I help people realize their musical and artistic potential by sharing the gift of music, leading by example, and aiding them in their own journey of discovery.
Daryl's professional career has provide him with a wealth of experience and knowledge of many playing styles. He is a great mentor and is very patient!
Daryl was my guitar teacher for nine years. So, I got to know him pretty well. He is patient, encouraging, and skilled. He has been like family to me, and has helped me hone a craft that I can appreciate the rest of my life.
Daryl’s technical knowledge is very advanced and his playing skills are what one expects of a pro. He is flexible to whatever style of playing guitar is needed and a good overall teacher. He has been my teacher for a year.
He is patient with me, and he is very good about breaking down the lessons for me. Even when I ask him about a song I want to play, he quickly finds it on Spotify and is able to show me how to play parts within minutes. Daryl is a very good musician and he is able to describe and show various parts of a song for both the right hand strumming and the left hand fretting. Daryl is also has excellent knowledge of music theory and incorporates it into our lessons.
I like to find out what the student's individual goals are. Everybody is different and everybody has a different reason for wanting to play an instrument. It's my job to help you discover that and then provide a way that I can help you reach your goals.
I've been a professional musician for over 30 years and a teacher for over 15. Although I do not have a degree in music (my degree is actually in Graphic Design), I took all the music classes I could, studied privately, and have been actively involved in playing music almost all of my life. I treat music as a continuous learning experience and have made my living at it for the last 30 years.
I am offering a special lessons.com rate of $50/hour.
A owner of a local music store actually talked me into trying it out. I told him I'd give it a shot and started teaching on Saturday's. I soon was able to fill up the entire week and soon after was teaching upwards of 40 students/week.
All types. Young, old, experienced, inexperienced, blind, autistic, shy, outgoing etc... Everyone. If you want to give it a shot, I am happy to help you.
I love coaching students in a band setting and having them perform.
Hire someone that seems to share your vision and don't hire the cheapest one. As with most things, you get what you pay for.
