Our Story .  .  . 


Dan’s Music Studio  (DMS) was organized in 2006 by Dan O’Dea.   Upon graduating from Rutgers University,  Dan’s vision was to provide quality music education in vocal and instrumental music to the youth and adults of the community.   Educated and living in West Orange,  Daniel chose to open his business in his hometown.   In November, 2006,  he opened the school with one other teacher, serving 16 students each week. As enrollment grew, so did services and staff.  Lessons are currently provided in piano, strings, percussion, and band instruments, as well as vocal performance.   Group ensemble and rock band are also on our menu of service.   Our newly formed "Little Theater" allows us to give each student an opportunity to learn to perform on stage, in front of an audience.  


Dan recognized the need in his community for quality programs for children and adults with special needs.  As a former educator in the West Orange school system, Dan joined with the State of NJ to provide  music and tutoring services to the special needs population.  Today, DMS provides therapeutic music to individuals in-studio and travels to them for in-home lessons in seven counties. 

Director's Notes . . . 
When I was 8 years old, I decided I wanted to play the violin.  I'm still playing, and -- I love teaching others to play!   
I want to give every student the same joy I get from music..
