About Caleb Hathaway
Passionate and dedicated to pushing the limits of his craft, Caleb has performed, improvised, arranged and collaborated in Jazz, Persian Folk Music, Reggae, R&B, Gospel, Hip-Hop, & Classical music from the Baroque to the Post-Modern Era.
From 2013 through 2017, Caleb worked as a sound engineer and videographer.

Since 2009, Caleb has been developing his skill as a teacher. This has included instructing musicians of all ages and backgrounds, while focusing on a foundation in the mechanical relationship between air(space), the body, and the mechanism of the instrument. Formerly a teaching assistant to Tatiana Scott at California State University, Caleb encourages students to form a positive relationship with transcription, analysis, interpretation, and expression through increasing awareness of what is happening physically in a performance.
