High Flyin’ Guitar

Dan in 2011, ready to take on the world!

Well, it feels like the end of an era.  After 4+ years as my guitar student, Daniel Walsh moves on to an exciting new chapter in his life, as he prepares to graduate from high school and head off to college.  My guitar studio’s loss is Uncle Sam’s gain, though, as Dan will soon be leaving Maryland for Colorado and the United States Air Force Academy!

It’s been a thrill to watch him go from a young teen playing his first chords to a young man with serious chops!  But more than being a fine guitarist, Dan is a quality dude – humble, coachable, kind, polite, and quick to smile.  We’ve had a lot of fun jammin’, but even more fun just hanging out and talking about sports, school, travel, family … life!

Daniel, it’s been an honor to share in your musical journey and your passion for guitar.  Here’s to health, happiness, good music, and some great, high flyin’ adventures in the years to come!  jb
