Offering in-home guitar lessons in Seattle and the Puget Sound region, and online lessons worldwide.

Greetings! My name is Dan Cosley.

I’m an internationally recognized guitarist and composer with 20+ years of experience in music education, including six university/college teaching positions.

I hold a dual Master’s Degree in Classical Guitar Performance & Composition, and have published over 30 books.

I’ve prepared students to attend top institutions, such as The Juilliard School, and The Berklee College of Music, and enjoy mentoring hundreds of semi-professional and amateur musicians from around the globe.

Drawing on my considerable experience, I’ll craft a personalized curriculum tailored to your needs, interests, and goals.

My teaching methods embrace classical repertoire, jazz standards, etudes, technique, ensemble playing, improvisation, sight-reading, solfège, theory, composition, arranging, popular & folk tunes, and more.

Students enrolled in weekly lessons receive free access to my extensive video lessons site.

All ages, levels, and styles are welcome.

If you love music and want to go deeper, I’ll do my utmost to help you along your musical journey!
