Bio
Dan Kokol picked up the guitar at age 15 & hasn’t looked back since. Influenced early on by players like Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen & Slash, Dan would practice up to 10 hours a day! Dan soon after discovered the music of Steve Vai, Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani, Greg Howe & Jason Becker. This changed everything & Dan pushed himself even harder on the guitar & started studying jazz & music theory.

Jump forward to the present, Dan is a highly in demand guitar instructor & session player.
