Private Lessons

In Person or on the web! I’m now teaching regularly in Tucson, AZ. More convenient that Yuma was for sure, but, I know it is a bit inconvenient for many of you, SO you can also take lesson by Webcam.
Here or there. In town? Call or email and we’ll set up an in person session or two.

Not near here, can’t find a teacher in your area? I’m not coming to your town? Don’t fret - go to the web! We can make it happen one on one by webcam. I use both Google Video Chat and Skype to teach you in person and at your convenience in the comfort of your own home.

Your place AND mine!

Lessons by Dan in the Chehalis, WA area - maybe a workshop or concert too!

Emmy and I have rented a place in Chehalis, WA to see how we like it up there in the summers. You know, avoid the Tucson heat! The plan is to do some biking, hiking and playing music with friends. It’s not far from Ray and Barb’s place in Centralia where we will be going to the campout after this. (See listing in schedule).

I will be available for private lessons and we can set up a workshop or two if you like. Let’s talk!

A modern day troubadour in the truest sense of the word, Dan is a full time musician who travels the country with fiddle and banjo, singing songs and telling stories of the road, his musical journey and his Southern Appalachian roots. Read more about Dan’s show!

All day, every day.

Centralia Campout

This event is one where you mostly come to camp, jam and hang with friends. Lots of music!

I have been asked to do a daily workshop around 10 am each day which is donation only. Last year it was a repertoire workshop and we covered a couple of tunes each day. It was VERY well received so that will be the plan for this year. IF you want something different or additional, just ask and we can make it work.

Squirrelly Dan and the Rounders will be doing one of the evening dances as well.

I will also be on site for private lessons and of course jamming.

There is no mailing address.
However, if you enter 1210 K St., Centralia, WA 98531
as your destination, it should lead you to nearly where you need to be.
Continue straight down the gravel road until you come to
the ‘mowed, grass road. You have arrived at the COTMC!

Detailed directions are on the website as well as train info.
