Summer is Family Band Time!

Hello friends and neighbors, swimmers and climbers, workers and players,

This is the real thing….it’s summer!

For many of you that means it’s FAMILY BAND TIME.

You may know this already but just in case you don’t, there are many free music lessons on my website in the section marked videos.

The lessons include guitar, mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, spoons, banjo, and singing in Spanish (with Sonia de los Santos).

Basically, anything I know I’m trying to teach you. But Dan, you might say, people will realize that they don’t need you anymore and you’ll be out of a job.

That’s ok. I’m quite certain that the only way to keep the joy of music making is to give it away.

And I want to know that family bands are springing up across the country!

Here’s the link:

It’s hard to tear myself away from the stoop in this warm weather but once I do I’m always thrilled to get out and play.

There are some SHOWS this month that are certain to be quite festive.
