BM in Trombone Performance from University of North Texas
Awarded 6A All-State Tenor Trombonist 2014 from Texas Music Educators Association
I have been gigging, both classically and in jazz, in the greater DFW Metroplex for about 9 years. I attended high school close by, and I am the only two-time 6A All-State tenor trombonist in my city's history. I have completed two years at the University of North Texas, and have been teaching for approximately two years. I consistently double between tenor & bass trombone, having a great deal of experience in both instruments, in both classical and jazz settings. Outside of trombone, I also play trumpet/cornet, tuba, vocals, guitar, bass, and piano. I am an avid rock/metal listener, and compose my own music, mainly fusing metal and jazz. Because of this, I feel this makes me an extremely diverse instrumentalist. I have studied with such influential figures as Tony Baker (UNT, Dallas Opera Orchestra), Steve Menard (UNT, Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra), Dennis Bubert (UT Arlington, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra), and more.
Daniel began playing music in 6th grade. His dad is a guitarist/vocalist/flautist (he gigs in the south DFW area) and brought him up in a very musical household. Since then, Daniel has played with groups such as Scott & Steve, Big Gus & Swampadelic, the Pecos River Brass Big Band, and the Fort Wor

B.A. in Music from University of Minnesota
Teaching since 2019
I am a composer at heart, and a longtime music theory nerd. I have composed pieces for solo piano, rock bands, electronic music productions, piano trios, and even symphony orchestras. My love of music theory began in my teenage years when I wanted to investigate what it was about certain pieces of music that were so unexpectedly beautiful and emotionally compelling. I now have a solid grasp on the harmonic and formal structures that underlie classical, jazz, pop, and rock music, and this is the knowledge I will pass along to you to help you write music that is compelling and meaningful.
We will take a look at the music that has moved you in the past in order to give you a harmonic vocabulary, and we will also look at some music you haven't heard before as a way of stretching your awareness.
We can also discuss the psychological roadblocks people often run into when they compose, and discuss how the creative process works.
I would love having you as a student, so I hope you'll
