About Me

Bio

My name is Daniel. I am fifteen years old and have been playing piano since the age of five. I perform at recitals, competitions, and in my school orchestra. I have also played piano at private events, local restaurants, nursing homes, and in Jim Brickman's Holiday Show. I have been a finalist in several competitions including Louisville's Got Talent for which I am currently a board member.

I enjoy playing bass and drums in my spare time. I have composed music for my school orchestra and love reading and traveling.
