The Director

Mr. Daniel Pasquale is excited to begin his time as the director of bands at Pascack Valley High School. The chance to return to his alma mater to make music in the PV community again is truly a unique opportunity. He brings his experiences as an educator previously teaching at Montville Township High School, Eisenhower Middle School in Wyckoff, and Mountain Lakes High School. As a saxophonist, he has performed in groups of different shapes and sizes including large wind bands, contemporary groups, saxophone quartets, and even a Gyspy ensemble. As a presenter, he has shared his presentation “Getting to and Surviving Your First Year” at the 2019 New Jersey Music Educator’s Conference and team presented for the National Association for Music Education with Mrs. Argine Safari and Mr. Craig Yaremko. Mr. Pasquale received his Bachelor of Music in Music Education from William Paterson University and his Masters of Music in Wind Conducting from Messiah University.
