“Nobody told Tali what could and could not be done with a recorder” (Roger H. Brown, President of Berklee College of Music)

 Tali Rubinstein is a NYC based recorder player, singer and composer (for Latin Grammy Award winning album) from Israel. Originating in classical music and delving into jazz, pop and R&B music, Tali has been exploring and challenging the boundaries of this ancient baroque instrument, creating her own unique voice in today's music scene.

Just like most kids, Tali began playing the recorder in 2nd grade. Unlike most, she never stopped. A student of Bracha Kol, who quickly spotted her passion and talent for the instrument, Tali has been professionally trained in classical music. She studied in prestigious music institutions in Israel (Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts, Rimon School, The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music) and received scholarships and prizes (America-Israel Cultural Foundation Scholarships 1994-2006, 2nd prize at the International Recorder Festival Contest in Utrecht, Gilad Shein Memorial Scholarship). Driven by an attraction and curiosity for Jazz and contemporary music, Tali decided to audition for Berklee College of Music, Boston. She received a full tuition scholarship, and became the first recorder player ever to study at Berklee. Tali was later chosen to represent Berklee at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington D.C.​, and upon graduation, received the W.S. Kenney award for outstanding achievement.
