Bernhard Haaks - percussionist, educator and bandleader
is a native of Germany.

He began his conscious musical journey at the age of seven, discovering “in secret” a late evening Jazz radio program, presenting the music of Dizzy Gillespie and some avant garde jazz groups. During these hours,
his dream of becoming a jazz musician in New York City was born.
Bernhard is now experiencing music as an important part of his life and is pursuing music as a path of self-realization.

In 1989, he moved to New York City to fulfill his dream and to study Master Percussionists Michael Carvin, Lenny White and Joe Morello. Each mentor influenced Bernhard profoundly in his understanding of and approach to music, sound and drumming. Full Biography...
