"Hi, I'm Daniel L., Music Director, Cantor & Music Teacher at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Rockdale and for the Latin Mass Community of Joliet, (Which rents out Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, Naperville weekly). I have more than 20 years experience as a vocalist and private lesson instructor and have a great passion for teaching musicians of any instrument and all ages on how to practically apply music theory and ear training; how to sight reading at a performance level; improvising in classical, jazz, and popular music of all genera; composing/arranging in any style, as well as couching ensembles and developing repertoire and general musical skills for real life professional gigging and permanent performance positions.

In my early adulthood I gigged as a trumpet player, guitarist, bass guitarist, (electric & upright), and vocalist in jazz, funk, salsa, rock, pop, classical and liturgical settings. After dropping trumpet as my primary instrument, I continued to perform as a vocalist and to teach both privately and in group settings in the Chicagoland area through my twenties and thirties.

I regularly perform solo and lead small groups and I am thoroughly versed in, not only the many modern styles of music, but uniquely very early music - and more specifically Gregorian Chant and Renaissance polyphony.
