Danylo Dmyterko was born in Vienna in 1996. As a son of two well trained musicians, his love for music was no surprise.
First starting out on the piano, Danylo picked up the drumset when he was 11 years old. From then on, he invested all his time and love into the instrument.
Age 14 he got accepted in the Viennese Conservatory (Konservatorium Wien Privatuniversität), and studied classical percussion alongside being a student at the Viennese high school of music (Musikgymnasium Wien). During this time Danylo performed with multiple orchestras and ensembles, mainly in the classical style of music. While he was primarily trained the classical tradition, his passion had always been the Drumset. After quitting his studies at the conservatory in 2013, he studied with many teachers in Austria, such as like Aaron Thier, Sebastian Lanser, Harald Tanschek and Moritz Pedarnig. They were all preparing him for his big dream, getting accepted into the Berklee College of Music.
December 2013 he got accepted and he started his studies at BCM in September 2015, with the help of scholarship assistance.

Teachers he studied with at Berklee include Casey Scheuerell, Kim Plainfield, Henrique de Almeida, Dave DiCenso, Neal Smith, Jon Hazilla, John Ramsay. 

At age 22 Danylo already has gathered a lot of experience on many different stages and playing different genres. He has performed with Orchestras, Fusion Bands, Jazz Combos and participated in countless Jam Sessions in Vienna (AUT) as well as in Boston (MA) and New York City.

His most recent musical accomplishments were performing at the 2016 Beantown Jazz Festival in Boston, playing at the 2017 and 2018 Berklee High School Jazz Festival, playing a headlining show at Berklee's very own Berklee Performance Center (BPC) with his band 7th Degree, releasing a music video under Berklee's channel with the same band (7th Degree) as well as opening up for the popular The Fray. 7th Degree is frequently booked for corporate events organized by Berklee and gets through that the opportunities to meet people including Emilio and Gloria Estefan. 

Since 2017 Danylo has been a drum teacher at the international music camp “Camp Styria“ located in Schladming/Austria.
Though the camp is mainly focusing on classical music, Danylo has been selected to offer drumset workshops for the percussion students.
He teaches Hand Technique, Coordination, Drumset Interpretation and Improvisation.

Danylo is also regularly receiving achievement grants for his extraordinary academic success and has been on the Dean's List since his first semester. 
 

His goal is to work as a performing Drummer, Clinician and Educator around the world.
