Southeast Wisconsin is lucky to have one of the country's best pickers – a man who can not only play the guitar, banjo and mandolin like crazy, he can teach you how to play.

Bob Daniels' students say he "… teaches in a way you can understand – no matter who you are." And, "I learned more in three lessons with [Bob] than in six months with my previous teacher."


"Thank you Bob Daniels, for teaching me the banjo and everything else. I could not have done any of this if it wasn’t for you."
~ Rory Modlinski, Professional Musician - Nashville, Tennessee


Private music lessons for Guitar, Banjo, and Mandolin

Serving Muskego, Franklin, Oak Creek, Wauwatosa, Greendale, Greenfield, Milwaukee and Waukesha metro areas.

Some musicians are live entertainers and some musicians teach music – few do both.

Imagine yourself working one-on-one with a guy who was rated by the Musician's Union (A.F.M.) as "One of the Top Ten Improvisational banjo players nationally." Bob Daniels was featured in "Banjo Newsletter" magazine for recording at speeds of 280 to 300 beats per minute (B.P.M.) That's compared with a Guinness World Record of 210 B.P.M.

And yet, he can slow down to help you learn. His teaching style emphasizes music theory and improvisation, and includes banjo styles in chord melody, interoctive, single string, chromatic-melodic, and Scruggs style. He has used all the styles in his professional career – in live performances and recordings -- and loves sharing skills with others.

Whether you want to play one style or pursue the versatility of combining all of them, Bob can help you every step of the way. He works with aspiring pickers of all ages, all levels, and all abilities, including those who are blind/visually impaired.

Whether it's guitar, banjo, or mandolin, Bob Daniels' students appreciate his skilled, entertaining, approach to lessons.

Want to play good music? Tell Bob what you wish for and he'll do everything he can to help you get there.
