Leerone

Violin, Co-founder

Israeli-American violinist, Leerone, embarked on a campaign of begging to take violin lessons at age two. It took three years, but by age five, she stood proudly with her 1/8th sized violin that could barely make a sound. This proved to be the right decision, as the violin took her to 3 different continents, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, and Juilliard.

Leerone has a wide range of educational experience, ranging from giving master classes, to local group classes and private lessons.
