Rimon School of Music—Ramat-Hasharon
The Rimon School of Music was founded in 1985 in Ramat HaSharon, a northern suburb of Tel-Aviv, Israel’s largest metro-area. The founders, all prominent and active musicians, addressed a growing need to build an academic institution for higher learning focusing on professional education in the fields of jazz and contemporary music in Israel.
Today, Rimon is Israel’s largest independent professional music school for the advanced study of contemporary music. More than 500 students and 100 faculty members work in this creative environment, which is designed to provide the most comprehensive music learning experience possible. The school’s goal is to educate and train its students to have successful and enriching careers in music.
The school’s mission is to educate its students toward realizing their personal musical goals. Through a dynamic curriculum and guided by highly motivated and professional faculty, Rimon is dedicated to helping young musicians excel in their passion for making music. Rimon believes that by exposing its students to a wide range of artistic possibilities and contemporary music genres, they will graduate with the practical skills needed to have a career in today’s growing and dynamic global music market.
Rimon offers a three-year program and offers eight majors: composition and arranging, film scoring, songwriting, jazz performance, general performance, music production and engineering, music education, and an advanced jazz performance track at the Rimon Jazz Institute. The Rimon International Music Program is an opportunity for students from abroad to attend the school for one year and to be a part of the lively educational atmosphere, allowing them to take skills learned back to their home countries or to further their studies at Rimon.
The Rimon campus includes classrooms designed with acoustics in mind, performance areas, and private instrumental study spaces. The technology complex houses three state-of-the-art music technology labs incorporating the latest digital tools and methodologies used in contemporary music production. The school also houses a modern recording facility, a contemporary recital room, and a music library. For more information, contact:
