At the age of three Aryeh undertook classical training on the violin. From an early age, he explored various music styles such as rock, jazz and especially ethnic and international musical genres such as Celtic folk music. At fifteen, Aryeh was introduced to the Celtic harp, which then became the focal point of his musical development. Aryeh taught himself to play a variety of (mostly string) instruments such as mandolin, guitar, cittern, viola and cello. After touring in Sweden, he was introduced to the nyckelharpa (keyed fiddle) which has become a central inspiration for his musical expression.
