Larry Daehn


Larry D. Daehn (b. 10 May 1939, Rosendale, Wisc.) is an American composer, arranger and educator.

Mr. Daehn grew up on the farms of Wisconsin. He received a B.A. in musical education from the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh in 1964 and his master's degree in 1976 from the University of Wisconsin at Platteville. He was a teacher of music for 33 years, the last 27 of them at the New Glarus (Wisc.) High School. A past president of the Wisconsin chapter of Phi Beta Mu, he was honored by that organization as Outstanding Bandmaster.

Daehn has composed With Quiet Courage, in memory of his mother, and As Summer Was Just Beginning. An avid admirer of Percy Aldridge Grainger, he has written several arrangements of that composer's melodies and an article on the Grainger Museum. He was the owner of Daehn Publications until his retirement.
