Ilana holds forth at the London 'Fidl Kapelye' Workshop

Ilana has introduced hundreds of people of all ages to klezmer ensemble playing and essentials of this traditional Jewish music style through a course at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in the University of London; the Royal Northern College of Music; at workshops around Britain; and at events like the Genius of the Violin Festival. She has also tutored at KlezFest London and at weekends for folk musicians at Witney.
