Daniel Paquot, B.A.
Piano Instructor

Daniel, born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, developed a passion for music when he began taking piano lessons at the age of 6. After about 8 years of playing and performing on the piano, he decided to pursue music professionally. In 2012, Daniel moved to San Antonio to attend the Baptist University of the Americas where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. During his studies and continuing onwards, Daniel has gained 8 years of experience teaching private lessons both in Mexico and the San Antonio area.Along with teaching at San Antonio Music Academy, Daniel is a Professor of Piano at the Baptist University of the Americas, Music Minister Assistant and Pianist at the First Mexican Baptist Church of San Antonio, and the Interim Conductor of the Saltarelli Strings Community Orchestra. In his spare time, he enjoys both playing and watching sports. He also loves watching movies, Star Wars being his favorite.

Some piano pieces in Daniel’s repertoire include: Lizst’s La Campanella; Chopin’s Fantasie Impromptu; Etudes by Chopin, Liszt, and Scriabin; two of Debussy’s preludes; Sonatas by Beethoven and Mozart; and (of course) plenty of Bach’s preludes and fugues.

Daniel strives to inspire others through his music in both church and academic contexts. Daniel believes music is the most effective means of touching the soul.

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.
