What kind of training can I expect at the Apprenticeship?

Drum-set Study:

Amir’s work will center around three fundamental and style-less aspects of drum-set playing ― technique, coordination, and polyrhythms ― enabling drummers of any style to attain a deeper command of their instrument.

Percussion Ensemble:

Open your imagination to the vast possibilities of percussion music. Work  together with Amir on original compositions and orchestrations traditional and non-traditional instrumentations, then rehearse with the ensemble and record your work on our state of the art mobile recording studio. All recorded compositions will be considered for our future releases!



Living on the land

Camping, fire-building, and collective cooking; spear throwing, traditional archery, and a glimpse into the hunter’s mind-set. All these will transport apprentices to the primordial core from which all art-forms emerge, to times and places where essential creative skills served as the crucial tools for human survival. We believe that by touching the source, you will achieve a more profound mastery of your art today.
