Here’s what students are saying…

“Dan has helped me produce amazing music in a quick, intuitive, and thoughtful way. There isn’t anything I’ve thrown at him that he hasn’t been able to guide me on, even showing me things that I didn’t know were possible in Ableton Live. He’s energetic and passionate about teaching and unlocks the creative potential.”
