A brilliant classical violinist, Daniel Ziesemer brings to this course twenty-eight years of musical experience as a soloist, arranger, and publisher. With his background as a competent arranger with his own publishing company, Daniel is excited to help students discover their God-given niches for music ministry, coach them in their string-playing skills, and share from his experiences as the recording artist of four solo albums. His current discography includes Abiding, Everlasting Love, I Believe in Miracles, and the most recent album, Oh, What a Day!.
Because hearing is the first sense to develop in a child, Daniel’s musical training began before he was born, listening to beautiful, melodious music at home and at church. At the age of three, he began his violin training with William Führberg, and several years later, he added piano, organ, and music theory studies with Dr. M. Dean Kincaid. Since 2001, Daniel has continued studying the violin with Dr. Roland and Almita Vamos in Chicago and received coaching from such artists as David Taylor, Mark Zinger, Mauricio Fuks, Rachel Barton Pine, Alan Heatherington, Sibbi Bernhardsson and Augustin Hadelich. Daniel is grateful for the musical abilities that God has given him and enjoys ministering through music regularly at senior living centers and for special conferences and events. Along with his parents, he founded Ziesemer Family Publishers (www.zfpublishers.com) in 2011. Through both his company and his violin performance, his desire is to write and perform beautiful music for the glory of God and the edification of the saints and for his Savior, Jesus Christ.
At Sound Foundations, Daniel will be presenting classes on violin performance, notation techniques in Finale software, chamber music, tips for publishing your music, and more!
