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.
Dan is a wonderful guitar teacher who works with his students on a one-on-one basis, and strives to make sure that they both understand what they're playing and how to achieve it. I also like the fact that he lets the students choose which songs they want to learn, so they're not playing songs that they have no interest in.
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 I'm just hanging with a friend. Teachers, when they are good, make all the difference in the world.
We have been inviting Dan into our home to teach my 12 and 10 year old children guitar for 5 years. Dan's technique and theory for teaching young children is unique and effective. He will teach them to play and sing the songs they love. Dan is kin...
Dan has been my guitar teacher for three years and I couldn'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 friends - he even played at my daughter's wedding!
