My Background

I studied clarinet at the UK's top music schools; the Purcell School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, where I graduated in 2004.  I spent many summers at Klezfest London, Yiddish Summer Weimar (Germany) and the Plovdiv Music Academy (Bulgaria) studying klezmer and Bulgarian music on clarinet, accordion and bagpipes (gaida). I was also very lucky to take clarinet lessons in Istanbul with the late, great Selim Sesler.
I have taught at all the major international klezmer festivals including Yiddish Summer Weimar, Klezfest London, Yiddish New York and KlezKanada. I also teach regular online group workshops with my duo partner, Szilvia Csaranko. Find out more about how to join the KlezmerPlaybook CLUB
