Monday began with an initial meeting with the Rimon administration and faculty. We reviewed our longstanding partnership and addressed issues around curriculum transfer and student recruitment. There is apparently a surge of interest in Rimon’s songwriting program with 150 students currently enrolled. The program is taught by some of the best known songwriters in Israel and some of the graduates of this program have already gone on to successful careers. We held an information session in the afternoon, reviewing the application process and answering questions regarding the audition and interview.
