Berklee Summer in the City Rinat Tregerman

Rinat Tregerman is a composer, arranger, and pianist. She was born in Haifa, Israel and raised in West Galilee. She began studying the piano at age six, inspired by her older sister's piano teacher. In her teens, Tregerman was classically trained at several institutes in Israel, among them Acre Conservatory of Music; majored in classical piano at Misgav Music Center; and performed in local concert halls. She was drawn to the world of composition, experimenting with improvisation and arranging contemporary pop, rock, and folk songs in her own style. Soon, she had discovered and started exploring jazz.

After two years of a demanding job in Israeli intelligence, Tregerman began studying jazz performance and graduated from Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music, where she received the prestigious Stu Hacohen Scholarship. Her transition from a small village to an urban area made her active in the music scene, and she started collaborating and performing at well-known concert halls. She is currently a scholarship recipient at Berklee College of Music studying jazz composition and performance.
