Daniel Ferreira

Born in Hollywood, FL, Daniel showed an interest in music at an early age and was gifted his first drum kit at the age of 10. He immediately fell in love with the instrument and joined the band programs in middle and high school, where he went on to win multiple superior awards at the state level and participated in All-County and All-District Honor bands.

Daniel continued his music education and graduated with a Music Performance degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, studying extensively with renowned percussionist and educator, Rick Dior. At UNCC, Daniel was a member of the Pride of Niner Nation Marching Band, traveling with the ensemble to France for a commemoration of the 74th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy. In addition, he was also a member of the Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble (including a concert with Vanguard Jazz Orchestra’s own Dick Oatts), Jazz Combo, Wind Ensemble, and Orchestra. While completing his studies, Daniel became active in the Charlotte music scene performing with Will Campbell, Ron Brendle, Noel Freidline, Kenya Templeton, Emanuel Wynter, Ziad Rabie, Damon Clark, the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, and Daniel’s own co-project, The DJaM Collective, who released their debut album “Perception” in 2022 and performed a sold-out album release show at Petra’s Bar in Charlotte, NC.

Daniel currently resides in Nashville, TN, and is available for live shows/tours as well as studio and home recording services and lessons in the greater Nashville area. Get in touch with him here.
