As a young musician he already conquered the big stages of his home country in various festivals and also performed in Europe. He recorded albums with Progresive Metal band Soul Enema, and Rock band Between Falls.

Knowledgeable and patient. Understands where I'm at and what I need to do next to improve toward my goals. Friendly and breaks down concepts that are difficult for me so I understand them. Applies just the right amount of theory so I'm not overwhelmed yet I'm beginning to understand how everything works together. Very pleased and looking forward to more lessons.

A very polite and patient guy. Yoel can explain without confusing technical terms and yet by the end of the lesson i understood the technical terms. He is more interested in hearing me play than showing me what he can do unlike many other teachers ive seen that will simply show their riffs for an hour.
