Jazz, Classical, Blues, Rock
Daniel began playing the guitar in Christmas of 2003 after he received his first guitar as a Christmas present. He began by learning classical guitar, which helped him develop fundamental musical skills such as articulation, sight-reading, proper posture, technique, and more. Shortly after, Daniel began to study jazz at Montgomery College along with classical guitar and acquired an associates degree in music performance from Montgomery College. His studies have led him to develop an even greater passion for guitar as well as the wonders of musical theory. Daniel is an all-level music theory apprentice and is currently working on his bachelor’s degree as a music education major hoping to become a band director in the public school system in the near future. As a teacher, Daniel enjoys introducing students to the beauty of music while passing on the methods and techniques which have made him successful.
My goal as a music instructor is to provide a welcoming environment in the lesson where students feel comfortable learning and making mistakes. It is important for a music instructor to be focused on students’ progress to help them improve on their instrument, and overcome any learning challenges that may occur. In other words, a successful music instructor that works well with kids is organized, has a lesson plan, motivates students, is patient, and uses techniques that allow him/her to inquire critically into his/her decisions and actions as a music instructor.
