Moshe Hammer


World-renowned violinist and teacher Moshe Hammer is admired for his artistic style, unique interpretations, and vibrant tone. Born in the ruins of Budapest, Hungary after World War II, Moshe and his family travelled to the new country of Israel as refugees. There, as Israel was struggling to build itself in a troubled region of the world, young Moshe established himself as an award-winning violinist. He has studied with Ilona Feher at the University of Tel-Aviv’s Rubin Academy of Music and the Julliard School in New York. He was privileged to take part in special classes with Jascha Heifetz in Los Angeles and Yehudi Menuhin in London. In 2007, Moshe founded The Hammer Band – From Violence to Violins, which brings music instruction for children in at-risk neighbourhoods in Toronto and beyond.
