Testimonials | Auckland Guitar Lessons

“Danny was highly recommended to me by a friend, and from the first session I was blown away and have not looked back since. Danny is obviously a talented and experienced musician but not everyone can be a teacher, however Danny is a fantastic teacher. His patience, motivation and knowledge that he shares means that I come away from each weekly lesson with the tools I need to tackle the next song and the drive to practice harder. I would highly recommend Danny to anyone who is wanting to push themselves and achieve their dream of playing the guitar.” - Auckland Guitar Lessons

“I tried self-teaching but the progress is much slower, you don’t know what you don’t know, and it’s frustrating… someone who’s taught that before could say “do this and this” and it’s problem solved… With my shift work, I needed someone who could be flexible with times and could tailor the approach for my level of knowledge. I chose Dylan because of his background… and the professional approach when I first made contact with him… It’s forced me to address how I practise things and how I learn skills. Because of that I’m learning guitar much faster than I would somewhere else and there’s also cross-over into other things I do in life.” - Auckland Guitar Lessons

“As a adult absolute beginner, I had a resident trepidation and discomfort. Anything less than a supportive and nonjudgmental approach would have snuffed my slender attempts. I'm pleased to say that Danny's warmth and friendly mastery helped encourage growing confidence. Highly recommended.” - Auckland Guitar Lessons

“As an intermediate guitar player I had hit a wall and was making no progress. You can only go so far watching YouTube videos and jamming with your mates. From the moment I met Danny he challenged all aspects of my playing with the aim to improve my technique, rhythm and understanding of music. I’m delighted with my progress and enjoy the lessons. Danny is patient, observant and will push your boundaries. Being tutored by one of Auckland’s most respected musicians is a real bonus and he’s passionate about all types of music. I highly recommend you book some time with Danny.” - Auckland Guitar Lessons

“As an adult, and complete beginner, I was worried about the repertoire of songs I would be resigned to learning. To my relief, ‘Michael Row The Boat Ashore’ has not once made an appearance and instead, each lesson, Danny teaches me my favourite songs of the week. Danny’s patient, competitively priced, and can teach you any song you want. I recommend him to anyone.” - Auckland Guitar Lessons

"My son has been having lessons with Danny for 2.5 years, and we are very happy. More importantly he loves going to lessons and really likes Danny too, which is very important for a pre-teen. As a well known and respected real band musician it gives my son the feeling he is learning from someone that can teach him real music.” - Auckland Guitar Lessons

"I enjoy learning with Danny as he’s an approachable tutor and the lessons are practical and tailored well to my ability. It’s also great to be taught with someone so passionate about their craft" - Auckland Guitar Lessons

The most important guitar chords to learn are the C, A, G, E and D chords.
The next most important ones are the challenging B and F chords.
The worst thing you can do if you are a new player getting Auckland guitar lessons is learn these shapes in open position.
The best thing you can do when learning new chords is:

* Get or buy a capo
* Place it on the 5th fret

Once kids learn how to arch their fingers and gain some strength and coordination, they graduate to playing chords using my finest invention: The String Mute 4000. This state-of-the-art device employs military-grade hook-and-loop adhesive to minimize sonic vibritization.

Yep, it’s just a little square of Velcro, cut from a long strip I bought at a craft store. The “hook” side had an adhesive backing, which was a bummer until I realized I could stick my business card on it.
