« Around eight months ago I joined a long running musical project that Daniel is a part of. This involved me learning a great deal of material, some of which was difficult to pick up at the time. Dan helped me out a lot with this, running through the songs with me part by part in a productive and informative manner and providing detailed breakdowns of song structure. Dan is a friendly and patient person with a great approach to teaching. He has a comprehensive knowledge of music theory and a very high standard of technical ability on the guitar. If you're willing to put in the effort, you will gain a great deal from him. »

Moran Tutoring - Learn how to hold your guitar as well as yourself

Methodology

My primary focus above all is individuality. Having tutored students as young as 5 and as old as 55, from beginner to intermediates to advanced students including some with special needs, the most important thing I have found is developing a personality in the instrument.

The approach to the lesson must be particular to the student. If they wish to take lessons to hone their technical skill, a more hands on lesson plan needs to be established. Equally, if they wish to simply take it as a hobby, the lesson needs to have a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. My lessons above all strive to be engaging.

Experience

Guitarist and music lover for 15 years, performer for 9, tutor for 2. I have had successful tutoring history since A-Level music where I had the highest attendance rate of all musical staff despite being a volunteer. Since then, my tutoring in Rimmers Music, Southport, has led me to helping two primary school students achieve Grade 2 Merit in less than a year of learning. I have performed at major festivals and I am soon to support a major act in 2 Russian Stadiums. I'm a 1st Class Honours Student in Popular Music respected by many local players and musicians.

(concealed information)

I am a Grade 8 Certified Guitar tutor and hold a 1st Class Honours Degree in Popular Music Studies certifying Grade 5 Theory knowledge and teaching capability. I have been a self-employed tutor for over a year and have had teaching experience as far back as my first year of A-levels, of which I had the highest instrumental student attendance out of the voluntary and employed staff. I have been teaching in Rimmers Music for just over a year now and have had a 95% success rate with all of my trial applicants (i.e, they stayed on for paid lessons after their free trials.) I am an effective, emotive, and dedicated tutor who can both drive his students to be the musician they want to be and help navigate the student to find their passion in the instrument.

Career Highlights

Performing three hour long sets of original material with a self-conducted and arranged orchestra
Playing the UKs biggest metal festival two years in a row
Performing at my A-Level recital with the four students I had tutored
Receiving a 100% mark for my first two university theory tests
Delivering my first class certified "Aesthetics in Popular Music" presentation
Recording in Parr Street Studios, The Motor Museum, and self-engineering an album release
Developing my own successful chord memorisation sequence for my students
Two of my best students earning Grade 2 Merit

Rimmers Music - Southport

Working in Rimmers has taught me many things, not the least of which is a very healthy respect for punctuality and timetabling. Thanks to my self-employed work there, I have honed my organisational skills which help me to both plan a very effective lesson strategy for the student, either by the day or in advance depending on their preference, as well as keep a strict schedule for both the student and I to honor. I have a strong respect for students' needs as players and adapt to them accordingly.
For example, students currently taking Rockschool exams will need me to be far more forward and stern with them to achieve the end goal of a Grade 8 certification, whereas a student that approaches me to take time and focus on particular techniques or pieces will need a more patient and relaxed approach to breed the proper environment for keeping the passion needed to pursue practice.
Above all, the most important thing I can deliver as a tutor is developing a player's personality. I firmly believe the most pivotal skill a guitarist can have is the ability to sound like themselves. Working with students as young as 8 and as old as 55, as well as special needs students, has shown me that, no matter how long they have been playing, if at all, they come in as guitarists, not children, teenagers, adults, etc. While I adapt my approach to their learning needs very well, my success thus far as a tutor has come from recognising that students who truly want to get better with the instrument are intelligent enough to understand what it will take to get to the skill they desire.

Other Work

I have had experience as an assistant both in landscaping for my father's business as a volunteer as well as having employee experience in retail in both Tesco and Boots some time before I decided to go into further education. While they were relatively simple jobs, they did give me a strong respect for my colleagues and for the workplace. This respect has transferred to my college work, tutoring work, and musical endeavours. My priority outside of teaching is to uphold a professional and respectable image for both myself and my contractor.

"Having worked with Daniel Moran for a number of years I can confirm that he is an exceptionally competent and thorough teacher. He constantly seeks to improve his knowledge of music and that shines through in both his playing and teaching. Daniel has excellent punctuality and is a pleasure to work with. His students go from strength to strength as a result of his engaging guitar lessons. "

Around eight months ago I joined a long running musical project that Daniel is a part of. This involved me learning a great deal of material, some of which was difficult to pick up at the time. Dan helped me out a lot with this, running through the songs with me part by part in a productive and informative manner and providing detailed breakdowns of song structure.

Dan is a friendly and patient person with a great approach to teaching. He has a comprehensive knowledge of music theory and a very high standard of technical ability on the guitar. If you're willing to put in the effort, you will gain a great deal from him.

If anyone is looking for guitar tutoring services at any level, there's honestly no one else I'd go to over Moran Tutoring.
One of the most incredible young guitar players I've ever come across, plus with such an indepth knowledge of skills, methods and subject matter, and a really engaging teaching manner, easily makes Daniel Moran one of the most effective teaching services available.
