I tailor my teaching to meet each individual student where they are at and help them to set and meet their goals.
Sharing the enjoyment of making music grow with the progress students make is amazing!
Dan is very patient. He gives me positive feedback which helps me believe I will learn to play the piano. I am 67 and learning for the first time. I've only had 3-4 lessons and i am already playing with both hands. I am having fun learning and Dan has made these lessons fun.
First I need to find out what level you are currently at and then find out what you want to accomplish with your music. I then reccommend possible method books, repertoire, lesson length, and frequency.
I have a bachelor's degree and performer's certificate in horn from the Eastman School of Music, a master's in horn from Wichita State University, and am currently working on a docotorate in music from the University of Northern Colorado. Additionaly, I regularly perform horn, piano, and organ throughout the United States. Additionally I am a certified personal trainer and yoga instructor and incorporate healthy body mechanics into every lesson.
