Quotes When Michal and I worked on leadership staff together at Camp Mountain Chai, I looked to her for support, guidance and inspiration. No matter what we were doing she was always an innovative, communicative and actively engaging leader. I learned so much from watching her engage with our campers during educational, musical or spiritual activities. After working over 4 years at Jewish camps, Michal remains one of the most adept songleaders, Judaism, Hebrew and music teachers I have ever encountered. I am so grateful to have met and formed a friendship with Michal. Her kind spirit, generosity and pure enthusiasm are intoxicating. Michal will surely surpass your expectations. Quotes

Quotes I brought my shul's teenagers to Israel this summer. Having studied with Michal in yeshiva, and enjoyed her warmth and spiritual presence, I knew that she was the perfect madricha for our group. Luckily she was available, and I never regretted the choice for one moment. The kids responded well to Michal's ruach and bubbling vivacity and positivity. She combines intense Jewish knowledge with an understanding of what makes people tick. Learning with her is a real joy, being around her a special pleasure. Her musicality is inspirational. From her humour on the early morning tour bus to the late night jamming sessions with her guitar, she enhanced our trip and took it to another level. Half the kids want to go back to Israel just to visit Michal. Quotes

Quotes My husband and I were incredibly lucky to have Michal perform an original song live at our wedding. With only an acoustic guitar and her perfectly pure voice, Michal had every guest, including us, standing in awe at the beauty of her performance. She told the story of our relationship with such thoughtfulness and sincerity. We are so grateful to Michal for capturing our love in such a creative and everlasting way. And we feel just as lucky to have experienced her unwavering positive energy and contagious enthusiasm for life. Michal is truly one-of-a-kind. Quotes

Quotes יצא לי להכיר את מיכל במקרה, כשהגיעה להתרשם מהמרכז למוסיקה בעמק הירדן. מתוך השיחה שהתפתחה, התרשמתי מהתשוקה והאהבה שיש למיכל עם עולם המוסיקה. החלטתי להיפגש איתה לחזרה, לקראת מופע שלי, כדי לבדוק האם נמצא שפה מוסיקלית משותפת. למרות שמיכל לא הכירה את רוב השירים שביצעתי, היא עשתה "עבודת בית" והרשימה אותי ברמת המוסיקליות, הדיוק, הדינמיקה וההבנה של הלחן המתבקש מתוך הטקסט. תוך כדי העבודה הכרתי אישיות מקצועית ורצינית. שותפה מלאה ואכפתית, עם רעיונות ויצירתיות ובעיקר עם הרבה כישרון. אנו מופיעות יחד ונגינתה של מיכל קוצרת מחמאות רבות! מאחלת לך כניסה מוצלחת לאזור הצפון והרבה הצלחה בהמשך!!

Quotes Michal is that rare educator who has it all - talent, knowledge, passion and amazing "people-skills." She was the music director at Kadima Hebrew Academy where I was the Head of School. She was able to motivate children from age 5 through 14. She is an excellent teacher, a great colleague and a fine performer. Quotes

Quotes I had the fortune of studying under Michal Hoffman while spending some time in Jerusalem. She was so patient with me and I looked forward to our lessons every week. Michal's love for music and understanding of its expression really helped me move forward in my relationship with the piano. Now I am in the States and still use her techniques and wisdom to move me along. Her smile combined with her great musical talent make her a rare find in the music field. If you have the opportunity to be one her her students, i highly recommend taking it. Alexandra Kaufman Former student (due to the fact that we are no longer on the same continent) Quotes
