Dynasty of Azerbaijani musicians in Israel
A student of Rena Hajieva, the Baku Academy of Music alum who lives in Israel, won the international online contest for children and teenagers “SOZVEZDIE — EUROPA — ASIA 2021.” A young violinist Emily Averbakh beat 400 contestants of 12-15 years old.
Rena Hajieva started to teach Emily when she was a preschooler. The teacher thinks that a child’s success depends on joint efforts and mutual support of a teacher, parents, and a student. A child’s talent is one of major factors while a serious attitude to education if handled properly helps to develop the talent. Hajieva uses her long-lasting educational experience to make her students not only reach high musical technique but also love music, feel it and give people joy with their playing.
Before she came to Israel, Rena Hajieva worked in the Azerbaijan State Symphony Orchestra under management of Rauf Abdullayev.
After service in Israel Defense Forces, Rena’s daughter Miriam Hajieva graduated from Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (singing class). Miriam continues her education in Vienna. Rena’s son Amir Hajiev graduated with honors from the conservatory as a violinist. He got the highest grade on the final exam.
Rena, Miriam, and Amir Hajievs not once performed at concerts organized by AzIs International Association in Israel and Azerbaijan.
