Daniel Gooch-Peters BMus (Hons), MMus, PgaDip

Core Team - Head of MfL Operations,

Daniel graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a First Class Honours degree, before achieving both a Master of Music and a Postgraduate Artist Diploma from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance on the saxophone.

Since graduating a number of years ago, Daniel established himself as an educator and performer, performing as a soloist and as an ensemble player both nationally and internationally. Notable performances include two concertos with orchestra, providing musical direction and performances for a designer at London Fashion Week, solo classical recitals and as a saxophone duo, and pop performances as part of a horn section and a saxophone quartet he established. He specialised in contemporary techniques such as circular breathing, slap tonguing and multiphonics, commissioning and recording numerous works incorporating such techniques.

As an educator, Daniel taught for a variety of music services before his post at Music for Life, providing saxophone and clarinet lessons in a one to one and whole class setting. Daniel was the lead whole class instrumental teacher for a service, producing material that was used as part of the whole class woodwind provision in schools across the borough, before becoming head saxophone and clarinet teacher. Here, Daniel taught instrumental lessons in schools, led orchestral and ensemble rehearsals and had strategic impact on the saxophone and clarinet teaching throughout the borough.

“Music for Life is completely unique from all other services I have previously been a part of. Music for Life truly puts music at the core of everything and it is clear that everyone involved shares the same philosophy and values. Everyone here is dedicated to deliver the best possible musical training to students, schools and parents, and nurturing the music within students, meaning they will carry it with them, for life.”
