ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:
BA, Florida State University, Music 
Overview:
My name is Daniel Erdahl or as kids often call me, Mr. Dan. I have been playing and studying music for nearly 30 years, and teaching for 20. I play and teach many, many styles. I started playing rock and blues as a kid, later becoming very focused on classical guitar. Over the years I have picked up several other instruments including ukulele, mandolin, banjo, drums, bass, vocals, and piano. I decided in 2006 that I wanted to be a full-time professional music teacher, and developed a studio of 60 students a week. By 2008 I decided to open a larger music studio and hire teachers. Summer of 2008 I launched Broadway Music Academy in Orlando, FL, with 15 teachers instructing up to 300 students a week, and a retail store.
EXPERIENCE
As hard as I worked to become a musician, I have worked at least as hard to become a great music teacher. I love teaching music! It is something I cared about enough to open my own music school in Orlando, FL called Broadway Music Academy in 2006. I have taught for many established music schools throughout Florida, New York, and New Jersey. I bring this experience to every lesson I teach and continue to learn new and exciting ways to engage students. Overview - I have a record of success with students of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and goals - I teach using a variety of methods and styles, including my own authored books - I own a music academy where I train others to be successful instructors - I have a very high student retention rate - I've been playing nearly 30 years - I have a BA in Music from Florida State University - I have been teaching for 20 years - I have personally taught over 15,000 private lessons - I have played in numerous bands - I have gigged professionally
METHODS USED
For every student, I initally assess why they are taking lessons and what their goals are. Together we create a plan to acheive those goals.  For young beginners, I like the FJH guitar series. It was written by guitar educators. I also teach the student to play fun songs and tunes to supplmement the books.  For teens and adults, the path depends on their goals, which aren't always in a book. Some have serious golas of becoming a classical or jazz musician, while others just want to strum and sing. Both are great, and I can help with that and everything in between! 
LESSON STYLE
 I have always had a great time playing music. Although I have worked very hard to become a musician, it never felt like work. I quickly learned as a teacher that if I could find a student's passion, the work of learning became almost effortless for the student as well. I offer one to one private lessons and small group classes. I customize the lessons to the goals of each student. Whether it's for fun and leisure or a driven passion with serious goals, I can give you the tools to accomplish what you want! I love teaching people through the music that they love. So, whether that's Britney Spears, Metallica, or Bach, the concepts underlying music are basically the same. I will make sure you can play the music you love and hopefully help you explore new music as well.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
