I have been a student of Danny's for over 7 years. He literally introduced me to the world of jazz and is responsible for the player I am today. As an older player, he structures my lessons to accommodate the rate at which I am learning and always keeps me moving forward. He challenges me to be a better player in a positive and rewarding manner. He is a wealth of information and continually exposes me to a variety of music to listen to and explore. I never cease to be amazed by his musical talents and can often be found in the audience at his many performances. His patience and teaching style makes him someone you will want to learn from.

Danny is fantastic. He knows what he's talking about and explains things in a way that's easy to understand. Every time I walk in with an idea for the lesson, he is always able to expand on it and do something great with it. His teaching really took me to the next level and my playing increased tremendously within the first few weeks. He always has handouts and exercises that you can work on when you get home so you can improve outside of the lesson. Plus, he's a ridiculously good player so it's always fun to watch him demonstrate what he's talking about.

Danny Green is one of the most talented musicians in California, and also one of the best people to get along with. He's also a fantastic, and patient, music teacher; always approaching a problem with a solution personalized for each student. I learned more from him in a month than I did in 2 years at a university. A good person, and amazing piano player, Danny Green constantly finds ways to blow his audience away. I catch every gig of his that I can!
- Mark W
I've been getting lessons from Danny for more than 6 months now and my musical growth has increased more so than ever. My piano skills and my understanding of music is constantly increasing since I started. Danny is not only an amazing musician/piano player but also a knowledgable and understandable teacher. He always works on your own pace which is nice because you never feel pressured or rushed to move on. If i wanted to get something down to feel more confident (scale, chords, songs, etc) he would work with me and do what he can to help me out. Danny is an amazing teacher and a real nice guy! I'm fortunate to be one of his students!

Danny Green - With You In Mind
...
Danny Green is a pianist and composer from San Diego who makes an impressive debut with this first album blending Brazilian and Latin jazz elements with a taste of mainstream and classical nuances to forge one heck of a recording. Except for Danilo Perez's "Suite For The Americas," a tune containing strong Latin influences, Green contributes ten varied originals running the gamut in style from the Brazilian flavor of "Baio Pra Voce" and "Doctor Pasta," to the beautiful mainstream title track and the classical finale "Lullaby for A Poet."
...
The following piece "Gigi" is a showcase number for Green where he dominates the melody only to step aside for a tasteful solo from bassist Grinnell. Green performs on the Melodica on the samba-shaded "Panic Nap" and shares the spot light with saxophonist Sprague on the last Brazilian influenced piece on the album, "The Last Minute."
While the majority of the music falls within the Brazilian/Latin camps, the best composition on the album has to be the title track written by Green as a dedication to his girlfriend, now fiance'. "With You In Mind" is a gorgeous soft love ballad where Green shines on the keys laying down excellent piano lines. The other tender mainstream jazz number on the disc is the cushy ballad piece "Off The Streets."
With You In Mind is more than well worth the spin, it is indeed a brilliant musical statement from pianist Danny Green, one of the new young lions of jazz that I'm sure we will be hearing more of in the future.
