Talking about my experience in Buchmann-Mehta School of Music, I would like to mention that this school is the most welcoming one you can imagine. The wonderful practice facilities alongside with the generous financial aid the students receive are extremely important for us, musicians, especially nowadays. From my personal experience, the members of the staff and faculty at the school are real professionals of their job, warm-hearted , they always take care of their students and help them in any possible matter they are able to. Studying in Tel Aviv also gives me unstoppable charge of energy as this specific city is definitely unique. I am proud to be the student of the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music at the Tel Aviv University and it gives me a great pleasure to spend my undergraduate degree specifically here.

Panagiotis Giochalas, Greece
When I was not in class, I explored the miraculous city of Tel Aviv and basked in the sun on Tel Aviv's world-famous beaches.
