About Dan

"Life is short, art is long." 

– Hippocrates

Currently I am an Affiliate Artist teaching private piano students at Haverford and Bryn Mawr College. Since 2014, I have been an Adjunct Instructor in the Music Studies Department at Temple University where I have taught courses in score reading, music theory, and music appreciation. I teach piano and music theory privately in Queen Village, Philadelphia and also Wilmington, DE.  

As a performer and a teacher, I find essential to constantly study and learn new things. have studied in Paris at the European American Musical Academy (EAMA, 2017-2019) where I received various honors for my work in counterpoint and keyboard harmony. My recent studies have brought me to work privately with Philip Lasser of The Juilliard School (as well as the director of EAMA), and David Conte (Chair of Composition at The San Francisco Conservatory). 


My piano teachers have included Charles Abramovic, Susan Starr, and Émile Naoumoff .

In 2013 I earned a double Masters Degree in Piano Performance and Music Theory.
