DANIEL LAUFER PELTON
(Music: Private Woodwinds; Group Music: Theory, Jazz/Rock Ensembles)
Daniel has been playing saxophone since he was nine years old. After winning several awards in high school jazz festivals, Daniel decided to pursue his passion for music into university, graduating from the University of Calgary with a B.Mus in 2018.
Daniel has many years of teaching experience, both as a private instructor and band teacher. Most recently Daniel led the University of Calgary Jazz Orchestra in rehearsal and performance of his original music, culminating in a live album recording at The National Music Centre/Studio Bell.
As an educator, Daniel strives to remind students of all skill levels that playing music is FUN. Hard work and dedication are required to make progress, but one should never forget how cool it feels to pick up your horn and play a few notes.
