I started to play the slide guitar and bass in Germany in 1975. Upon returning to the U.S. in the fall of '76, Dan began the formal pursuit of the instrument taking weekly Jazz guitar lessons from a student of New York hard bop jazz guitar great Link Chamberlain. The east coast jazz guitar style became the starting point for teaching the guitar to students over the years. This 'school of guitar' became the foundation Dan's playing style, helping in the development as a classical guitarist. Teaching professionally since 1981, Dan has a teaching philosophy that demands that he be a learner along with the student, transferring a passion for the guitar that inspires the student to transform from novice to confident musician. Dan continues to study and learn new music daily, transcribing and writing out new tunes every day.

Feel free to contact Dan with any questions you may have about starting lessons.
