Hello, I’m Moshe Berk, a world-renowned voice teacher and hoarseness therapist.
It’s nice to meet you!
I started singing when I was 10, in The Cape Town Synagogue in South Africa, and I haven’t stopped singing since…
When I sang in the choir, from the very first time, I knew that this was my destiny in life.
This has evolved into a world-renowned singing career.
After moving to Israel, I continued my musical journey singing in the choir of The Great Synagogue of Jerusalem with famed Cantor Naftali Herstik and Maestro Eli Yaffe.
But I wanted to take this to the next level.
Therefore, I enrolled in The Rubin Academy of Music in 1992.
In 2000 I joined The Tel Aviv Cantorial Institute (TACI), under the guidance of Cantor Naftali Herstik. This evolved and I later became an official teacher at the school.
From this point, my musical career took off to an international level, singing with the most famous names in Jewish music such as: Avraham Fried, Moshe Stern z”l, Yaakov Motzen, Yisrael Rand, Yitzhak Meir Helfgott, Yaakov Shwekey, Baruch Levin and many, many more.
Shortly after arriving in Israel, I was invited to sing at The Israel Festival, with Shlomo Gronich and Yoni Rechter.
Over the last 30 years, I have been lucky enough to sing with The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) and The Israeli Opera Company and performed numerous times under the baton of world-renowned conductors Zubin Mehta, Kurt Mazur, and Antonio Pappano (just to name a few…)
Today I have taken a step back from singing and performing. I learn in Kollel every morning and teach the next generation of Hazzanim & Wedding Singers in the afternoons and evenings. I have also diversified into a speech therapist in order to give my students and all-inclusive experience.
I teach rebbis, bochrim and avraichim how to project and resonate their voice without getting vocally tired or hoarse when learning with their chavrusos or teaching a class.
Through my teaching, I have helped thousands of students resolve their hoarseness and have taken singers from a mediocre level to professional sounding…
Just take a listen to what Mordechai Shapiro has to say…
