About Caleb Hathaway
Get to know Caleb Hathaway
Caleb Hathaway is an adventurous, versatile musician, equally comfortable as a performer, teacher, and sound engineer. A passionate researcher, always honing
his craft, Caleb is currently writing about the intersectional relationship between science, philosophy and music, and preparing to attend graduate school as a
student of Music Theory and Composition.
Dedicated to pushing the limits of his craft, Caleb has performed, improvised,arranged and collaborated in Jazz, Persian Folk Music, Reggae, R&B, Gospel,
Country, Hip-Hop, & Classical music from the Baroque to the Post-Modern Era. From 2013 thru 2017, Caleb worked as a sound engineer and videographer. This includes acting as Head Sound Engineer for the Sacramento Winter Jazz Festival, The Millennium Series, Hindustani and Tradition African music performances, as well as the Festival of New American Music—the longest running free new music festival in the United States. This pushed his ear to capture more of each artist's vision and listen as openly as possible, posing exciting challenges in becoming as deeply immersed in each performance as possible.
Since 2009, Caleb has been carefully developing his skill as a teacher. This has included instructing all kinds of musicians, from professionals to beginners. Focusing a foundation in the mechanical relationship between air (space), the body and the mechanism of the instrument, he encourages and inspires his students to reach their fullest potential. Caleb brings a thorough understanding of harmony, acoustics, perception, counterpoint, rhythm, analysis, and the relationship between composition, interpretation and expression to all of his students.
Caleb’s primary teachers include Professor Laurel Zucker, Robert Dick and Jean-Louis Kashy. He has also worked with Mary-Kay Fink, Carol Wincenc, Isabelle Chapuis, Jill Felber, Robert Stallman, Goran Marcusson, Ian Clarke, Ali Ryerson, Dr. John Barcelona, and others.
