“Earthworks mics have the detail and clarity I need in the studio and on stage. I have never heard my instruments sound this REAL!!!! AMAZING.”

Dan Delaney, originally from Boston, now residing in Arizona is a highly regarded pianist, entrepreneur, author, and dedicated and innovative teacher of the piano and jazz improvisation.

After attending Berklee College of Music in 1975, Dan studied extensively with notable east coast jazz educators, Dick Odgren, Paul Schmeling, Harvey Diamond and Charlie Banacos. While in Boston, Dan was very active in the jazz scene and through the years has performed with many jazz headliners.

As one of the first in the world to teach piano by video correspondence, Dan was acknowledged as a pioneer in teaching by Keyboard Magazine, television and other media. His unique method of teaching jazz improvisation has been published on DVD, online as well as in print.

Dan has also served on the faculty of two Phoenix area Colleges, where his enthusiastic and comprehensive approach was highly valued. At that time he also had the great pleasure of appearing on a special recording project entitled “Phoenix,” a tribute to the great Cannonball Adderley. Led by alto player Chris Stewart, the quintet featured well-known and respected Phoenix musicians and was very well received while gaining impressive reviews and Jazz Billboard placement.

Dan remains committed to his teaching and continues to perform regularly. His dedication and years of experience have helped him refine his own comprehensive and unique method for teaching piano and jazz improvisation, which he now offers via SKYPE and his Personalized Video Correspondence.

Dan is proud to be part of the EARTHWORKS ARTISTS group to help support such a wonderful product. Dan will continue to use the incredible PM40T PianoMic™ System on his instructional videos and live concert performances. He feels there is no better way to capture and control the natural pure sound of the instrument.
