Personal guitar coach
Personal guitar coach
Among the easiest and fastest ways of learning how to play an instrument is to learn directly from a master artist. One of such seasoned experts is Dan Land; boasting over 20 years of coaching guitarists, as well as many gigs and tours under his belt, Dan has learned enough tricks of the trade to write his own book. Instead, he prefers to share his knowledge directly online, helping pupils find their own connection to music with flexible, personalized classes. His specialty is the guitar, but Dan's extensive knowledge allows him to teach songwriting, coach bands, read advanced guitar charts and share the secrets of playing bass, mandolin, ukulele, and piano.
From a very early age, music sparked curiosity and creativity for Dan Land. As a kid, he listened obsessively to his parent's vast record collection which covered everything from Brahms to The Beatles. Then, at age 12, Dan learned his first riff on a neighbor's guitar. Quickly thereafter Dan got his first guitar, started a band, and has never looked back.
Dan graduated from East Carolina University where he studied classical, jazz, and music therapy. Being completely submerged in a diverse music community, while studying the healing value of music therapy influenced Dan's 20+ year career as a guitar coach, working with thousands of people.
As a former member of Sam Riddle and The River, Dan utilized his expertise and creativity to help bring Sam's vision of “The River” to life. The popularity of their album and high energy live show landed them an opening slot for the legendary Dwight Yoakum.
