Hi I’m Danny Spadaro! I’m a professional guitarist, songwriter and producer offering guitar lessons and vocal coaching. -17 years guitar experience -Season 8 contestant on The Voice -B.A. degree in Popular Music Studies at William Paterson University ‘15 -Major label production credits (Mariah Carey, French Montana, Steven A. Clark, etc.) I’d love to hear from you! [email protected]
Professional, knowledgable and immediate “click” with the student. Can not ask for any better instructor for my 8 year old “Wanna be Paco”...
I like to get to know the student by asking about their hobbies and if they've had any past musical experiences. I'll also typically ask them (or their parent) about their goals and what kinds of songs/techniques/skills they want to learn, as well as their biggest musical influences!

For private in-home lessons within 20 miles of Newbury Park (zip: 91320), I charge $60 for a one-hour lesson or $40 for a half-hour.
I started teaching guitar when I was a freshman in high school. A friend of mine that I met in chorus asked if I could start giving him lessons and that's when it all started!
My students have ranged from 7 to 38 years old.
Find someone that makes music fun. Someone with an easygoing personality that is patient. You can learn music theory and different styles of music, but there should always be time to have fun with it. Practicing is important for improvement, but it should never feel like a chore. My teacher made sure of that when he taught me and I make an effort to do the same.
What kind of music do you want to learn to play? Do you want to learn to read music? Do you plan on performing in front of people?
