Music has long played a central role in my life, ever since my first piano lesson at the age of 6. I have studied with master pianists, won music scholarships, medals and awards in competitions, been a multi-instrumentalist and played as a principal bassoonist in orchestras, as a composer had my work performed in public by professional ensembles, developed a wide knowledge of musical repertoire (including a specialism in film music), mastered studio and recording skills, received a music degree from Cardiff University, and performed in some wonderful venues. Below, you can find out more details about my background.
Being a teacher is a wonderful opportunity to pass on what I know and love about music and the piano, and help others find and express the music in themselves - so I look forward to you getting in touch!
Best wishes, Dan (Goodrum)Pianist
Composition has long been a passion of mine with a particular focus on orchestral and film composition. My early love for creating music led me to composing several pieces for film at A-Level, one of which was chosen for performance by the Gloucestershire University Symphony Orchestra with myself as piano soloist. The final year of my music degree, I completed several pieces for a portfolio, one a piece for accordion and clarinet that was performed by the CHROMA ensemble and the other a suite for large orchestra, chorus and soloists. I spend part of my time composing in my small studio setup.Repertoire knowledge
