Daniel Jaggars is a clarinetist, guitarists, and conductor from the Scranton, PA area. Daniel's musical endeavors began from an early age, and he has since performed and collaborated with musicians from several different countries around the world. An avid classical musician, Daniel has performed with multiple ensembles including: The Ithaca College Symphony Orchestra, Ithaca College Wind Ensemble, Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic, Marywood University Orchestra, Marywood University Wind Ensemble, The Northeastern Youth Wind Ensemble, and various festival ensembles. In addition to orchestral playing, Daniel is also a lover and advocate of chamber music, performing in many different small ensembles and bringing programs of chamber music to local audiences throughout the Northeastern Pennsylvania area and beyond. 

In addition to classical music, Daniel also has a love of folk music, blues music, singer-songwriter style music, and gypsy jazz. He has spent many years studying these genres and continues to perform this music as a guitarist throughout the NEPA area and beyond. Daniel's love of guitar and more contemporary styles of music is as intrinsic to him as classical music, and he hopes to continue to share this vital music with audiences throughout the United States.

Daniel has studied with various different musicians at various different levels. His past teachers in clarinet include: Dr. Katie Morell, Pascal Archer (NEPA Philharmonic, New Jersey Symphony, Glimmerglass Opera, Camerata Pacifica,  Exponential Ensemble, Manhattan School of Music, Fordham University), and Dr. Richard Faria (Ithaca College). In addition to his primary teachers, Daniel has also attended masterclasses and festivals with various professional musicains including: Ricardo Morales (Philadelphia Orchestra), Lisa Raschiatore (West Michigan Symphony), Dr. Soo Goh (Appalachian State University). Daniel studied Clarinet Performance under Dr. Richard Faria for two years at Ithaca College. He recently completed studies in orchestral conducting at the University of Nebraska Omaha where he earned his bachelor's degree under the tutelage of Maestro Miguel Harth-Bedoya (Fort-Worth Symphony, Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Eugene Symphony). 


I beleive whole-heartedly in the idea that all students learn music in different and unique ways for different and unique reasons. Thus, my teaching style is defined by a student-centric approach, catering to the individual needs and passions of each individual. Additionally, though discipline is required for the practice of any artform, the lesson environment should always be wlecoming, inclusive, and enjoyable. I encourage all of my students to discover music in a way that grants them fulfillment along with the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed as a life-long musician. With a little hardwork, an open mind, and a caring teacher, anyone can experience the true joy of music-making. Let's experience it together!

My recommended texts and methods will vary depending on the level and goals of each individual student. In this way, I prefer to adapt these components accordingly in order to efficiently meet the needs of each individual in a rewarding and successful way.
