I’m a bestselling author, who has published a few books on topics ranging from salsa dancing to Brasilian music & percussion to life enrichment & autism. I’ve also taught college classes on writing and publishing. In addition, I play music and teach ukulele, and body percussion as well...

I love helping people follow their dreams to write (and publish) their own books, and am looking forward to working with you to achieve your literary goals.

Thank you Dan for a wonderful class, at a beautiful setting! I did not have any previous music experience, Dan is a wonderful teacher, very patient and I found the class very enjoyable.

Great session. Lots of tips on continuing, with ways to make chord practice interesting and how to improvise to make ukulele playing fun. Dan was inspiring and lesson moved at a good pace. I'm already playing more

Dan made the class very fun, even over video conferencing. He was well prepared with 2 laptops, one to show his notes and one to show himself. We could hear his voice and his ukulele clearly. He put the emphasis on having fun and teaching us that playing the ukulele is all about developing your own personal style, and doing what you want to do. Very inspiring. Thanks Dan.

Learn Body Percussion and Interactive Rhythm

It was a lot of fun to spend 45 minutes with Dan at the beginning of our offsite. He was well organised in how to make it work over video. The team had a lot of laughs getting the blood flowing and using our bodies as percussion. Thanks Dan!

Dan is an awesome and patient teacher. The class is very clear and it really helps you to get the basics of ukulele playing and to motivate you to enjoy while learning how to play. The resources he uses are great and clear. I would gladly recommend this class and Dan. Cannot wait for mi next class!

This was such a fun class! I am not particularly musical, though I thought it would be pretty cool to be able to learn how to play a song on the ukulele. Dan was patient and explained step by step how to play the different notes, he gave useful tips and showed some fun styling on how you can add your own flavour to any song. The class was playful and I learned to play a song. I look forward to playing some more at home and adding my own flavour :) Thanks Dan!

How to Play Ukulele for Beginners

I had a great time in my Ukulele class with Dan! As an absolute beginner, I was a bit nervous beforehand but Dan was really positive and encouraging and I had a great time! I just wish it was longer as the hour went very quickly!

How to Play Ukulele for Beginners

When it comes to playing an instrument, I’m an absolute beginner. So I was a little nervous to try this out. But Dan was a fantastic teacher who made me feel at ease, and by the end of the lesson I could actually strum a song! What I liked about this class is that Dan teaches the basics, but also expanded my idea of what ukulele playing can be. I didn’t know there were so many styles of playing, and now I’m excited to experiment and find my own style. This class is a lot of fun, and I highly recommend it if you’ve been thinking of learning  + more
