About this pro

In my unique and creative method of teaching I always connect to the soul of the person and work with improvisation as well as with the analytical mind.

I compose the exercises for the students individually as well as encouraging them to play and improvise their own music.

I treat every student as a whole new world and build my method of teaching around their needs their hands and mouth and there musicality.
I would never teach twostudents in the same way or with the same exercises.

I believe that musicality is a gift we are all born with and my method as teacher is to uncover and recreat it as opposed to teach it to the students.

 I studied the piano with the renowned head of the European piano teachers association professor Carola Grindea at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama London as well as Joanna MacGregor the heads of the piano department at the Royal School of Music, concert pianist Angela brownridge and professor Bracha Eden.

I studied composition at the London College of Music with John McLeod and in the Rubin Academy in Jerusalem with professor Tzvi Avni and improvisation with David Dolan and with the Canadian professor Douglas Finch the head of the piano department at the Trinity College London.
I've started singing with several teachers including Esther Salaman

the head of the voice department at the Royal Academy of music and Gordon Stewart the head of of The Voice department lol Scottish Academy and deputy head presenter and producer for BBC Radio 3.

My principal beloved professor Carola Grindea has ‏specialised in preventing tension in performance and teaching the piano for adults.

She has written several books about the subject with introduction the  legendary violinist sir Yehudi Menuhin. 

She has been noted for her famous Grindea technique in making the body one with instruments and having a whole well-being approach to playing the piano as opposed to just fingers technique.

 Here is an article about my beloved professor by The Guardian : https://www.theguardian.com/music/2009/sep/01/carola-grindea-obituary?CMP=share_btn_wa

‏My teaching goes far beyond the piano.
It is life expanding and ‏miracle creating through the piano in which the piano becomes an extension of one's soul and the best tool and most effective instrument  to create the life that you wish to have with the most precious gift you have received when you were born which
is your imagination.

 Improvisation on the piano harmonica dance and movement is the best way to achieve this phenomenon and manifest your dream through the creative process of dance and music.

I have started the harmonica with some of the greatest masters in the world ever since I was 4 years old including Shmuel Gogol, Jim  Huges TootsThielemans https://youtu.be/MBcgc31s_m8 and also had the honour to have several lessons with the greatest harmonica player ever Larry Adler.

I have won many prizes of harmonica ‏competitions songwriting, piano and in composition.
I have played in some of the most important concert halls in the world including the Barbican Centre and the Southbank Centre in London as well as on radio on TV and hotels cruise lines all over the world.

I have created a public piano portrait 
( pianoportrait.co.uk ) for Kerry Kennedy for the Kennedy foundation in front of Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Gorbachev and many where does in Milan which that famous Andrea Bocelli have chosen to record in the future.

This is my specialized art - to translate - transform any vibration or thought into a beautiful melodic ‏ethreal song.

‏I'm the only one who does this type of work in the world and only one who was invited by the american president to create this in a live performance for a charity dinner for the foundation JF Kennedy in Europe



The unfolding of each student's talent and unique musicality.


I believe that musicality is a talent we are all born with and my task as a teacher is just uncover it and free the students to be himself and to create his life the way she or he wants it through the music's creation.


As above so below

As within so without

As as in music so in life.

I love and cherish the personal  bond with a student and the individual personalised melody of himself the student compose on the spot which is a direct link to the soul.


I love watching how the student  grows spiritually as well as develop musically from lesson to lesson and how he or she learns to create their life and to  enjoy their life and improvise in it just as they do in the ‏music as in life lesson.
