...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Miha Haas was born in Ljubljana into a musical family and started to learn piano at a very young age. After finishing his studies at the Ljubljana Academy of Music and at the Royal Music Conservatory in Brussels, he began his career as a performer and teacher. Currently he works at the Ljubljana Music Academy as an associate professor teaching piano and chamber music (with a special emphasis on piano duos).

Besides the solo pianist’s career Haas focuses on chamber music, giving concerts in many European countries and in the United States. Also, Haas is a very active pedagogue and researcher. He is an advocate of modern pedagogical methods that don’t follow the path of conventional teaching and stress students’ independent thinking over professors’ authority.
