In 2010 after finishing his A’ levels, Daniel travelled to the United Kingdom to begin his Bachelor of Arts at the Leeds College of Music. During those three years, he was introduced to the double bass and had found passion in teaching.
At the beginning of 2013, Daniel obtained his Masters in Music from University of Queensland where he specialised in pedagogy and research in music education.
Since his return to Malaysia, Daniel has committed himself as a cello and double bass teacher. Along with teaching, he plays actively with the Selangor Philharmonic Orchestra.
