Students play in the following ensembles:

The two Young Orchestras are the best in the country; they appear regularly at Ministry of Education events and conferences and their performances have received the highest praise.

Advanced students also play in various chamber ensembles, leading to the formation of world famous ensembles such as the Ariel Quartet and the Jerusalem Quartet.

Most of our students sit the Ministry of Education matriculation exam, which includes a recital and a research paper, and many continue their studies at the Academy.

A significant number of students attain Outstanding Musician status in the IDF; many others win awards from the America Israel Cultural Foundation.

The department has a variety of instruments available to be lent to beginning students.
