Haerle has performed with artists such as Dave Liebman and Pat Metheny and, in 1975, he toured the U.S. and Europe with the Clark Terry Quintet. Dan was inducted into the International Association for Jazz Education (IAJE) “Hall of Fame” in 2003. The Jazz Education Network (JEN) awarded him the LeJENd of Jazz Education distinction in 2012.
