Sound School

Before we make music, music makes us.

– Joachim-Ernst Berendt


This second 6-day intensive module expands upon concepts and techniques learned in the previous module and encourages a further understanding of both the theory and practice of the sound meditation experience,  as it is viewed from a multi-disciplinary lens.

The program is hosted by WOOM co-founders, Elian and David Zach-Shemesh, and supported by ethnomusicologist, sound researcher, and renowned sound practitioner Alexandre Tannous. Along with a team of experts in the field, this intimate module will  focus on personal guidance, techniques and approaches toward select overtone-rich instruments, as well as provide a scientific and academic body of knowledge.

This module is available only to module I graduates and to sound practitioners with two or more years of experience.
