Dorico Training

Dorico is a revolutionary new music scoring software from Steinberg. I’m a veteran of Finale but have completely switched to Dorico for my professional work.
I know the program intimately and use it daily. I’ve made it my goal to not only know every aspect of the program and how it functions, but to carefully consider workflow for maximum efficiency.

While there are many resources available for learning Dorico, individualized instruction is really the best. You’ll learn the fastest and most efficient workflow for your needs, which will likely translate to hundreds (or perhaps thousands) of hours saved over the course of your professional career. I not only show you how to use the program, but how to use it for you.

I offer private tutoring in Dorico through Zoom (or Skype). I’ve trained a number of musicians to use Dorico, and they’ve all benefited greatly from brief, focused training sessions. I’m able to draw on decades of experience as an educator, professional engraver, and published composer to help professionals quickly achieve proficiency.

Dan is a clear and gifted teacher who made learning Dorico a fast and fun experience. His excitement regarding Dorico is contagious and his knowledgeability in the programs features is bottomless...

Dan knows Dorico! After a few training sessions with him, Dorico has become an even more valuable tool.
— Rusty D.
Dan is very knowledgeable on Dorico, is patient with the learner, and gives helpful cheat sheets on many of the shortcuts... As a writer and arranger himself, Dan understands the musician’s needs.

Educational institutions are discovering Dorico is a superior choice for students. Its intuitive UI gets out of the way, allowing the creative process to flourish in ways that Finale and Sibelius don’t. I’ve taught all ages in the classroom, from elementary to collegiate, and I bring my experience as an educator to provide on-site training to institutions looking to make the switch.
