Online Lessons

I’m a college music professor turned independent educator-artist who has prepared students to attend top institutions, such as the Berklee College of Music. Over twenty years of teaching, I’ve also enjoyed mentoring many semi-professional and amateur musicians.

I’ll craft a personalized curriculum suited to your level and goals: classical repertoire, jazz standards, popular tunes, etudes, technique, ensemble playing, improvisation, music theory, composition, and arranging.

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

All levels and styles are welcome. If you love music and want to go deeper, I’ll do my utmost to help you on your journey.

Hope to meet you online!

Dan Cosley
