Daniel Fox is an educator, consultant, recording engineer and producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He encourages his students to experiment when making music and shows what can be produced through his interactive teaching demonstrations. Dan’s enthusiasm is contagious and says, “I aim to spark a sense of adventure and excitement about music and music technology. It all starts with a childlike sense of wonder and a healthy dose of fun. Lastly, I promote fearless experimentation with music technology, just like a jazz musician approaches improvisation.”

In addition to a technology instructor, he’s an accomplished musician. As he fondly remembers, “I once performed on bass with my live hip-hop band The Foundation Movement, as the headliner of a festival in Boston Common for over 3000 fans. That was pretty exciting!”
