Dan has over 5 years of experience teaching the cello to those of all ages and levels of experience. While rooted in classical technique and theory, he strives to expand the instrument’s potential by teaching students how to play by ear and improvise on top of learning traditional, classical repertoire. Dan encourages experimentation and forays into Eastern modes and even rock and roll, and tries his best to make practicing fun and not a chore.
Dan is also qualified to teach the basics of drumming and percussion, particularly on djembe, congas and tabla (Indian percussion). Private music lessons are $60 for one hour and $35 for a half hour.
