Creative writing and sound exploration  - A rapping workshop.  Learn how to express yourself through rhymes and beats, the basics of rhythm and phrasing and write and perform a short rap song. Through GarageBand you will be able to produce their own track too!

Gamification of English learning - Ronen has developed a program that uses games for language teaching. This program is fun and engaging and been tested on ESL students as well as high school students. The 'fun and games' aspect of it encourages students to feel less intimidated to speak in a foreign language.

Music live performances - Ronen plays in an electro-acoustic band that engages the crowd with high energy beats.  They combine electro dance music with live instruments playing and can also incorporate Azra the interactive belly dancer, Tribal dancers or an amazing hoola hoop artist to their shows.

Ronen is amazing!! - Highly recommended - email or call on 0421 469 629
