Hi, my name is Daniel… aka The Music Hermit!
Since 2011, I’ve been a full time professional musician, songwriter/producer and guitar teacher living in the European musical capital of London. I’ve been earning a living playing guitar, bass and singing with dozens of different bands around London, the UK and Europe. I get to perform on a weekly basis with many of the UK’s top cover bands. I’ve been teaching guitar since 2006, and at this point I’ve taught hundreds of students both in music schools as well as privately. I also work as a writer, composer and producer, composing songs for TV, movies and radio and producing music for artists. I also write and produce my own music, and am consistently coming up with new creative musical projects.
This website has two main purposes :
1) To serve as an information resource for anybody who wants to become a better musician, songwriter, producer, or for those looking for more information on how to get started with making their own music.
2) It’s platform for showcasing my own musical portfolio
I want to impart and share all the knowledge I’ve gathered over the years I’ve spent being a musician, producer and teacher, and immortalise it in digital, https based form. I hope to take all the value that has been shared with me over the years, from colleagues, friends, and mentors both online and in the physical world, and to give it back to those who would find it useful at this point in their lives. If I can inspire even one person to pick up a musical instrument or start writing songs, then I feel like I’ve fulfilled my mission! Ultimately I’m just a guy with more guitars than he realistically needs, an annoying tendency to overthink everything and a very nice pair of suede shoes. But if you take one thing away from all of this rambling, please let it be the following : every single word you read throughout this website has been written by me, and comes from as honest and truthful a place as I can muster.
My hope is that I can build a relationship with you, who are visiting this website, a relationship that’s based on trust and confidence. I certainly don’t proclaim to be right about everything, but I d think that over the years, I’ve gained enough knowledge to be able to speak about certain topics with a certain degree of confidence. It is for this reason that I believe you will find the information I share on this website useful, practical and applicable.
