Hi friends. My name is Dan Zellan. I am professional, perorming guitarist and instructor for 20 years and I will help you become an excellent guitar player in any style, solo-style or in a band.
Usually I come to your home for your convenience but with everything going on right now I have joined the online lesson community and have found that it does work well.
The reason why ONLINE LESSONS WORK SO WELL WITH ME is because I take the time to make sure YOUR CAMERA is set up perfectly where I can see both your hands and how you are sitting and holding the guitar. I also create perfect angles for YOU TO SEE MY HANDS even in the most minute movements and positioning. ALL THAT MATTERS A LOT when LEARNING ONLINE. It matters in order for you to learn, and it matters to me personally because I care so much and am very passionate about you or a child becoming a great musician who plays the guitar.
I love teaching and performing equally because they are both extensions of who I am. I am educated in both as well having degrees in Theory, Composition, and Performance. I also did Graduate Work in Music Education.
Please read any of the thoughtful reviews given by past students and/or parents. Btw, as much as I love teaching and communicating with people in any age group, I am amazing with kids.
My love and passion for guitar and music is motivating and infectious.
I cant wait to show you how good a guitar player you can be.
Thank You So Much!
I love communicating how to make music and then watching a studnet who genuinely wants to learn, engage in it, improve, get better and better, and become guitar player right in front of my very eyes. Truly, it's a beautiful thing to see and be part of.
Dan worked very well with our ten year old teaching him the rudimentals of guitar and focusing on keeping time. He also always made sure our child was having fun.
Aside from the desired basic outcomes that I achieved from Dans lessons such as good posture, technique, chords strumming patterns, leads, etc. there is much more that I learned. Dan taught me to welcome music deeper into my life, helping Me to listen deeper and appreciate so much more in the sound. Dans approach just worked for me, and truly inspired me to become a musician and reach for more. A true gift and an everlasting lifelong impact that He has made on my life. Go Danl!!
I take weekly guitar lessons with Dan. He's a terrific instructor. I came to him with some basic knowledge of guitar, but he immediately identified the areas that I need to improve, and he has taken me to the next level of skill. I highly recommend him for anyone who is interested in guitar---whether you're a total beginner, or you have some experience but want to "fine tune" your guitar skills.
Dan is a great teacher for kids. My daughter began learning the guitar with Dan. she is young but she loves to play and enjoy the guitar. He is fun and he knows how to teach an young kid. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Dan!
