Right after his graduation he continued his vocal training at the “Rubin Academy of Music” in the Tel-Aviv University and was a scholarship holder of the “America Israel Cultural Foundation (AICF)” and the “Israel Vocal Arts Institute (IVAI)”.

Whilst studying, the young lyric baritone has already appeared on the concert platform and as a first prize winner of the “Francois Shapira” competition he made his debut with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra in April 1993 performing Gustav Mahler's “Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen”. 

In the course of his singing career in his homeland he portrayed the major roles of the lyric baritone repertoire, such as Don Giovanni, Figaro in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Conte Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Papageno in  Die Zauberflöte, Lescaut in Manon, Albert in Werther, Demetrius in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Dancairo in Carmen.  

The singer Dan Ettinger stayed devoted to his piano playing and teaching, and so he joined the faculty of the “Rubin Academy of Music” in the Tel-Aviv University and the “Academy of Music and Dance” in Jerusalem as a vocal coach and accompanist.
The success of the young artist was an inspiration and made a decisive influence on the development of a new generation of young singers in Israel.

Due to his tremendous versatility and autodidactic skills Dan Ettinger turned towards conducting, being deeply inspired especially by artists such as Daniel Barenboim, Sergiu Celibidache and Herbert von Karajan. The first opportunity came through an engagement as house conductor and chorus master at the Israeli Opera in Tel-Aviv, where he debuted in 1999 with Don Pasquale.

In the following years he acquired experience in conducting a rich operatic repertoire including Aida, La belle Hélène, Carmen, Cosi fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Evgeny Onegin, L'Italiana in Algeri, Madama Butterfly, Nabucco, Norma, La Traviata and Die Zauberflöte.
