About Dan

I grew up just outside of Manhattan, and now make New York City my home. I have a deep liberal arts background; I earned my B.A. in English from a top private college and a Master's degree in music/music technology from a top graduate university. I currently teach at two New York area colleges in their electronic music production programs.

I help aspiring musicians learn about music production using the latest software, such as Logic, Pro Tools, and Garageband. I teach simple recording techniques you can put to use right now in your project studio. I help aspiring songwriters improve their musicianship and lyric writing. I teach music theory fundamentals. Also, I can help struggling students with paper writing including sentence structure and essay organization. I can help non-native speakers improve their English conversation skills.









Thanks for checking out my profile. Feel free to contact me with any questions!
