Since 2004, Nicholas Daniel has been oboe professor at Musikhochschule, Trossingen.

The Trossingen University of Music enjoys an international reputation that is shown through many different international partnerships. The broad international environment provides a lively network of artistic activities and music-teaching experiences. The courses offered distinguish themselves through their emphasis on practical experiences and individual possibilities. The ‘Klassenmusizieren’ project has been created in cooperation with different schools and with the Villingen Schwenningen Music Academy.

The Trossingen University of Music offers many outstanding musical activities, ranging from contemporary chamber music to large concerts with choirs, orchestras as well as music and motion theatre productions. As a result, its activities in the Bodensee region are a significant part of the cultural identity of the entire region. Through partnerships with the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspielen and the Südwestdeutschen Philharmonie Konstanz, the Trossingen University of Music is able to offer additional concert opportunities to its students. Study options are complemented by international projects, courses and workshops, as well as scientific symposia, particularly in the  Rhythmics and Early Music departments.

In 2013, Nicholas Daniel was appointed Artistic Director of the Dartington International Summer School. On his appointment, Nicholas Daniel said, “I am honoured and delighted to continue the work of Gavin Henderson and John Woolrich at Dartington International Summer School. There are wonderful opportunities here to focus and recharge the work which goes on, and Dartington is a magnificent place to be creative. The inclusive nature of the Summer School will continue to be at its heart and I am looking forward to finding ever more stimulating and appropriate courses and activities for people who attend, as well as for those who join us for single events and concerts.”

The Summer School runs for five weeks, with 20-30 courses week-long courses taking place every day during each week – from individual instrumental and vocal classes to chamber music, large ensemble courses and composition. Participants can take part in up to four courses per week, and stay for one or all five weeks. Starting with early music, the programme moves on to classical and more contemporary music in the later weeks, with some weeks also having a focus on specific instrument types or areas of work.
