NVAK at TUMO: Armenia Teaching News and Pictures

So, this past July I taught for NVAK's inaugural program in Armenia! Ben Moody (of Evanescence), Tamar Kaprelian (of Eurovision's Geneaology), and myself spent two weeks at the state-of-the-art TUMO facility teaching pop performance, production, and songwriting. 

I don't speak Armenian or know much about Armenian news media, so apologies in advance for the vague descriptions of these sources.

The talent in Armenia was pretty unbelievable, and I'm so excited to share the finished products once I get them. In the meanwhile, I will say this - the city of Yerevan is one of the safest, coolest places I've ever been, and the food is out of this world. And the taxis don't have seatbelt buckles, so, uh, hold tight.
