Dan Kozar

Dan Kozar was born and raised in Welland, Ontario. At the age of 12, he became inspired by one of his heroes, George Harrison, to pursue his endeavor of becoming a professional guitarist. Dan's father, a mandolin player, encouraged him to learn to read & play music to attain his goals. With years of studying & performing, Dan acquired a vast armory of technique and musicality in the fields of composition & stage performance. In addition to studying at Eastman School of Music Summer Jazz Studies, Dan attributes his distinctive command of the instrument to his studies with Lloyd Garber, Reg Schwager & Ed Bickert at the Banff School of Fine Arts. A guitar teacher both in the Niagara Region and Toronto area, his accomplishments have led him to work on independent & promotional films and later this year, Dan will be recording with Ghanaian born singer/composer, Holly Boadi.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
