About Daniel U.

I began playing the violin at age 7 and I have enjoyed every moment since! I switched to the viola at age 19 and pursued both a bachelor's and master's in Viola Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music. Music is always a journey and I have been lucky enough to perform in Germany, Denmark, Japan, China, and even in Carnegie Hall! I have been teaching for over 13 years and I have had students go on to play in Carnegie Hall, attend Interlochen Summer Arts Festival, and pursue degrees in music. There is so much joy in music and I try to always help students discover their own voice trough refining technique and constant shifts in perspective to solve problems and move forward. Music should always be fun and ultimately I want to give students the skills to teach themselves and to become their own musical force! Discover your inner musical power, learn to trust your ear, and have fun getting lost in the music!

I specialize in, viola, violin, and viola d'amore.

Daniel was friendly, approachable, and made me very comfortable. He was positive and encouraging and used every minute of the lesson to the max...I learned SO MUCH in just one lesson. You can tell he really wants to you to succeed. I can't wait to see where we will go!

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!

Through an intensive course of study along side my main focus I was able to take four semesters of music education classes. Here I learned about early childhood development, writing curriculum, teaching music with technology, and community outreach.
