Dr. Cyrus Beroukhim joined the faculty of NYU as Music Associate Professor of String Studies in 2013.
He was appointed as concertmaster of the American Symphony Orchestra in 2019 and has appeared as guest concertmaster with the American Ballet Theatre, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and Gotham Chamber Opera.

His performances of Bach and Vivaldi Concerti with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields were heralded as “flawless and sensitive” by the Zeitung im Espace Mittelland (Switzerland) and his live recording of Saint-Saëns Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso earned him the distinction of “crème de la crème” on National Public Radio’s Performance Today. As a founding member of the Zukofsky Quartet, he presented the Milton Babbitt Quartet Cycle numerous times around the country.
Dr. Beroukhim pursued his undergraduate degree at the Oberlin Conservatory and went on to receive his master and doctorate degrees from The Juilliard School, where he studied with Cho-Liang Lin. He joined the faculty of SUNY Fredonia in 2010 and has taught extensively at Columbia University. Helping to develop an accelerated method for overcoming habits, Dr. Beroukhim has worked with countless instrumentalists in music festivals worldwide, tackling and eliminating the most daunting of technical problems.
