About Me

Hello!  My name is Dan Isgar, and I'm currently a senior sales associate at Music & Arts.  I hail from Marcellus, NY, a small town outside of Syracuse, NY.  I'm a 2014 graduate of SUNY Fredonia, with a Bachelor of Music in Composition and a trombone performance concentration.

At Fredonia, I had the pleasure of studying composition with Dr. Rob Deemer, and trombone with Mr. Carl Mazzio, former principal trombonist of the Buffalo Philharmonic.  I have also had the opportunity to attend masterclasses given by well-known composers, such as Jake Heggie, Steven Stucky, and John Mackey.

I have an extensive knowledge of all things band and orchestra related, theory and composition, and am well-versed in the Finale music notation software.  I'm interested in romantic, impressionist, and minimalist styles of music.

Recently, I have enjoyed performances of my compositions by the Columbus State Trombone Choir, and a recent performance by the Univeristy of Wisconsin at Eau Claire Trombone ensemble at the Minnesota Music Educators Association Conference in February 2016.  To take a listen to that work, as well as some of my other music, please visit my personal website:

Currently, I'm pursing a Master of Science in Arts Administration at Le Moyne College in Syracuse!

I hope to see you in the store soon!
