Meet Mr. Dan
Hello Prospective Student,
My name is Daniel Erdahl or as kids often call me, Mr. Dan. I have been playing and studying music for nearly 30 years, and teaching for 20. I play and teach many, many styles. I started playing rock and blues as a kid, later becoming very focused on classical guitar. Over the years I have picked up several other instruments including ukulele, mandolin, banjo, drums, bass, vocals, and piano.
I decided in 2006 that I wanted to be a full-time professional music teacher, and developed a studio of 60 students a week. By 2008 I decided to open a larger music studio and hire teachers. Summer of 2008 I launched Broadway Music Academy in Orlando, FL, with 15 teachers instructing up to 300 students a week, and a retail store.
I currently call Bayonne, NJ home with my wonderful daughter.
In Jersey City, Bayonne, and Hoboken I teach fun inspiring music classes in private schools, private lessons in students homes and at Metropolis Music.

I took guitar lessons from Dan for many years. He helped me establish great fundamental techniques and made lessons fun. He would always ask what I wanted to learn about and made it a very personalized experience. Dan is the main reason I stuck with the instrument. I had taken guitar lessons prior but the instructor was dry and uninspired, switching to Dan was the best decision I could have made.
My 9 year old really loves his guitar lessons with Dan. Dan has inspired him to learn new songs and to keep practicing, which can be challenging at this age. Lessons with Dan are the highlights of my son's week. Dan is always on time and we never had any issues with scheduling. We both highly recommend Dan.
I started taking lessons with Dan randomly but quickly grew to enjoy and appreciate his unassuming style and incredible versatility so much that I signed up both my kids. And now they love him too. I can't recommend Dan highly enough.
