Daniel Rodriguez began playing the guitar in Christmas of 2003 after he received his first guitar as a Christmas present. He began by learning classical guitar, which helped him developed fundamental musical skills such as articulation, sight-reading, proper posture, technique, and more. Shortly after, Daniel began to study jazz at Montgomery College along with classical guitar and acquired an associates degree in music performance from Montgomery College. His studies have led him to develop an even greater passion for guitar as well as the wonders of musical theory. Daniel is and all-level music theory apprentice and is currently working on his bachelor’s degree as a music education major hoping to become a band director in the public school system in the near future. As a teacher, Daniel enjoys introducing students to the beauty of music while passing on the methods and techniques which have made him successful. His goal as a guitar instructor is to facilitate the musical learning process for students by providing a material that is beneficial for their learning, come up with an organized lesson plan that will keep students engaged, and use a variety of skills and techniques to keep students focused, attentive, on task, and help them overcome any musical challenge that may occur.
