Composer (Phoenix High School)
"Oregon Spring" (An original composition)
Dan Daly, a senior at Phoenix High School, has enjoyed music through the various mediums of voice, violin, guitar, keyboards, and composition for the last eleven years. As an avid lover of jazz and impressionism, he would like to credit his band instructor, Mike DeRoest, for his invaluable tutelage in chord structure and his parents, both piano teachers, for their impartation of musical cultivation and self-confidence. Currently, Dan is pursuing his passion for drama together with music as he composes, directs, and performs the score of an original musical at PHS.
