About this pro

I have played guitar for almost 25 years and I've done concerts in different states and also internationally. My biggest influences are Paco de Lucia and Tommy Emmanuel and I enjoy teaching guitar to any levels, ages and styles. My goal is to make sure my student will enjoy guitar lessons not matter how long it takes.

I am also the current guitar professor at Union College, Music Art Ambassador for Nebraska Arts Council, and Artist in Residence for The Lied Center. 

I love sharing my knowledge and experience with my students. I like to see the progress of my students and how they grow into their music skills no matter the age.

    Daniel teaches in a way that helps you understand way you are playing what you're playing. He doesn't just tell you and show you the correct way of doing things, he goes past that, so that you understand the theory behind why you are doing it. I started a little over a year ago playing guitar with him, and couldn't be happier. I thought I would go in and have him show me some methods on how to play guitar. Now I'm playing, and can even play a song by ear. I've started taking piano lessons with him too, since I like his teaching methods.
