My name is Dan Smith. I am a junior going through the Jazz program at the University of Utah. I have been playing for years, and have developed a passion and love for music. Through teaching, I hope to impart this enthusiam on my students. Not everyone learns the same, so instead of using a book I cater the lessons to each unique student's strengths and weaknesess. In my four years of working with different students, I have been able to develope and refine many teaching techniques based off the needs of the students. I'm also of the opinion that learning an instrument should be fun, not painful. Students are encouraged to explore their creative sides, be imginative, and take chances.
I take beginning students for guitar, and beggining to intermediate students of bass and drums. If you're interested, please call or text me at 385-222-9465. If I don't answer, please leave a message and I'll get back as soon as I can.
