Dror Perl Dror Perl

Dror was born and raised in Israel. He has been playing the piano and keyboard since the age of six. He studied with excellent private teachers and had the opportunity to experience and study a varied range of musical styles--from classical to rock, electronic, and jazz. After finishing his army service, he studied at Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in Israel, where he earned his first degree. During this period, he received several different Excellency scholarships, performed and toured with the college’s representative ensemble and his own group, and participated and won awards in prestigious competitions such as “Jazz Player of the Year 2000”. In 2001, Dror moved to New York where he earned his BA in Jazz studies at SUNY Empire State College. During this period he also studied with the legendary pianist Dr. Barry Harris at his workshop. Dror has since played in a number of venues throughout the tri-state area as the leader of a jazz trio and duo. Dror performs his renditions of jazz standards as well as his own compositions and can be heard regularly at Louis 649 and other reputable New York clubs.

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.
