January 2004

Hi, My name is Daniel. I'm a composer, pianist, and vocalist. I have degrees in composition and piano from Syracuse University and the University of Tampa. I've taught music theory at the college level, private piano, and also have served as a vocal coach and voice teacher for students of all ages. I also have been a music director, conductor, arranger, and accompanist for numerous musical theater productions. For my voice instruction, I always aim to give my students the best chance at success by honing their technique and understanding how their voice actually works. Many voice teachers and vocal coaches can offer arbitrary suggestions as to how to improve your singing, not me. I will help you understand how your voice really works, and how to properly, safely, and confidently use your instrument, and take you to the next level. My clients range from those simply wanting to sing for fun, to professionals. My professional clients have booked jobs at every level. From regional productions, to cruise ships, to Broadway National Tours. For my music theory instruction, I aim to help students really understand the intricacies of music through practical analysis, listening, and observation. Are you a music theory beginner? Need help with your AP theory exam, college theory exams, or graduate entrance exams? I can help. Finally, for Composition students, I aim to help them develop their own personal voice while simultaneously expanding their knowledge and technique of the art of writing music.
