Danielle Friedman Danielle Friedman

Born in 1991 and raised in Israel, Danielle began learning classical music at the age of 6, and very soon started simultaneously exploring the world of popular music.

Her fascination and love for improvisation led her to the world of jazz.

In 2010 Danielle started her studies at The Israeli conservatory (CJS) in a collaborative program with The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, where she studied with Israel’s finest musicians and educators.

During those years Danielle have experienced and worked with many ensembles, ranging in style and size - from small ensembles to big band, while working on her own music. She played in various venues around the country - from jazz clubs (Levontin 7, Shablul, The Yellow Submarine, Ha'ezor), to festivals (Layla Lavan, Festival Carmi'el) and special events.

After receiving a full scholarship to The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, she relocated to New York City during the summer of 2014. In the course of her time at The New School she learned and studied with notable teachers and musicians. In May 2016 Danielle received her Bachelor's of Fine Arts (BFA) degree with honors from The New School.

While Danielle continued to compose and perform around New York with her group Danielle Friedman Trio, she started an on-going collaboration with the distinctive disciplines of visuals and dance, to explore the ways of communicating through and with different artistic languages.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
