate song videos into easy to understand chords, strum and pic sequences.
Dan and I have become good friendsâ€¦he even played at my daughterâ€™s wedding!
Dan is a fantastic and passionate teacher. I have learned more (as a advanced beginner) in the past eight months than all the online and offline lessons I have previously taken. He knows his students and crafts his lessons around their ability and willingness. A great teacher.
