Daniel J. Armistead is a composer and saxophonist in the greater Philadelphia area with a passion for
performance and creativity. Over the course of his career, he has worked diligently with teachers,
advisors, and collegues alike to learn his compositional craft and mastery of the saxophone. Growing up,
Daniel was exposed to music at an early age, with both his parents being musicians, and through the
start of his piano and saxophone lessons in the 1st and 4th grades. While attending the University of
Delaware for his undergraduate degree in Music Composition, he studied with renown teachers such as
Todd Groves, Jennifer Barker, and James Ancona. He also performed in a variety of ensembles being the
principle saxophonist in Symphonic and Pep Band, a regular soloist in the Jazz Band, and alto saxophone
music section leader in the Marching Band. Although his primary instrument is the alto saxophone, he
also has experience playing all types of saxophones, trumpet in his University’s Collegiate Band, and
piano in his high school’s jazz band. Having composed over 20 serious compositions and countless
arrangements, Daniel has become proficient at writing for an assortment of styles. Many of his
compositions implement elements of neo-romanticism and jazz, exploring numerous statements of
minute motifs that develop and fuse throughout a piece. Many of these works have been premiered
while attending the university through the composition studio’s Society of Composers’ concerts.
Additionally, he has also written for several types of ensembles ranging from small chamber pieces,
choirs, marching bands, and even a full orchestra.
More recently, Daniel has just obtained his undergraduate degree in Music Composition from the

Corps in the summer of 2017. Furthermore, he founded a new Saxophone Ensemble with the goal of

commissions. In the near future, he intends on attending graduate school to receive his masters in Music
Composition and begin his lifelong career as a teacher and composer.
