All County Guitar was established in 1977 by Dan Blum, Instructor. Dan has developed his own system of teaching guitar, which is based on two fundamental ideas:
During his first phone conversation with you, Dan will ask you to prepare a list of your 10 favorite songs to give to him during your first (free) lesson. He will then arrange these songs from the simplest to the most complex, and these are the songs that you will learn!
In addition, Dan has learned during his many years of teaching that an approach which is successful in teaching one person a style or technique might not work for someone else -- therefore, Dan's patient teaching style, refined over decades, is geared towards adjusting to each student's unique way of learning and processing information -- helping you to learn the songs you love while feeling totally relaxed in the process. Students never feel pressured or rushed -- you are learning guitar to enjoy yourself, and that is Dan's goal as well!
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.
