Dan Sartori was born in Rockford and raised in the Milwaukee area, where the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO) was a huge contributor to his decision to become a professional musician and music teacher. He holds a BM in Music Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a MM in Trombone Performance from Indiana University. In the greater Chicagoland area, Dan has performed with musical ensembles ranging from symphony orchestras to brass quintets, jazz bands, wedding bands, brass bands, trombone choirs, pit orchestras, new music ensembles, and much in between. As a teacher, Dan has taught every level from preschool to elementary, middle, high school, and college. He has been coaching on a regular basis with EYSO since 2002, and loves working with EYSO brass students!
