Ronen Itzik

Born in Jerusalem, Israel, in 1976, Ronen was fortunate to grow up in an environment that fostered his dreams of becoming a musician. He was raised in a music-loving family; both his parents and his older brother were music enthusiasts who enjoyed a large variety of music. Music was therefore a part of every day life, and Ronen’s up-bringing gave him many opportunities to cultivate his love for the art form. At the age of six, Ronen took keyboard lessons for a year. This served as a great introduction to instrumental music and, later, helped him realize his interest in playing music professionally

Augmented Reality: Augmented Reality

Read "Augmented Reality" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
