Hi there! I’m Erez Kessler your music specialist. 

I’m originally from Dimona, Israel and that is where my family currently resides.

I’ve been teaching music to children here in the U.S. for over 16 years. From 2003 until 2008 I traveled to the U.S. every summer to be a camp counselor/music specialist. In 2008, I met my wife and got married and made the move to the U.S. permanently. I live in Phoenix with my wife of 10 years and our two sons Evan age 6 and Aidan age 4.

In 2009, I started working at Chanen Preschool at Congregation Beth Israel as a ones teacher and music specialist  and continued in this role for the next eight years. After my time at Chanen, I was the full-time music specialist at the Valley of the Sun JCC in Scottsdale and I love what I’ve been able to accomplish while being there.

I’m super excited and looking forward to an amazing summer at the East Valley JCC as a music specialist. My two boys will join me this summer so let the summer begin …
