We’ve been going to RawkU for 3 and a half years now. My teenage son has transformed into an impressive musician under Dan’s instruction in that time, and has really found a passion for guitar. Dan has offered numerous opportunities to perform along with other young musicians and in public venues, and teaches based on my son’s interests, but also teaches music theory. Recently I also started taking voice lessons with the vocal coach, Becka, and have already seen improvement in just a few lessons. We love RawkU!
I started taking vocal lessons with Becka a couple of months ago and they’ve been going great. She’s a very talented, encouraging, and knowledgeable teacher and seems to really know what she’s talking about. Highly recommended. <br> </br>
Highly recommend Rawk U! My seven year old son has been attending lessons for almost a year and loves it. As a musician myself, I appreciate that my son is learning the rudiments and still gets time for the “fun” drum set music. Would highly recommend Rawk U to any budding musician! <br>
I signed my daughter (age 13) up for drum lessons about a year ago and after a couple of weeks I started taking guitar lessons myself (age 42). Both of me and my daughter are still learning a lot and having fun. We even got a chance to perform together at a school show. Daniel and his staff are great. Would recommend Rawk U to anyone at any age looking to learn and play! <br>
Highly recommend Rawk U! My guitar skills and knowledge have progressed by leaps and bounds over the 2.5 years I’ve been taking lessons with Dan. I had some experience with the guitar (self taught) prior to attending Rawk U but could only handle basic rhythms and leads. Now I can confidently play songs/solos composed by the Greats (Hendrix, Zeppelin, Clapton, SRV, etc.), improvise my own solos, and even have an understanding of the music theory behind it all thanks to him. Dan has also introduced me to genres and playing techniques I was relatively unfamiliar with, such as jazz and ragtime/bluegrass style fingerpicking. The periodic rock band classes and annual student shows offer a fun and interactive way to play with other musicians, get you in front of an audience, and apply what you learn during the lessons as well. <br>
Thanks go to Rawk U for providing the best guitar lessons! My daughter has learned so much in the four years she has been taking lessons and it’s been great to watch her progression from chords to rock songs. A huge shout out to Dan for being an excellent teacher – he’s encouraging, patient, talented and motivates my daughter to learn. Overall a great experience and I would recommend Dan and Rawk U to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons. <br>
Dan is the man. Patient and excited to help you get better with each lesson. Catered to the music I wanted to learn. Highly recommend his lessons. <br>
Daniel’s instructional method is by far the best guitar learning program out there. Prior to attending Rawk U School of Music I had taken years of lessons with limited progress and feelings of frustration. Within a few months of lessons with Daniel he had me up and running and ready to play in one of the School’s rock band courses. Since that time, I have been able to play in several band settings and themes, something that was not even imaginable a few years ago. For anyone that is serious about learning to play guitar I highly recommend Daniel. His patience and approach to learning the instrument will instill confidence and continually expand one’s skill set. <br>
We’ve had a great experience taking guitar and drum lessons at Rawk U for the last three years. Would definitely recommend Rawk U for music lessons for children and adults. <br>
My 10 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Dan for 2 years for acoustic (and now electric) guitar. He covers lots of great pointers for her technique and approach, and he’s always very patient. She’s learned lots of terrific songs (some at her request, many that he’s suggested) and made great progress. <br>
I am a high school student, and I have been a student of guitar here for, presently, a bit over three years. Dan, the teacher, is truly dedicated to his trade. He knows how to play and teach guitar, both done incredibly well. I feel that I have learned much from him; not just guitar, but the music associated with it as well. Dan has the most important attribute for a teacher: patience. I recommend this school to anyone willing to learn what it teaches. <br>
I’ve been a guitar student of Dan’s for over a year. I am still shocked at how far I’ve progressed in that time! As a 30something I never would have guessed I’d have been playing Led Zepplin in less than a year–never having picked up the guitar before. Dan’s band classes look way more professional than a group of folks who’ve been practicing together for only 2 months. Dan loves music and loves teaching it! <br>
Dan was my first instructor to help me pick up my guitar with confidence. Even though I stopped for a month, I will be returning very soon to pick up my lessons again! With only 8 lessons, I was able to learn the basic chords and link them along to form a song. Though I’ve yet to play well enough to have a beautiful and flawless flow like his, I’m sure with more practice, I’ll get there. If you’re a parent or an adult (like myself) in search of an instructor who is patient and understanding, then you’ve come to the right place for the right person. I highly recommend Dan to anyone who would like to pick up an instrument. <br>
Dan is a great teacher. He agreed to teach my 6 year old son begining in January of 2011 and he has progressed and learned quite a bit for a little kid who practices very little. A relaxed low-key approach to teaching that has worked well for my Son.
