Daniel Tucceri is a talented professional multi-instrumentalist who specializes in the four key rock band instruments; piano, guitar, bass and drums and has been playing for over 17 years. After having formal piano lessons from age thirteen, Daniel was offered a place at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music for a Diploma in Classical Piano. Although Daniel eventually decided to focus on playing contemporary music, he has received tutelage in both classical and jazz from noted pianists Alan Kogosowski and previously Allan Zavod. Both men have been an invaluable influence on Daniel’s approach to teaching since he started teaching in 2012. Melbourne’s most patient ukelele and guitar instructor
In 2014, Daniel wrote and recorded two solo albums (‘Tempest’ and ‘Impressions of Melbourne’), followed by a classical guitar collaboration (2015’s ‘Solstice’).

Included in Daniel’s repertoire are masterworks by Beethoven, Bach, Chopin, Rodrigo and Debussy. He has recorded on countless albums across a range of genres as a session musician for each of his instruments.
Daniel’s live experience has ranged everywhere from playing local pubs, to touring to national festivals and classical concerts. His unconventional and incendiary approach to performances have seen reviews describe him as an “eccentric piano genius” (Alan Bamford) who “decides to push the performance angle into the hellfire zone” (Jon Kromka). Beyond the stage, Tucceri has recorded for soundtracks, charities and the State Library of Victoria’s ‘Bohemian Melbourne’ Exhibition. He is also the current house keyboardist for sessions at Goatsound and Incubator Studios and has performed on ABC Radio and television. His soundtrack for George Gittoes’ award winning film ‘Snow Monkey’ led him to be described by Gittoes as “a new young king of keys”. Daniel accompanies Melbourne singer-songwriter Brian Henry Hooper (Beasts of Bourbon) for all live performances and recordings. Previously, he has worked with Mick Harvey (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), Matt ‘Skitz’ Sanders (Damaged/Gravetemple), JP Shilo (Blackeyed Susans/Hungry Ghosts), Mick Turner (the Dirty Three), Raul Sanchez (Magic Dirt) and Kim Salmon (The Scientists). Outside of recording and teaching, Daniel also curates the Melbourne Drone Orchestra, which is an open ensemble of guitarists working within experimental improvised music.
