As a composer, Dan Román has developed a compositional style integrating elements of the folkloric music from the Caribbean, in particular that of his native Puerto Rico, with the mechanics of minimalism and the aesthetics of postmodern art. His music has been performed in Puerto Rico, South America, Spain, France, Austria, Italy, and throughout the United States, including performances in New York City. Dan Román has received commissions to write new pieces for the Alturas Duo, the New World Trio, The Irrelevants, the Connecticut Children’s Choir, the Hartford Commissions project, and others.

In recent years Dan Román has had the opportunity to teach courses in the music of the 20th century, post-colonial Latin America, and a brand new course in music technology which explores areas of electronic, MIDI, and computer music from both a practical and a theoretical approach.
