Most important of all, I'm friendly, patient and I genuinely enjoy teaching and helping my rock/pop/jazz piano students realize their musical potential.

Sometimes my students are beginners in their 20s or 30s, sometimes they are professional club DJs, songwriters or West End musical performers needing to be accompanied. Here's a typical comment from a student:

Hi Danny, I wanted to say a thank you to you. About three or maybe four years ago I took some lessons with you (maybe about 8 lessons or so).Anyhow I always remember your love of the piano and the joy of playing and that has helped me get daily joy from playing. So your spirit of enthusiasm has helped inspire me to just be curious and adventurous with playing. It has positively influenced the quality of my life .Many many thanks
Ann Walsh

It is not uncommon that a beginner student will have lost interest in piano from their early teens onwards.
I am also Head of Music Technology at Woodhouse College in Finchley, with additional responsibilites for schools across Barnet.
I've performed extensively at such well-known venues as the Jazz Cafe and the Mean Fiddler in London.

I use a hands-on, fun and practical approach.

I have been a music technology lecturer for 13 years and have played piano for 28 years, gigging, performing and composing.

I'm Grade 8 piano/clarinet, have a BA(Hons) and MA in music and performance related fields. I've composed music for adverts, short films and the theatre.

I also offer the option of teaching music technology, instructing on software packages such as Cubase, Logic Audio, Pro Tools, Wavelab, Sound Forge etc. I have a mixer, sound modules and extensive music software for the project recording studio on which I teach and help music industry clients develop projects.

I am also a founding member of an off-West End theatre company and have composed extensively for the stage, so also have much experience working with theatre musicians and singers.
 
I generally teach at my home in Crouch End, North London, or occasionally travel to the student's house around the Finchley, Muswell Hill, Hampstead, Camden and Islington areas.
