Daniel has commissioned and premiered several pieces by composers such as Sid Richardson and NY percussionist Kevin Norton. He gave a recital in collaboration with esteemed pianist, Andrei Baumann, in September of 2012. In 2014 he performed as principal oboe in a recording of Tom Oboe Lee’s “La Serenissima” and has performed with numerous orchestras in the greater Boston area. He has been a member of the band, Junco, since 2010 and regularly performs with the group throughout Maine and New Hampshire. The band recently released their debut full-length album, “The Night The Lake Stood Still”, in March of 2017.
Stackhouse has extensive pedagogical experience, having spent four years as oboe faculty at Camp Encore/Coda in Sweden, Maine where he once began developing his own passion for playing the oboe at a young age. In the Summer of 2015, Daniel was a fellow at the International Lyric Academy in Viterbo, Italy where he served as principal oboist. The orchestra, conducted by Stefano Vignati, performed in various cities in the Lazio region of Italy. While in Italy he also performed with the Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of conductor James P. Liu.
Daniel received his bachelor’s degree from The Boston Conservatory in 2014 and graduated from the school with a master’s degree in May of 2016 under the tutelage of Robert Sheena and Amanda Hardy. Daniel currently maintains a private oboe studio and resides in Boston with his wife and duo partner, harpist Jane Soh.
I currently accept students from the greater Boston area of any age and background. I pride myself on being a dedicated and engaging teacher, and understand the unique trials that can arise for oboists. I am committed to helping every student forge a positive artistic relationship with the oboe.
In addition to instruction in performance, beginner students will acquire basic musicianship skills for a solid foundation in the study of music. More advanced students will be coached in the complex art of reedmaking. I deeply enjoy helping others set and meet their artistic goals while developing a fulfilling and meaningful musical experience.
“Dan is a great teacher. I have had him for many years now at Encore/Coda and he has helped me so much with my playing ability. He works great with whatever skill level a player is at. The way he explains things always makes sense and he is a very nice person just to talk to. I highly recommend him as an oboe teacher.”
“Daniel is a wonderful teacher, my son has made significant progress in just a few lessons.”
“Time in lessons is always well spent and I always walked out feeling like I had made great improvements in just an hour’s time.”
“He gave me the exercises right for me. He is so nice to learn from for he understands what is the best for his student, and he pushes you the right amount so you improve, but don’t get stressed out or worried.”
“He is a thoughtful teacher who aims to teach, but also understand. His work with me on the oboe was hugely beneficial, and fundamentally inspiring. His love for the music and the instrument is at the forefront of his teaching, and he perpetually convinced me of my own.”
