What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Evaluate the abilities level of my students and 

addressing the particular problems to be focused on.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Past member of the Jerusalem Radio Broadcasts Symphony; The Ramat Gan Chamber Orchestra , The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra Zubin Mehta music director , The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra 

And the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in the first violin section from 1978 to 2018 (40 years)retired since 2018

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Evaluate musical and rhythm abilities first;

teaching next posture and making acquaintance with the violin and the violin sound production 

As far as pricing I am considering the student ability to pay so there is some flexibility there.

How did you get started teaching?

I was approached by parents who knew me and wanted to start their kids on the violin with someone whom will teach the proper technique and approach to music.

Working full time with the Met for 40 years I couldn't teach but a few students.

Being retired now I hope to dedicate myself to teaching many students, I have a lot to offer.

What types of students have you worked with?

From beginners to coaching professional violin players for auditions.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Playing together with my Granddaughter who's 10 and studying the cello.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

It depends on the level and the age of the student
