Sometimes it takes a little while to get going, especially when we're challenging ourselves.

Courses are a great way to keep yourself focused, motivated and on your way to start seeing results.

Why not book yourself a five-lesson course and you can look forward to being a different musician than when you started!

And this isn't just a "new customers only" offer - you can use it as many times as you like!


I really appreciate having repeat customers, so it's important to me that I can offer you high quality, regular lessons that are both enjoyable and easy on your wallet.

Hi there!

My name's Dan, a.k.a. monkthebassist

and I'm a Manchester-based performer, producer and songwriter.Welcome to my website!

I'm a professional musician, qualified teacher and avid music nerd who loves to help other people develop their passion for music. My goal is to offer fun, engaging, modern lessons that are tailor-made to each of my students.

When you book with me, you'll get more than just an instrument teacher; you'll receive personalised one-to-one sessions comprising more than 20 years of my own professional experiences, which have included performing live on stage, recording in studios and working in schools, colleges and universities.

You'll also receive my continued one-to-one support, video guides, listening material and practice materials, all included in the price of the lesson, hand-made just for you!


Whatever we look at during our lessons -

instrument Grades, writing your own music, learning to play your favourite songs or developing your technique - I'll make sure you always have something to take home and experiment with. That way, you can continue to improve your musicianship even after the lesson ends!

Subjects include:

...and more!

"I highly recommend Dan as a tutor. I'm a beginner on keyboard and found the lessons really fun and easy going.


He'd let me learn the songs/music I actually wanted to learn. He also gave me personalised info sheets to help me practice which was a great touch!"

"Lessons with Dan are brilliant! They're really fun and so informative. Dan always makes sure I'm learning something that interests me and fills in the (many) gaps in my theory knowledge.

He's kind, patient and clearly very passionate about music.

I can't recommend him enough as a teacher!"
