A member of Wheaton’s piano faculty since 1984, Daniel Paul Horn explores a wide range of music as a solo pianist, collaborative artist, and teacher, his passion for all of this informed by a thoughtful Christian worldview.  He currently serves the Conservatory as chair of keyboard studies, and in addition to applied piano, teaches Piano Literature and coaches chamber music.  He is also a member of the summer faculty at the MasterWorks Festival in Winona Lake, Indiana.  As a performer, he appears in solo recitals and as an orchestral soloist.  An avid chamber musician, he frequently collaborates with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, enjoys working with singers, and has recorded for the Titanic and Centaur labels.  Dr. Horn received a DMA in Piano Performance from the Juilliard School;  his teachers include Walter Hautzig, Martin Canin and Menahem Pressler.
