Oboe Mentor, Huron
Dane is an oboist and a senior at Huron High School. He began playing oboe in sixth grade after playing clarinet in fifth grade because he wanted to play something more unique. For Dane, band has constantly lead to new and meaningful friendships that have made his high school experience much more enjoyable. He is currently a member of Huron’s Symphony Band, and he also enjoys playing music outside of school while hanging out with friends. Dane loves the joy that music can bring and hopes to help others at Huron enjoy that same experience.
Outside of music, Dane is a captain for both the water polo and the swim and dive team at Huron. He also enjoys reading and playing board games, as well as spending time outside hiking.
