Dan Ripke

Ripke Studio
Brighton, MI
I have been teaching and performing music for nearly 3 decades. I am the owner of Ripke Music Studio in Brighton, MI. I work with hundreds of kids each week at schools and in private lessons. My private lesson studio has students ranging in age from 4 to 75 years old. My unique Pre-K music classes cover a broad range of musical topics and instruments. I have produced and recorded on several albums and have toured and performed around the midwest for the last 20 years. I currently perform and record with the Indian fusion band Sumkali whose most recent album “Tihai” was nominated for outstanding World Music Album by the Detroit Music Awards. I also conduct workshops and classes on subjects like music theory, songwriting, and recording. My life and career have been supported by the 2 main pillars of performance and education operating as equal partners in my quest for avenues of creative expression.
