I am a Juilliard Graduate and Kovner Fellow working in NYC as a freelance musician and teacher. I have many years of experience with Classical, Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Folk performance and composition, and am fluent on the piano, guitar, bass guitar, and cello. I have a studio in my apartment in Central Harlem and am friendly and flexible. I am passionate about pedagogy and consider it an important part of being a musician. I take students of all ages, and am happy to work with kids as well as adults. I've taught private students in the past and have given several masterclasses in Toronto, Las Vegas, and Boston, and can get recommendations from teachers and administrators at Juilliard.
I'm looking for students who are looking to partake in the joy of music.
Everybody can play music, and I enjoy seeing people learn to make it themselves and be changed by it.
Mr. Hass is a talented and generous teacher. His depth and breadth of musical knowledge is inspiring. In three months of weekly study, i’ve learned to play several pieces on the cello and feel able to study more on my own. I’ve wanted to play cello since I was young, and was concerned about my age, as I am now retired, but Mr. Hass has shown me you certainly can teach an old dog new tricks!
I want to help students find their personal way of expressing themselves through music. Because music has infinite permutations, every student can learn to identify their unique musical language, what their ear is attracted to and what they can do on an instrument. My job is to inform the student, whatever level they're in, about musical vocabulary and technique. It may take a lot of patience, but I'm happy to teach absolutely anyone.
I've played music since I was a kid and have been educated at the Israel Conservatory in Tel Aviv, the Royal conservatory in Toronto, the New England Conservatory in Boston, and the Juilliard School in New York.
I charge 40$ an hour and prefer that students come to my studio, but depending on location and the student's financial needs, both are negotiable.
Teaching is everywhere and everyday! I started teaching officailly this summer, but it's something I'm excited and confident about.
High-school, Elementary, College.
Playing a concert with a friend, it's a great feeling when you get in the zone with someone you know well.
Trust the teacher, but trust yourself more.
What is your goal? Are you passionate about music? Only study music if you're doing it for yourself and no one else.
