about

At 2009 I was already fully convinced that the Middle Eastern double bass is an exciting new field of bass playing, but I could not find anything online about it at all. Luckily for me, the WordPress platform was invented not too long before and I could start gather the information and put it online for anyone who’s interested

Hagai teaches double bass at the Eastern Department of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (J.A.M.D.) and at the Jazz department of the J.A.M.D. conservatory. He has also served as an assistant professor for music theory studies and ear training.

In addition to his work as a performing artist Hagai also teaches the playing technique he devised, and presents workshops for bass players and players of other instruments who are looking to enter the world of Middle Eastern music.

Hagai Bilitzky combines new performance techniques with the display of authentic musical traditions.

Hagai has recorded and performed over the years with senior international and Israeli acclaimed artists on the Arabic and Jazz music scenes.
