From a world perspective the Rimon School stands tall for nearly thirty years as the only institution of its kind in the Mideast. Having been involved since the beginning, I can attest to the high level of teaching and commitment of providing students the necessary tools to make a life in modern music. A truly remarkable place.

"I spent a year in Rimon and it was one of the most significant in my life. I immediately fell in love with the relaxed, embracing atmosphere, encouraging creativity and freedom of expression, supplying endless opportunities to act, interact, and grow, while at the same time honing the skills needed to fulfill the dreams of every student on campus. It was as if the school was breathing, opening, and closing like a hand or a wing. In this artistically driven cradle, I met Gil Dor, one of the co-founders of the school, its academic director at the time, and my teacher. Gil and I have now been working together for a staggering 24 years, creating music we love and touring internationally. We recently gave a masterclass in one of Rimon's shiny new classrooms, a long way from the run down old buildings of the school's early years, and were moved deeply to see our beloved "alma mater" flying elegantly into the future without losing any of its character and warmth. I wish Rimon many more years of passionate education and encourage all who are curious about the mystery and beauty of music to join our family"

"Working with these young Israeli musicians was a pleasure. They can compose and they can play! They all know how to work together, prepare for a show, and be utterly professional when it comes to the responsibilities of a performing musician: attentive, supportive, grounded, connected and swinging. I was proud being on that stage with all these beautiful talented musical cats. Right on!"
