"If you have wanted to tackle the awesome skill of improvisation, THIS IS WHERE TO START! Daniel Plane is just the right combination of an expert player AND a true teacher."

Loralyn S. (Founder of Red Desert Violin)

"I started playing fiddle/violin about 9 years ago. I felt I had reached a certain level in terms of basic skills and sight reading, but what was missing for me was knowing how to 'play along' with any tune - how to approach that. This course was just what I needed; it gave me a lot of the missing pieces, and it has already advanced my understanding, confidence and abilities. Thanks so much, Daniel, this course was great! "

- Betty from Toronto, Canada

"Moving from relying 100% on sheet music to feeling comfortable using my ear to pick out a tune and to then improvise was amazing! This course gave me the tools to make that possible (and enjoyable!) "

- Lorrie C

What Daniel's private students are saying

"In just a handful of weeks, I can't believe how much I've learned! Each week I leave feeling challenged and motivated, but never frustrated. I'm having a great time!" -Adam

 

"I came to Daniel to learn music theory, improve my rhythm, and learn the skills I need to confidently show up to a jam session with other musicians. In just a few lessons, I've significantly improved in each of those areas at Daniel's instruction. He REALLY knows his stuff..." - Dave
