I am a versatile and experienced guitar player, with many years of teaching experience. I have helped guitarists of all ages and abilities with their playing, and currently have a large student base with many students passing grades to distinction level.
Daniel began playing guitar at the age of 11, firstly performing in school recitals with his fellow classmates. It wasn't long before he became interested in the sound of rock and electric guitar, as played by Steve Vai, Eddie Van Halen, and Joe Satriani, and from then onwards, he became very interested in the excitement and virtuosity displayed by these icons.
This prompted a move to London, where Daniel studied at the ICMP, taking lessons with some of the finest and most experienced guitar teachers in the country, and soaked up as many influences as possible from Jazz, Fusion, and Classical music.
Currently, Daniel plays in an original band, Kody, with former Guitar Idol finalist 'George Marios', and has his own band of original music, alongside a busy function band which performs around London.
Daniel is very interested in how and why we learn, motivation, the best ways in which to practice and gets deep satisfaction from helping students with their playing. He has experience in teaching a range of abilities and ages, from beginners to very advanced students, and is highly adaptable to the requirements of the student.
