Who Am I?
I am the Assistant Professor of Horn at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music, and the horn player in the Meridian Arts Ensemble and the Wisconsin Brass Quintet. For 24 years, I was also a freelancer in New York City, and I was the Chair of Contemporary Performance at the Manhattan School of Music. I also taught for 14 years at The Hartt School and for a lot of years at Princeton University.
My new CD should be released in February. Stay tuned for updates and details. The disc contains my own pieces, for horn (with lots of electronics) with bass and drums.

Quarter Tone Manual for French Horn
"I wanted to thank you for your latest and most welcome addition to my library of method books. Your volume does a great service to the art by advancing the discussion of possibilities that are not always exploited in the usual music we play on the horn."
-- Michael Atkinson, NYC freelance horn player (check out his website)
Twenty Difficult Etudes for the Horn's Middle Register
"This beautiful music has a wonderful bonus of working the horn's
mid register! Some recital-worthy pieces for sure. Bravo
and thank you Dan!"
-- Jeff Nelsen, Indiana University, former horn of Canadian Brass
"Thank you for writing your etudes! They are just the type of
studies I had been looking for. Most middle register etudes are either
too easy or just don't click with me musically."
-- Julia Rose, Associate Principal Horn, Columbus Symphony, author of Julia's Horn Page blog. Review here.
