He previously attended the Purcell School, and has participated in many masterclasses to flautists such as Denis Bouriakov, Rachel Brown, Michael Cox, Sophie Cherrier, Gareth Davies, and Kersten McCall.

Daniel often plays as an orchestral flautist including as principal flute with the Britten-Pears Orchestra, Janus Ensemble and Oxford University Orchestra, and was co-principal of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and the London Schools Symphony. He was selected for the London Symphony Orchestra Academy 2015, and this year has successful auditioned for the Music Academy of the West and Lucerne Festival Academy.

Daniel has won prizes in several competitions including 1st prizes at the British Flute Society Competition Class B, International Award 'Carl Reinecke' in Italy (Junior Category) and 2nd prizes in the Bromsgrove and Ernest Bloch International Competitions.
