Yaron Herman (born 12 July 1981) is an Israeli jazz pianist now living in Paris.
Yaron Herman was born in Tel-Aviv on 12 July 1981. He started to learn the piano at 16 using a methodology based on philosophy, mathematics and psychology. Two years later, Yaron earned the Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music "Junior talent" prize. He started performing in Israel at the Tel-Aviv Museum, the Tel-Aviv Cinematek, The Camelot, Givataim Theatre, Beit Lesin Theatre, and Einav Center. At the age of 19, Yaron moved to Boston, where he intended to attend the Berklee College of Music but rapidly preferred to start his career in Paris. When he was 21, he recorded his first album, Takes 2 to Know 1, with Sylvain Ghio, produced for the Sketch label.
Yaron Herman's style reflects the influence of jazz musicians and pianists such as Keith Jarrett, Paul Bley, Lennie Tristano and Brad Mehldau, modern pop artists such as Björk, Sting and Olivia, and classical composers such as Alexander Scriabin and Maurice Ravel.
