Customer Testimonials

My son had no musical education prior to working with Danny. He wanted to learn the guitar. So we asked at Guitar Center who they would recommend, without hesitation they said Danny. My son has A.D.D. and this has helped him at home and at school. Danny is great with him and is making great progress.


My daughter has been taking lessons with Danny for several months. He is a talented and personable musician, whose knowledge and patience keeps my daughter excited about mastering the craft.


I was led to Danny through South Texas Music Mart and my son is learning so much and having a blast! He's only been taking guitar lessons for a few months and already wants an electric guitar! He always looks forward to his lessons. Danny is the best!
