Daniel McIntyre has been dedicated to studying the piano since 2008, when he first started playing. He quickly grasped the art of piano performance and was accepted in the music program at West Chester University in PA. Throughout his time at WCU, Dan performed numerous recitals and concerts; solo and with ensembles. Most notable was his performance at Carnegie Hall with WCU's Wind Ensemble performing David Maslanka's Symphony No. 4. He also taught private piano lessons to students of all ages.
In 2018, Dan moved to Boulder to attend University of Colorado pursuing a Master of Music in Piano Performance. During his time at CU Boulder, he found a passion for Russian music and culture of the 20th century. While studying relatively unknown and underappreciated pieces, Dan performed frequently in solo recitals, ensemble groups, and master classes, while also teaching piano lessons through the CU Youth Piano Program.
Dan has invested himself in pedagogical studies. He has taught a wide range of ages and skill levels with the goal of inspiring creativity and musicality. Using a variety of techniques, he focuses on creating interest in music by sharing his own passion for it.
Currently, Dan is compiling research on Russian 30th century composers and hopes to create a market for pedagogical pieces from these composers, as well as record and program their advanced repertoire to provide emotionally driven performances of lost gems.
