Hello! My name is Daniel Olsson and I am a musician, instructor, songwriter, and producer with over a decade's worth of experience in lessons, performance, songwriting, and producing combined.
With extensive experience in the music, recording, touring industry, I have been teaching music lessons for a long time. I take a fun and intuitive approach to lessons, starting with your musical interests, and crafting the lesson around your personal music taste. We start from your skill level whether that be the basics, or something more advanced.
I enjoy the endless creativity music affords. Whether I am teaching an instrument, writing a song, or performing at a concert, I love the feeling of CREATING in the moment. I enjoy the freedom of expression in music, and I love that I can share that with students and other fellow musicians no matter where we are. Music is a universal language. It is something that people from all different backgrounds relate to without even saying a word in a spoken language. It's hard to find anyting that achieves something simliar to that, and that's one reason I enjoy creating, teaching, and performing music.
Dan is full of talent and integrity. He’s the real deal. He taught my teen daughter a love for playing piano, and my teen son guitar, even when the latter was not entirely self-motivated😂. They both loved working with him. I would HIGHLY recommend Daniel Olson!
Daniel is incredibly patient is this our younger children and our daughter who was enthusiastic and my discipline. He brought a great variety of music and they love not only playing but their lessons as well! I have shared his name with anyone who asks for a recommendation!
My goal is have every new student I teach playing a song by the end of the first lesson. I always start with the musical interests of new students. We talk about what music they like, and then I ask them to show me what they know on their instrument. This helps me evaluate their skill level, and then we start learing from there. I make sure knowledge of the basics is understood, and then move on to playing music.
We pick a song of the student's choice, and then learn the chords and arrangement from there.
I have almost a decade's worth of experience in teaching music lessons. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Music Business and Entreperneurship in 2018.
I toured the country as a lead guitarist and piano player for four years, and have performed in many different concert venues ranging from arenas to small clubs. I have also performed on radio stations including Sirius XM in New York, NY, and other stations in Chicago, IL.
I have written songs and produced for over a decade combined, and have produced for different artists around the country.
