Wasserman has performed in Europe, China, and Russia; in New York City at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall and other venues; as well as museums, libraries and events in New Jersey.

His classes were featured in the book “From the Cradle of Classical Music” about the 130th anniversary of the Cecilian Music Club.
Alan has led his students, many of whom are competition winners, and their families to immersive musical excursions in China, Russia, Germany, Austria, Canada and the United States.
