It takes a lot of consistency to become proficient at most things. So, doing the things necessary to help students achieve the level of proficiency that will bring them their definition of success is Dace’s primary goal. Treating everyone as an individual, listening to them to find out what they want out of lessons, making sure everyone is feeling welcome, having fun, expressing who they are, practicing sound fundamentals, and finding a way to be successful every week are all vital parts of the overall goal of achieving the desired level of proficiency.
Has been playing guitar, songwriting, singing, performing, and recording music for over 30 years.
Has been teaching music professionally since 2001.
Started Rock ‘n’ More in 2005

Lives with Arielle and their dog Lemmy, cat Lydia, and 8 chickens Charo, Ruth Bader Chicken, Dwight, Sweet Baby Angel Marshmallow Princess, Dwigt, Michael Scarn, Michelle Obrahma, and Goldenface.
Plays in an “Americana-Yacht Rock” band with Arielle called The Feels
Was an extra in the movie Singles.
Did a 24 hour “webathon” with Arielle as a Rock ‘n’ More fundraiser. Says Dace, “The number of classic-rock-era radio-style ‘stunts’ that we’ve done over the years is really fun to think about. The webathon, the ‘air band’ on the street corner asking passersby to help these people learn to play real instruments, pretending to have won a fake ‘King of Maple Valley Days’ contest. We’ve had a lot of fun. Still do!”
Likes to garden.
Has a side-business with Arielle growing and selling microgreens called Berrydale Microfarm.
Makes wine with Arielle.
