Yshai Afterman Percussion

Teaching has become another expression of my art;

I treat it with the same commitment and wholeheartedness as I treat my music.

The evolution of my students is important for me and I feel responsible for each one of them, giving them everything I have.

Inspired by my teachers and by thousands of hours of practice and search, I created a step by step studying method that covers everything a student needs: Technique, musical understanding, rhythmic phrasing, coordination and most importantly - spirit.

If you have a dream to play these instruments and if you are willing to put the work, reach out and lets make it happen.

'Yshai's lessons are irreplaceable. Without exaggerating, they are likely to be the best and most didactically sophisticated in the whole world."
