I have known Dan for about four years now. I started out as student with hi. We progressed into a working relationship, which turned into a record signing, a three album record contract. I would never have a problem recommending this guy to anyone. He has helped fulfill my dream! What more could anyone possibly want!
Daniel has been my singing tutor for a few years now and his approach in sessions is supportive and encouraging, he always addresses any concerns and immediately puts you at ease.
With Daniel's help my technique has really improved, along with my confidence and most importantly, all of this is mixed with plenty of laughs and lots of fun!
