#1 Guitarist in D/FW on Gigmasters All Styles - Classical, Guitar/Vocals, Jazz Guitar
Whether you are a bride seeking music for one of the most special days of your life, or you're in charge of planning for the next big event for your family or for your company, I can guarantee you will be more than satisfied with my services. From the time I submit my bid for your event, to our first phone conversations, all the way through to following up after the event, I will respond quickly, and accommodate your requests effectively. Not only will you hear some great music, but you will also be treated to a wonderful customer service experience. I am in the service industry and when you book me for your next event, I am at your service!
Versatility is a word that is often times used too lightly, but I use it to describe all the musical genres I can play at a really high level. For some, that word means that quality is sacrificed for musical diversity, but I work very hard to assure that all the music I play is of the highest quality. Whether you're looking for an experienced, educated classical guitarist to add a touch of class, or someone to get the party started with some country or acoustic rock, I can guarantee a memorable performance.
If a small group is what you're looking for, I have some great options for you! An acoustic duo (guitar and female vocalist) can really give life to a wedding reception, cocktail hour, or any kind of party. Elegance and charm are words that come to mind when pairing the classical guitar with another instrument such as a flute or violin, and will make your wedding ceremony unforgettable. When you request your quote from me, be sure to mention the possibility of an acoustic duo or violin-guitar ensemble.
I believe that playing the guitar is not about pressing fingers on frets and plucking strings. In the right hands, the guitar is an incredibly beautiful, graceful, passionate instrument capable of expressing a range of sounds and emotions to which many other instruments can't come close. What it really comes down to is something a teacher of mine calls "the trans-formative power of music," and nothing would bring me more joy than to bring my music to your next event!
A native Mississippian from a family steeped in folk and bluegrass music, I have been playing guitar for over 15 years now, and have studied with some of the greatest players in the classical guitar world, including world renowned guitarist, Eliot Fisk. I studied with Eliot at the New England Conservatory in Boston, MA, where I received a Master of Music degree with Honors. I'm currently based in Denton, TX, where I am a student at the University of North Texas, pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts. Along with fellow guitarist, Bryan Burns, I am a co-owner and the Managing Director for North Texas Guitar Academy based in Denton. We have a small, but growing presence in the community, both in teaching and in community outreach concerts.

Wedding Ceremony in Idabel, OK on 07/07/2012
"On short notice, my fiance and I were in need of a classical guitarist for our ceremony in Southeast Oklahoma. If I had been given two years to find the perfect guitarist I could not have made a better choice than Mr. Dan Kyzer!
From his timely response to my GigMasters request, all the way through his beautiful, beautiful music during the ceremony and dinner, Mr. Kyzer was an absolute professional. His magnificent skill level and love of the guitar was evident to all of our guests. Some felt as if they were being personally serenaded during their meal. Although Mr. Kyzer had less than 10 days of notice, by evening's end he had gone from performer to friend."

Wedding Ceremony in pittsburg, tx on 10/05/2013
"Dan Kyzer made a huge impact on our wedding day, along with Grace, who did the singing part. Dan always made us feel that we don't need to stress out on the preparation and planning of our event. Eventhough, we had a catholic Wedding ceremony, he was able to provide the music with a few weeks to practice. During the reception, Dan and Grace were able to entertain everyone with their musical performance. (since the DJ we hired was not so prepared).
Dan Kyzer is very professional and will definitely have a good recommendation from us.
- Jeanne S.

We highly recommend him to everyone we know, not only is his talent made obvious from the first chord that he plays, but he is courteous and attentive to all aspects of providing his clients with the most exceptional quality of performance that he can give. We would hire Dan again without hesitation! "

Dan arrived early, quickly set up and did not require any special accommodations as he brought everything he needed. He is very talented in his field and met the approval of a gentleman guest who is very knowledgeable of guitar music. Certainly, I would request Dan again for another event. He was great."
