The Rimon School is respected for its academic excellence and wide range of opportunities for artistic expression. Rimon's reputation for creative expression and community building also attracts a roster of visiting artists and industry professionals.

The school was established in 1985, by a group of Berklee graduate Israeli musicians with the intention of making modern music more prominent in Israel.


Rimon's curriculum develops musicianship and social influence through a variety of studies, experiences, and real-world projects. Students may choose to study in Conducting/Arranging/Composition, Performance, Songwriting, Contemporary Music Production, Electronic Music Production, Music Education, The Rimon Jazz Institute, and The First Year in English Program (for international students).

In 1992, Rimon formed an articulation and credit transfer agreement with the Berklee College of Music. Many students who attend Rimon elect to continue their studies to earn a bachelor's or a master's degree internationally.

The school is also partnered with Berklee Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship (BerkleeICE) to create an ongoing incubator and professional development series centered around music technology and innovation. The school also welcomes students from all over the world to study for one year at Rimon, in a full curriculum of music courses taught in the English language.
