I have played guitar for almost 30 years and I've done concerts, performances and lectures 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, Guest teaching artist for John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Teaching 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 is an amazing guitar teacher! He is patient and met me where I was at in my knowledge of the guitar. It is clear how passionate he is about both playing and teaching, and I would highly recommend him to anyone whether they are a beginner or further along in their skills!

    Daniel teaches in a way that helps you understand way you are playing what youre playing. He doesnt 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 couldnt be happier. I thought I would go in and have him show me some methods on how to play guitar. Now Im playing, and can even play a song by ear. Ive started taking piano lessons with him too, since I like his teaching methods.
