About Avner

I started studying the violin at age 8 and I performed in professional orchestras and ensembles around the world. I moved to New York City from Israel in 2009 to study composition in Mannes College. After Mannes, I successfully completed a DMA in composition at Manhattan School of Music in 2015, and I am currently living and working in New York City.

I have a DMA in Composition from Manhattan School of Music, and I have over 30 original compositions including opera, orchestral, theater and chamber works. I am currently working on my second opera, that will be performed in LaMama in NYC in 2018.

I taught music theory and sight-singing classes at the college level for the past several years at Manhattan School of Music and Syracuse University. I know these subjects can be some of the most challenging aspects of music school, but I specialize in improving students abilities to read music, no matter what level you are in. have successfully helped dozens of students pass through the hurdles of these subjects.

I have a Masters degree in violin performance and I have experience playing in professional orchestras around the world. I played in the Israeli Phiharmonic and in chamber ensembles in Europe and in the US. I teach students of all ages, and I am Suzuki Certified. I studied with Hagai Shaham, one of the greatest teachers in Israel, and I personally performed much of the repertoire for violin including the Mendelssohn, Bruch, Sibelius and Beethoven concertos.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
