Dane Bonecutter

Dane majored in String Bass/Cello, with a minor in Voice, but the curriculum at VanderCook required the mastery of every instrument in the band and orchestra. His experience is vast having performed with such jazz notables as Count Basie, Oscar Peterson, Stan Kenton, Steve Allen, Bobby Shew, Jamie Abersold, and bluegrass artists The Seldom Scene, Bill Monroe, Ronnie Stoneman, Michael Miles, and Brad Oviatt.
Dane is well-acquainted with developmental literature, and able to utilize traditional training techniques, as well as Suzuki, Solfeggio, and other such methods. With both formal education and “real world” musical experience, Dane is uniquely qualified to teach a broad range of instrumental music, from beginners to advanced students, including strings, woodwinds, brass, keyboard and percussion.
