Courting the muse

Daniel, like many passionate and creative people (including you, perhaps?), defies simple description not only because of his breadth of talents and abilities, but also because of his broad range of passions and interests.

He loves to express himself through instrumental and vocal songwriting, through playing soulful music in collective celebration and ritual, and through helping people connect with and express their own musical genie!


“Do not neglect your music.  It will be a companion which will sweeten many hours of life to you.”

Thomas Jefferson

You can be more sound, yourself!

Do you ever wish you would get back to that musical instrument you played as a kid or break on out and sing more? Would you like to connect more deeply with your intrinsic musical nature? When you do so, you more easily access your inspiration and creative genius, and enhance your ability to interact with others in all aspects of your life.

Listen, Feel, Play – It’s not just for piano improv

Just got back from a dog walk, amused by the way in which one alpha can shift to… beta? (non-alpha? anything-but-alpha? who me—alpha?) in the presence of another. My charge went bounding after a dog clear across the park as if, upon arrival, they would both go flying across town from the sheer momentum of …

In the beginning

Part of my amazement was how easily the shockingly life-changing was embedded so smoothly in the familiar. I mean, that’s part of the point, isn’t it, to have enough of the basic need for safety and security met so we can springboard from there to the various escapades that the more adventurous parts of us …
