NVAK @ TUMO in Yerevan This Summer - Applications Open!

NVAK at TUMO (which was the subject of an Al Jazeera documentary on innovative education throughout the world) is now accepting applications for its 2017 summer program in songwriting, vocal performance, and music production. In addition to myself and NVAK founder Tamar Kaprelian, this year's staff will also include Cobra Starship's Gabe Saporta, international producer DerHova, and some guy named Xandy Barry, whose writing and producing credits include tracks by such up-and-comers as Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, and Maroon 5. 

The program accepts applicants aged 12-22. Housing and Board for international students is provided by Camp TUMO. The program offers a chance to study with an international faculty of some serious heavy-hitters in an incredibly friendly, culturally rich city (Yerevan, the capital of Armenia). 

A few tidbits: United States citizens do not need a Visa to travel to Armenia, which has lower crime than the States (and lower prices! I had a personal trainer there for $12/hr!). And the whole program will be conducted in English, which is pretty widely spoken in Yerevan.
