Personalized Instruction

Dan meets every student where they are in they're musical journey and helps them create a path to reach their goals

Multiple Genres

Dan is well versed in a variety of genres including Jazz, Funk, Soul, RnB, Rock, Metal and Country.


With an emphasis on theory and fretboard logic I equip my students to not only play well but to understand the inner mechanics of music and ultimately be their own teachers.

Flexible Schedule

Although students sign up for a weekly time slot I understand not every week is the same and I am able to accommodate changes when necessary


"My only regret is not starting guitar lessons with Dan sooner! He’s taught me more within a few weeks than I had been able to teach myself after years of dabbling on my own.
He’s a master at guitar, but shares his knowledge in an easily digestible, fun & comfortable manner. Plus he is just nice to be around. 11/10"


"Dan is a really great teacher, he makes it so easy to learn and at an affordable price. I have been with him for about 3 months I bet you I play the bass a lot better than before. Keep teaching great techniques and I ll keep learning.thank you Dan"


"Dan is the master.
Study with him wisely, because that hour will fly by.

In my personal lessons with Dan, It’s not necessarily about how many songs we can learn in a month. He lives and breathes music from so many different angles.

I’ve found in his playing — wonderful resource for opening up the guitar neck to infinite tonal possibilities. We have fun through making efficient scales, new chords and discussing the vast possibilities unlocked through combining those endeavors. The emphasis seems to be on maintaining my voice as a guitarist while filling in massive gaps in my playing.

Dan is also just an easy person to be around. I HIGHLY recommend."
