Dan is a professional musician based in Manchester. He plays the cello and bass guitar, arranges/composes string parts for an array of different music and works in a variety of educational settings. Originally from Wiltshire, he studied Music at Manchester University before embarking on a post-graduate performance degree at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, where he learnt with Joely Koos.
He loves to play lots of different types of music and regardless of the genre, particularly enjoys the collaborative experiences that making music so often brings. He has particularly enjoyed performing in West End shows (Disney's Beauty and the Beast), recording in world renowned studios (Abbey Road, Real World) and performing at festivals such as WOMAD, Cheltenham Jazz, Edinburgh Fringe and Manchester International Festival.
As well as playing, Dan loves teaching the cello and helping others to experience the joy of this wonderful instrument. He started at Olympias in September 23 and is very excited to be part of the community.
Beyond music, Dan likes running, being in nature, drinking coffee and watching the cricket!
