Alumni Spotlight: Max Bittner

Max Bittner, Class of 2019, recently visited Drew Cohen's music composition class in the Tzadik Performing Arts Center's music studio. Now a senior at Kennesaw State University and a member of the band Blind Jive, Max shared his experiences and aspirations in the music industry with current Weber students.

During his visit, Max discussed the critical role of social media in self-promotion and discovery for musicians, emphasizing the importance of both talent and online presence. He shared his personal practice schedule, with 4-5 solo sessions per week and weekly band rehearsals, leading to 1-2 performances per month across Georgia and Alabama.

Max also reflected on the value of his music classes at Weber in shaping his musical career. He expressed his admiration for the state-of-the-art equipment and facilities of the Tzadik Performing Arts Center, noting the incredible opportunity current students have to access such resources. He even hinted at the possibility of recording a future album in the TPAC, which sparked excitement among the students.

The visit culminated in a hands-on session, during which the class tested their skills by recording a "funk" version of "Eshet Chayil" and practicing student solos under Max's expert guidance. We extend our heartfelt Kol HaKavod to Max for his continued success in the music industry—we can't wait to welcome you back to the Weber recording studio!
