Introduction: Hi there! I've heard so many people say that the cello is their favorite instrument...I'm guessing it might be yours too! It's certainly mine. I live in New York City and besides my work as a performer and recording artist, I am passionate about teaching my cello students. I welcome students of all different ages and experience levels. I have partnerships with a number of cello shops in the Tri-state area, so if you don’t have one yet, we can find an instrument for you together! In my lessons I use an organized and engaging method of acquiring effortless technique, as well as the tools to tell a story through music. I have a catalog of exercises and songs that I use to give my students a clear pathway to success, but I also believe it to be very important to ask my students what they would like to play. Often there is a song that fuels our motivation to practice, and that’s always an invaluable experience. A bit about me: I have a Master's degree from Juilliard in cello performance, and have performed as a soloist and chamber musician across the U.S, Canada, and in Israel, Hungary, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Germany. As a teacher, I've given workshops and masterclasses at youth orchestras and pre-college programs such as the Las Vegas Young Artists Orchestra, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, and the Israel Music Conservatory, and have been teaching a studio of private students for over 4 years. Besides my work as a classical cellist, I have worked with various contemporary artists in the Jazz, Rock, and Folk mediums as an improviser, arranger, and songwriter. I love discovering new ways of using my instrument, and am always pushing myself to expand my musical vocabulary. Teaching is an essential part of my work as a musician--my parents are teachers, my mentors are teachers, my colleagues are teachers. The ability to play music is an endless source of inspiration and joy for children and adults alike, and I cherish the opportunity to collaborate with my students on their musical journeys!

The best cello teacher I've ever had. Daniel learned from the best: Itzhak Perlman, Ron Leonard (Colburn), Joel Krosnick (Juilliard quartet), and many others. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable. His lessons are always a joy, enjoyable, instructive and rewarding. Particularly valuable is his light and effortless playing technique - an exemplary model for playing the cello. Thank you Daniel for your patience, pleasantness, charm and incredible teaching skills. Much appreciated!

I’ve been learning the cello from Daniel for over a year as an adult beginner. Besides being a great performing artist, Daniel is a true listener and eloquent communicator. He pays close attention to the student’s questions and knows his way to answer them. If you're fascinated by the sound of cello like me and would like to learn more about this wonderful instrument, I can't recommend Daniel enough for your first lesson :)

Daniel is an incredibly gifted cellist and teacher. He regularly opens my eyes with tips and tricks that change the way I play, or visualize, or hear, both my cello and the music I'm playing. All the teachers I had tried before Daniel were only helping me scratch the surface.

Daniel Hass


  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Students of all ages and experience levels are welcome in my studio. Starting with the fundamentals, we will explore and the mechanics behind playing the instrument, and figure out how to make it work for that particular student! Everybody is different and it's always exciting to guide each of my students through this investigation and discovery.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Master's degree from Juilliard, where I studied with the highest echelon of pedagogues. I have been teaching for over 4 years, both privately and in NYC schools, and have given masterclasses at youth orchestras across the country.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've worked with kids as well as adults--it's never ever too late! Playing the cello is one of the greatest, most fulfilling passion projects.
