Galper is internationally known as an educator. His theoretical and practical articles have appeared in six Down Beat magazine editions and his scholarly article on the Psychology of Stage fright, originally published in the Jazz Educators Journal, has subsequently been reprinted many times. Fast becoming the last word on the subject, his new book “The Touring Musician, A Small Business Approach to Booking Your Band on the Road (Billboard Books) is now into it's second printing. Hal is on the faculty of Purchase Conservatory and the New School of Jazz and Contemporary Music.

He has won a Grammy nomination and a Grammy for his recordings with the Phil Woods

Quartet and Quintet, was awarded a Distinguished Alumni Award from the Berklee College of Music and been a grant recipient from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Lila Wallace-Readers Digest Foundation and the New School of New York.

Hal Galper's music displays some of the best qualities of mainstream jazz. Hal's ability to select and arrange rarely heard tunes from the standard repertoire, his penchant for lyrical improvisation and his commitment to a dancing, deeply swinging beat, makes his music accessible to a broad range of listeners.

Jazz Bridge is a 501C3, nonprofit that assists jazz and blues musicians in the Greater Philadelphia Metro area.
