Dan is an inspirational piano teacher. He has magical tutoring skills. The lessons are fun, but also enlightening as Dan shares not just his love for piano but love for all instruments and all music.
My 10 year old son Dylan has already achieved Grade 4 trumpet with a merit and is about to do his Grade 1 piano exam. Dan is a very inspiring and positive teacher. With his calm manner, Dan is a good listener and always takes an interest in what Dylan has to say. He helps him to perfect his posture while playing the trumpet and piano and has taught him breathing exercises to help concentrate on his music.
