Summer in the CityEyal Gurvich
Eyal Gurvich is studying jazz composition and music production and engineering at Berklee College of Music, where he recently received the Thelonius Monk, Fletcher Henderson, and the Avedis Zildjian awards for outstanding musicianship.
Since he was young, Gurvich has been exposed to art and music by his father, Jorge Gurvich, a major Argentinian filmmaker in Israel. He became passionate about music and the drum set when he was 13, eventually becoming the youngest person accepted to the prestigious Rimon Jazz Institute at age 16.
While at Rimon, he studied performance, composition, and arranging in a college-level environment while completing his formal high school studies. His teachers included world-class musicians such as Avishai Cohen, Gilad Dobrecky, Matan Chapnizky, and Mordy Ferber.
Gurvich has performed at the Hua Hin Jazz Festival in Thailand, the famous JZ clubs in China, the Tel Aviv Jazz Festival, and the Red Sea Jazz Festival. Since arriving at Berklee, he has deepened his compositional skills and dived into the world of production and engineering.
