My name is Dan and I’m a freelance musician, singer-songwriter, guitar tutor and music producer. I’ve been teaching guitar for over 10 years now. I started back when I was in my last year at Leeds College of Music. I’ve taught hundreds of students of all ages, and have worked in music schools, primary schools, secondary schools, and F.E colleges. I’ve also given workshops on guitar playing and songwriting for the Cambridge Youth Music Project at The Junction. I love music and I love teaching. You can find out more about my approach to teaching by clicking here.
During my musical career I’ve played in all kinds of bands, from small trios to Jazz Big Bands, and I’ve also covered a variety of styles, from Classic Rock to Hip Hop, and even North Indian and Latin groups. These days I keep things simple though, and although I occasionally do some session work in the studio, most of my efforts go into writing and performing as a solo singer-songwriter. I’ve released 3 albums so far and I have just started working on a 4th. I’ve been lucky enough to have toured all over the UK, Europe and the USA, and I’ve played at some of the best festivals in the UK.
