Mr Daniel Mar-Molinero is Specialist Teaching Staff  - Jazz and Popular Music Studies in Music at the University of Southampton.

I teach Jazz and Pop Performance, which includes ensemble coaching and performance workshops. I also help to provide opportunities for students to meet, learn and perform alongside leading professionals from the jazz and pop world. Recent guests have included Tim Garland, Courtney Pine, World Service Project and Troykestra. I also currently teach the Jazz Theory module, which explores jazz harmony and improvisation from ‘The Great American Songbook’ to modern jazz composers such as Kenny Wheeler and Wayne Shorter.

I have been involved in education for over twenty years and have taught in many different settings, this ranging from directing youth ensembles to being Head of a large Performing Arts department. I studied for my undergraduate degree in Contemporary Classical Music at the University of Sussex and then completed my postgraduate studies in Jazz at the Guildhall School Of Music, studying saxophone with Jean Toussaint and composition with Scott Stroman and Pete Churchill.

I have extensive experience of working within the music industry in both the jazz and pop worlds. I have performed as a saxophonist and conductor alongside leading jazz and pop performers such as Julian Joseph, Billy Cobham and Corrine Bailey-Rae. My songs have featured on top twenty singles and albums both in the UK and abroad, and I have written and produced for a number of major artists. I also work as a composer, and have written for TV and film. My main interest is in modern jazz composition and I have been extremely fortunate to write for artists such as Abram Wilson, Denys Baptiste and Courtney Pine. I am currently working on new material for contemporary jazz orchestra.
