About Danielle Summerville
A Musical Journey
Danielle started her musical training at age six, when she started taking classical piano lessons. Music quickly became her passion and outlet, and has been the center of her life everyday since. Her mother is a self taught guitarist/ singer songwriter and with her guidance she learned to play guitar at age 12. She always had a fascination with the harp and received her first harp as a gift on her 20th birthday. She started taking harp lessons right away and studied under Melissa Morgan, Naomi Alter, and Mindy Ball in Southern California. Music therapy was her major at Chapman University and it was there she was able to sharpen her skills and study all three instruments.
Danielle went on to play in a band for solo artist Mimi Zulu, and with her has opened for Macy Gray, Quantic, and Beats Antique. They have headlined the Belly Up, Music Box, and the Casbah.
Over the last 20 years she has since played harp at many weddings and events and loves to enhance any special occasion.
Now as a resident of Bend she is delighted to bring her music to Central Oregon and is teaching piano at the Cascade School of Music.
