Daniel began learning and composing for organ at the age of 12, having regular lessons with Chris Totney (Director of music at St Johns, Devizes) and Dr. Richard Godfrey (President of SWOS and Organ Advisor to the Salisbury Diocese). After becoming a member of the Lyme Regis Organ School (LROS) and frequent student at the LROS yearly residential courses, Daniel was appointed to the committee as advisor in 2016 before its evolution into the South Wessex Organ Society.
He draws inspiration from the music of composers such as Alain, Durufle, Messiaen and Langlais but also regularly performs British Romantic organ music from composers such as Wolstenholme, Elgar and Hollins. In September 2016, Daniel was appointed the Honorary Secretary of the Charles Villiers Stanford Society (see below for link) and works with the society to promote Stanford's music through performance and through their annual Stanford Festival.
