He sees music as a part of his identity and a reflection of who he is. He chose to study the viola not only because of its unique sound, but also because at the time, it was among the uncommon instruments to study in Palestine so he wanted to be different!
Many describe the viola as the ‘middle child’ of its family, and there have not been as many viola soloists as for other instruments, which was yet another motive for him to want to excel in it. Viola remains his great companion and he is proud of the wonders they've done together.
He graduated from the National Conservatory of Music in Jerusalem in 2012 and also had chance to teach there after graduation. He later on had the opportunity to study in Turkey with Nedim Nalbantoglu, one of the most famous violinists in the world, who specialized in Gypsy, Turkish and Jazz music. He was particularly influenced by this music genre because he was able to relate to it on personal and professional levels, in addition to it being a challenging genre for viola soloists compared to classical music.
He is currently preparing to launch his first Album “Gypsy Rhapsodies”, which embodies his vision as a musician through unique tracks that he has enjoyed composing.
