Daniel Montoya, Jr.
Daniel Montoya, Jr.




Daniel Montoya Jr. is a composer, arranger, and conductor born & raised in Austin, TX. His oeuvre spans several genres, including original pieces and arrangements for wind band, percussion ensemble, and the marching arts. His works resound with bristling energy and color, and his unapologetically unique approach to field arrangement involves imbuing new vitality and dramatic elements into his charts creating a new and vibrant musical object rather than a mere transcription of the original.

His involvement with marching bands engages him throughout the nation. Among the organizations that have used his compositions and arrangements on the field are champions and finalists at various state- and national-level competitions, and major Division I intercollegiate bands. Montoya is the Brass Composer/Arranger for the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps and has written and designed for the Guardians Drum & Bugle Corps, Colts Drum & Bugle Corps, Spirit of Atlanta, and Revolution Drum & Bugle Corps.

Montoya’s music is published by C-Alan Publications, Row-Loff Productions, Tapspace Publications, and his publishing company, Underwater Theme Productions/Montoya Music. He is an Artist/Educator for Innovative Percussion, Inc. and is a member of ASCAP and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
