I'm a musician, teacher and performer based in Jerusalem. I've been playing a wide variety of instruments and styles since I was 4 years old but my life changed when I met the asalato!
With over 10 years of teaching experience and studies all over the globe, I'm here to make the asalato as accessible, fun and satisfying to as many people as possible.
