"Ari has a very good understanding of the concepts we've covered. He can keep a steady beat, clap the rhythm of the words and has a beautiful singing voice. Ari always participates and has lots of enthusiasm for music. It is a real pleasure to have him in class!"
- my kindergarten music teacher, 1990.
Ari has been an active member of the professional music world since graduating high school in 2003. Before that, he was messing around in pop-punk bands. Proficient in an array of bass and guitar styles, Ari is an experienced and accommodating instructor and hopes to bring the enthusiasm he showed as a kindergartener to students of all ages.
Recent credits include national and European tours with Ben Kenney (Incubus, The Roots), LPs by Heavy English (ex-Envy on the Coast), The Narrative, Emily Peal, The Vantage and more.
