Mario Dancso



Mario Dancso was born in Feldkrich, Austria in 1978. At the age of 15 he bought his first electronic guitar, soon after he was jamming with Jazz musicians from all over the world, making ends meet as a session leader in Vienna’s finer jazz bars. Five years later he enrolled at the highly regarded Vienna conservatoire, studying jazz guitar. After his graduation he started teaching at the conservatoire himself, where he still teaches today. Today, his work as a composer for international Film, TV and Theater productions is at the core of his oeuvre.
