  • Daniella Bolin Guitar Lessons

    Daniella Bolin Guitar Lessons

    Tucson, AZ · Daniella Bolin

    My teaching approach: As a beginning musician, you need to set goals to what you want to accomplish with your guitar, and then look at what you need to learn to get there. I help the student make that evaluation in our first meeting, and we go from there. This way the student is still learning what they want to learn, but is also studying the proper techniques they need to perform well in the future as a solid guitarist. My goal is to give you the tools to learn material and be able to apply it to your own music in the future. My influences are: Manchester Orchestra, Daughter, Have a Nice Li
