Hello! My name is Daniel.
Since 2009, I have been serving active duty in the USAF as a professional bandsman/guitarist representing the U.S. military through public concerts.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Guitar Performance from California State University of Northridge. I also studied keyboard skills for 10 semesters and have been playing for about 15 years as well.
I have been playing guitar professionally for over 25 years covering rock, jazz, Latin, classical and pop music. I have been teaching guitar for over 15 years. I also founded and manage Guitar Club for Langley AFB giving group guitar lessons for Department of Defense members to promote personal resiliency skills.
I have performed on the Conan O’Brian show with Conan himself and Grace Potter (can be seen on YouTube--search “Full Spectrum with Grace Potter”).
Please check my YouTube channel:
Patient, flexible, goal-minded and quiet. Respects and values everyone’s uniqueness, contributions and potentials.
I enjoy playing music and sharing what I know. I also find it rewarding to see a student progress in their musical journey.

2. To have an agreement with students about lesson plan.
3. To periodically asses student's progression and make adjustment based on goals, or new path to new goals (I'm flexible).

Just ask lots of questions and take your time before making a decision.
Your goal and the teacher's goal; the steps to each goal; and the time you're willing to spend to your goals after each meeting. Ask for a curriculum sample.
