About Keith D.

I am a professional saxophone player and arranger who has worked for the evening music program of the University of Chile as a saxophone instructor and ensemble coach. During my studies at UNT I also served as a teaching assistant for the Jazz Arranging class and as a grader for Music Theory.

As a performer, I have worked in Latin American music groups, wind symphonic ensembles, big bands, saxophone quartets, rock bands, jazz bands, and both chamber and full symphonic orchestras. I would be glad to help you develop in any of these styles of music!

I hold an MM in Jazz Studies from the University of North Texas (UNT). I also hold a BA and a Professional Certificate in Saxophone Performance and a BA in Music Theory from the University of Chile. .

Keith Daniels is an exceptional educator, arranger, and composer. During our shared time at the University of North Texas (UNT), I had the pleasure of not only being a student of his but also playing some of his awesome originals and arrangements.

Keith uses a structured approach that gave me a very solid foundation as a composer/arranger. He starts from the basics of harmony/instrumentation and progresses all the way to advanced orchestration and intricate harmony writing. His music notation software of choice is Sibelius, but I used Musescore when studying from him and I was able to learn everything he taught just fine.

One thing I like about him is that he can work at your pace. When I was studying with him, I was in a class with three other students. We were all at different skill levels, but he was able to help all of us progress at our own rate, giving us specific individual feedback depending on our skill. On top of that, he is bilingual in both Spanish and English.

I highly recommend Keith to anyone trying to improve their Jazz composition and arranging! He will seriously help you out big time just like he did for me.

I had Keith Daniels as an Arranging teacher for a year. He is passionate about teaching, treats his students in a pretty respectful way, and always aware of the student's progress. Keith besides being an impressive musician is such a great human being, honest, patient, pretty open to new ideas, always on the vanguard of his topics, and a great listener who is always there to give you a hand in case you need it. I definitely recommend him, I've been growing with each session and changing my perspective of music in a positive way since I know him.
