A bit about me: I am touring the world while running my online teaching business, playing venues with a band / solo, and learning from the best musicians wherever I go. In the last year I spent time in Australia, northern Europe, the USA, Sri Lanka, and more, picking up many musical styles and approaches. Originally I am from Tel Aviv, Israel.

I have a huge passion for passing on my knowledge and seeing others succeed. In 2014 I founded the blog GuitarSongsMasters-com, which is now one of the top five most-read guitar blogs worldwide (According to SimilarWeb-com), with a monthly readership of 100K guitar players.

I also created the accompanying Guitar Songs Masters video courses - that have gained over 70K students so far. Through the blog and the courses, I help guitar players develop their unique song-playing style, and enjoy music a lot more.

Over the last seven years I spent many months traveling through five different continents with my guitar. These days I am also working on an album. My music is often compared to the styles of Jack Johnson and John Mayer, so if you like them - you have to check it out! -Cheers, hope to hear from you soon.
