    This is wonderful news about one of our excellent University of Dayton music graduates! It also recognizes the importance of music education in some school quarters at a time when the arts are being cut in many schools. We are proud of Dan!

    Dan was an outstanding student continues to be an outstanding music educator. It was an honor to have him as a student. I know his students love and respect him as much as me, my colleagues and his UD friends did. I still laugh at the day that I had to dress up as Dan because I lost the bet between us about who would win the presidential race. You're the greatest Dan. Keep up the good work. I know there is a National Teacher of the Year in your future.

    Definitely a wonderful teacher! The students and parents of Br Rice and Mother McAuley band are so grateful for him. He has made such a difference. He also has been an inspiration for my daughter!

    I could not be prouder of Dan. He was an outstanding student who worked in the music office when I served as Department Chair. We knew then that Dan would be an amazing educator! Keep teaching, Dan!!
