Voice
I teach in a supportive, encouraging environment. I believe healthy, beautiful singing comes from breath support and pure vowels. Students build confidence as their ability improves and singing becomes easier and more enjoyable.

Violin
I believe that through the study of music the whole child can blossom. A child can become a sensitive, kind and strong individual. Along the lines of Suzuki philosophy he or she learns patience, mastery, self-awareness and the invaluable skill of listening.

Flute
I welcome all ages of students, from 9 years through adult, and all levels of ability. Previous musical experience is very helpful, but not necessary. Students must be willing to practice daily, be committed to learning, and demonstrate enthusiasm for the flute. It is my desire to awaken the joy of music in my students, instill in them a solid musical foundation by teaching the classical flute repertoire, and encourage them to develop the skills to play the flute well and confidently, and to have fun in the process.

  Can't say enough
by Lauren H. from Los Altos, CA
Aug 14, 2012
Can't say enough about Teacher Daniel's music classes for little ones (3-5yrs). He offers Saturday morning classes, with lots of live guitar, hands on props, sing-a-longs and even a book read with lots of animation with sounds, or music, something rythmical. Both of my boys attended his classes. I wish they'd stay little forever so we could keep going every Saturday morning. What a gem of a music teacher. We still sing his songs at home from time to time.
  Top notch instructors!

I shopped around and tried different music classes for my toddler. She liked Daniel Garcia's class on the Saturdays AM and the art class as well (also sat AM). I didn't care for the other music instructor during the week. She's a bit too uptight to be teaching little ones I thought. I guess it's like any class for your kids. If you and your children like the teacher, for reasons that you might not know or understand why, it's good to you.
