Dan O’Connor is a West Australian Academy of Performing Arts Bachelor of Music Graduate with over 10 years experience tutoring the next generation of Perth trumpet players in West Australian high schools and privately. Dan brings a positive “can-achieve” attitude to trumpet lessons and strikes a perfect balance between working at the appropriate level for the students, and encouraging students to reach for their musical goals.
Learning to play the trumpet is a journey and everyone progresses at a different rate. As a student, it is vitally important to have essential concepts and resources presented at the appropriate time for the efficient progress and overall enjoyment of the learning process. Dan offers lessons tailored to the requirements of the individual student, catering to beginner, intermediate and advanced trumpet players.
As a performing artist Dan has performed nationally in touring shows and series including Outcome Unknown (Perth), Make it up Club (Melbourne), Tempe Nights (Sydney), and at Audible Edge International Festival of Exploratory Music (Perth). He has also performed internationally in Germany, Japan, and Singapore.
