Welcoming Daniel Green

Hi Guitar-lovers,

We’d like to welcome a new Guitar Teacher to Bruce Music.

Daniel Green has recently joined our Guitar teaching staff, and we’re delighted to have him onboard.

Like all our Guitar teachers, Daniel is a professional musician, in-demand in a number of areas of the industry.  He has a wealth of teaching experience, in both one-to-one and group settings.  He’ll be covering North London for us, including Haringay, Crouch End, Finsbury Park, Islington and Hackney.  He’s a versatile teacher, but some of his particular specialisms include:

  • Acoustic guitar Technique
  • Folk and Fingerstyle playing
  • Songwriting and Arranging
  • Developing the student’s own style and sound

The majority of Daniel’s non-teaching work is in songwriting and performance.  He has a growing reputation as the artist Laish – under this name, his beautifully crafted songs have led to the release of several albums and performances at venues such as the stunning and renowned Union Chapel –

One of the things Daniel will be able to offer in his tuition is a level of insight into the worlds of Acoustic Guitar songwriting, performance, composition and singing that most Guitar Teachers In London can not provide.

So, welcome Daniel!  And for anyone looking to learn or develop these kinds of skills, Get in touch!

Have a great week.
