"Encouraging, focused, warm and knowledgeable, Daphne instantly put me at ease and helped me gain confidence and skill. Her passion for music is evident and inspiring."
"Daphne exudes love for music and guitar as an instrument and process. She shines with clear, enthusiastic, patient ways of conveying the steps to a new technique. A natural teacher, accomplished musician, and sincere supporter of others’ musical journeys."
"I've been playing rhythm guitar for many years, but I've never played leads. In just one session, Daphne was able to give me a good framework for playing scales up and down the neck of the guitar, and by the time we finished I was playing beginning leads. She's a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher, and it's fun to learn with her."
"Daphne is a wonderful, warm, fun, and engaging teacher who always manages to lift my child's spirits."
"I thing I love about Daphne is that I always feel like she's right there with me, getting as excited as I am about the new things I'm learning. She's patient and fun and always tries to meet me where I am."
