Description

Biography:

Classical pianist and educator Alan Wasserman has served as President of the Music Educators Association of New Jersey, the prestigious Cecilian Music Club of 1883 and, currently, the Shore Music Educators Association.  His passion for music has led him to study with international pedagogue Edna Golandsky, in part under the direction of Dorothy Taubman (he is a 28 year participant in the Taubman/Golandsky Piano Institutes), as well as world-class performers Alan Feinberg, Misha Portnoff, Veda Zuponcic, and Roberto Bravo. He frequently performs his Guided Listening Programs that combine commentary and piano performance.  Presenting programs at pre-schools through universities as well as adult communities, Alan receives enthusiastic response from people of all ages.   Wasserman has performed in Europe, China, and Russia; in New York City at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall and other venues; as well as museums, libraries and events in New Jersey.  He frequently serves as a judge for piano competitions and lectures to music educator associations. He has also served as judge for the Miss New Jersey Competition. His students include many area piano teachers and professional performers, as well as young players. He teaches a mix of standard classical repertoire (focusing on Taubman hand technique and pedagogy) and jazz theory for popular music playing (and classical understanding as well!) Wasserman’s "Music Hour" presentations, offered free to the public, given quarterly since 2005 in Freehold, NJ, demonstrate his commitment to community education.  His classes were featured in the book "From the Cradle of Classical Music" about the 130th anniversary of the Cecilian Music Club.  In addition, he created the educational audio CD collection, "The Guided Listening Series", which offers commentary before each classical musical selection. Alan has led his students, many of whom are competition winners, and their families to immersive musical excursions in China, Russia, Germany, Austria, Canada and the United States.  He was part of a "Monster Concert performance of 100 pianos that partnered students from the USA and China in Shanghai. Alan is also a Chi Kung and Tai Chi 'player', a black belt in Tai Kwon Do, and a student of yoga. www.AlanWassermanPianoMusic.com AlanWass@aol.com
