Teacher Info

My name is Dan and I am originally from the North East of England now living in London.

I have over 18 years of experience working as a professional musician. I have played in bands since I was 16 covering all sorts of different styles. Being a professional musician has given me experiences I don’t think I would have had with any other chosen profession.

It has enabled me to travel extensively playing a wide range of gigs, whether it be music festivals or private parties. It has also enabled me to meet some of my musical heroes and perform in front of many well know people.

I love playing guitar, performing, teaching others and sharing my musical experience and knowledge. I love watching others improve and gain confidence on their instrument using some of the tools I have equipped them with.

I have taught as a peripatetic guitar teacher in schools and privately covering everything from theory to grades or just taught people for fun showing them how to play there favourite riffs/chord progressions. I have also worked with large groups of adults as part of corporate team building events. I am happy to teach a wide range of ages/ability levels and help my students reach their goals.

Ever since I discovered Rock music at a young age, it was bands like ACDC and Metallica that inspired me to pick up the guitar, later getting into Oasis and Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin to name but a few. My very first instrument was piano but given that rock music was my motivation, piano didn’t quite cut it!

My Approach as a Teacher:

I am a patient, laid-back music teacher who is happy to work at whatever pace/intensity that I feel best suits the student. I have gained many skills/tools along the way to help get the best out of my students. I don\’t believe in putting pressure on people and prefer to create a stress free/fun environment.

I really enjoy teaching my student their favourite songs, dissecting each part and showing them how to play their favourite sections of each song. This can be really motivational for students as it gives them something fun to focus on, whilst learning some valuable techniques.

Music Qualifications & Achievements:

  • B.TECH National Diploma in Popular Music
  • B.A Hons Degree in Popular Music
  • Grade 5 Music Theory.

I have toured the UK with ex Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles, played with people such as Reef, Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs, Rick Astley, Mel B to name but a few. I have played many of the UK music festivals and plethora of other gigs from London to the Seychelles.

The fact that I have managed to earn my living doing something I love for the last 18 years is my biggest musical achievement, and it’s knowledge and skills I have picked up along the way that gives me the motivation to teach. I want to pass on my knowledge and watch other achieve what they want to in music with my help.
