Dan has been teaching private drum, percussion, ukulele and songwriting lessons professionally for almost three years. He teaches in person by visiting students' homes in Grand Rapids, Rockford, Ada, Kentwood and the surrounding areas, and offers lessons via FaceTime or Skype from anywhere in the world. As an Adjunct Professor of MCTH210: Songwriting at Aquinas College, and having worked at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum for two years, he has experience working with any level of student at any age! With the Michigan non-profit organization On Stage 4 Kids, he has presented educational performances for K-12 schools all over the state. In private lessons, he seeks to provide a solid backing of groundwork essentials in any area of music while providing the student with opportunities to grow creatively and explore the direction they are most excited about. Based on where the student is on the path of learning, he creates specific lesson plans for each session that deepen and sharpen the student's skills step by step. Dan's dedication and enthusiasm for his craft shines through in his teaching... he would love to share his knowledge and love of music with you or your young one!
