Hey everyone! Welcome to Music on the D Lo!
My name is Dan Lopatka and I am a bassist from Chicago, IL. I hold two degrees in jazz bass performance (B.A. and M.M.) and have performed with many notable musicians including four-time Grammy nominee Stefon Harris, Emmy Award-winning composer Orbert Davis, and Motown sensation Martha Reeves.
Here, you will find lessons for both bass and guitar. I will also be including general music theory lessons for all musicians, so don’t feel left out!
