Her passion in these two streams culminated in a career path which led her to being the avid artist that she is today.
As a freelance musician, Danielle has coached many instrumentalists that have garnered much success in exams as well as the Richmond Music Festival and Kiwanis competitions. She has also been invited to perform in high-profile occasions, having showcased with Fazioli and performed with renowned vocal group Il Divo.
