Your Instructor: Herwig Maurer (a.k.a. Agent H)

Herwig Maurer (a.k.a. Agent H) was born and raised in Salzburg, Austria, the stomping grounds of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and is an alumni of Berklee College of Music where he majored in sound production & engineering. Co-founder of the critically acclaimed band, Mankind Liberation Front, he became a playable character in the PlayStation game Rocketbirds (which his band New World Revolution also provided tracks and original score for), and collaborated in the Academy Award-nominated audio design of the film Apocalypto.

Maurer’s work is influenced by over three decades immersed in a wide range of spiritual modalities. These include Western Mystery Schools, Earth-based indigenous religions, Systemic Constellation Work, NLP, and various other delicacies from the spiritual salad bar that Southern California embodies.

Besides his various music projects Herwig is currently continuing sound design on Amazon’s flagship series Reacher, and developing 7 Directions Radio, a label of ceremonial music and media, both geared to benefit indigenous elders and causes.

Our Testimonials

Great class, two really good instructors and nice people in the class. All around good vibes, learned a lot and had the opportunity to play.

My instructor was VERY helpful. It took me a few lessons to grasp the concept and he did not give up on me. He tried many different ways to explain the concept and was always patient and understanding. I felt stupid not knowing how to do what he was explaining, but he was very encouraging and motivating, that I would grasp it and I eventually did!
