About Danny

Daniel Paschall was born in Exmore, VA.  Since everyone on his father's side of the family was a musician of some sort, and since he wasn't "in" with the "cool kids" at school (at least one fraction of every musician's life story), he decided to occupy his time learning an instrument.

He gravitated toward the drums because he found hitting things to be very therapeutic.  From age 11 onward he developed his talents to the point to where he started gigging with various bands around his hometown whilst studying percussion formally with Berklee graduate, Billy Barton.  After high school he relocated to Atlanta to study at the Atlanta Institute of Music. 

Over the last 10 years, he has worked/played/recorded/toured around Atlanta and elsewhere with a diverse list of artists such as  Col. Bruce Hampton Ret., Ike Willis (FRANK ZAPPA band alumni, 79-88), Emil Werstler (guitarist of CHIMAIRA and DAATH), Grant Green Jr., Keith Jenkins (musical director for JAMES BROWN band), as well as original projects such as From Exile, Alex Gordon hi-Fi Project, and NoJaboinga...along with a wealth of other talented artists around town.  He has also provided his services to various theater productions around Atlanta including the Georgia Renaissance Festival.  

He has also built up a hefty teaching schedule over the past decade.  He teaches according to the student, for no two students learn the same way.  He balances what they want to know (ie., favorite songs, how to play cool drum fills, etc.) with what they need to know (ie., basic reading, rudiments, etc.). He also has experience teaching children with special needs/disabilities such as Autism, Asperger's and Tourette's.
