Dan Denette is a multi instrumentalist living in Boston, MA. Dan holds a Bachelor of Music Degree from The College of Saint Rose and has been teaching private lessons and group classes for the last few years. As both a School of Rock teacher, and an instructor for the more classically oriented Magic of Music Studio, Dan honed his teaching skills and ability to help students of all levels succeed and have fun learning music. He also plays sax/clarinet/flute in the 18-piece Joey Thomas Big Band. Mr. Dan has studied piano since he was a young child with top instructors in the Albany, NY area and is proficient in a variety of musical genres. He is familiar with the RCM examination system and prepares students on a variety of instruments.
Dan is especially inspired towards teaching the deep multi cultural tradition of American Music (Blues, Swing, Jazz, Rock, Country, Hip Hop). In his own words, “I believe in the accessibility of music, and the ease in which it can be understood by combining the American Music Tradition of Rock, Blues, and Jazz with more traditional methods of harmony.” In short, Dan wants each of his students to succeed and develop a deep and lasting love for learning and playing music. With that priority in mind, he is not afraid to “think outside the box” when suggesting repertoire to help students meet their individual and musical goals along the way.
