Dan Lyons,
Membership Director

Holding piano performance degrees from DePaul University and a doctoral performance degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Daniel Lyons has performed in solo, chamber and concerto performances throughout the Midwest.  His teachers include Dmitry Paperno, Howard Karp and Mary Sauer.

Dan is a member of Con Vivo Chamber Group, performing in and around Madison.  He was also the founder of Madison Academy of Music, a private music studio in Madison that provides private instrumental instruction along with one of the country's largest and most successful Kindermusik programs.  He serves on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Summer Piano Clinic and continues to perform as a soloist and accompanist.

In his spare time, he tries to brush up on his limited Mandarin Chinese, and enjoys teaching his children and their friends how to play Chicago-style 16-inch softball - the kind without the mitt.  He lives in Madison with his wife, Monica, and three children, Kenny, Tatiana and Alexander.
