ABOUT ME

My name is Dalia Faitelson and I’m a professional musician and trainer in creative communication. Through my career as a professional musician, I’ve been asked many times, why did I choose music as my profession?

My answer has always been that I just can’t help it. It runs in my veins. It always felt like music chose me and not the other way around and I never gave it a second thought.

In the last few years, I have felt a growing need, a kind of hunger, for understanding the essence behind music and what it truly means for me, both on a professional and personal level.

Through my journey into sound, I realized that music is the universal language of emotions and that it carries a far greater potential than just pleasure & entertainment.

I am convinced that creative impulses exist in everyone and that finding our “inner music” will bring out a hidden strength, ready to be discovered.
