Our History

The seeds for Muzik were first laid when the "DJ School of Contemporary Music", the forerunner to Muzik, was founded in 1997 in response to the growing need in Israel for a school that specializes in music production and music technology, with an emphasis on electronic music, dj’ing, and home studio production.
Each successive year since its founding, the music school in Israel expanded its curriculum in response to the enthusiasm generated by its pioneering courses and by its unique mission.
In 2002 the DJ School launched its “DJ-Producer” track, a one-year program designed for students aspiring to become dj-producers. This program ran alongside part-time courses in home studio production and DJ skills, as well as special music programs for teenagers.
In 2003 the DJ music School in Israel outgrew its original campus near the Tel Aviv port and moved to a new campus in the center of Tel Aviv, equipped with additional classrooms, a recording studio, state of the art equipment, and dj labs. That same year the DJ School began to develop and operate its three-year program for music creation and production.
To reflect its evolution over the years, the DJ music School of Israel changed its name in 2005 to Muzik – School of Creation and Production.
Muzik fully benefits from the groundwork laid by the DJ School – its personnel, pedagogy, logistics, administration, marketing, infrastructure for student promotion, and networks – while continuing to build and expand.
As a result of its long-standing history in the Israeli music scene, Muzik enjoys strong and extensive networks with central players in the music industry and beyond: musicians, producers, sound professionals, communications people, record companies, record labels, agents, managers, publicists, dj’s, nightclubs, music service companies, sound studios, manufacturers/distributors of musical instruments and studio equipment, academic institutions in Israel and abroad, and more.
Muzik lays years of experience and its vast resources at the disposal of its students.
