Daniel has taken several pedagogy classes at Yale University and Boston University as well as he has been teaching piano since 2010 in various institutions including Yale University, Jerusalem Academy of Music, and Boston University in addition to teaching private lessons. Daniel believes in customizing to each student and strives to make everything he teaches engaging and clear so that each student is empowered to be able to make their own musical choices. He enjoys guiding and watching his students find their own voice in their music. Daniel’s goal is for his students to become their own teachers outside of lessons so that they can learn and explore music independently and with confidence. He believes in a flexible approach to each student since everyone has different ways of relating to both music and instruction. Daniel is aware of the variety of experiences in each individual and looks to discover and develop their strengths while ameliorating their weaknesses. Every student, regardless of background, can improve his or her musical ability. Furthermore, each student has a different learning style, and he strives to find the best approach for each.
