Paolo Rossetti Murittu (Italy)

Instruments: Tamburello, Tammorra and other Frame Drums

This course with Paolo Rossetti is a journey into the world of Italian frame drums, in traditional, classic, and ancient repertoires of Medieval music.

In the first part of the course, the basic techniques of traditional Italian music will be introduced and applied on Italian folk songs. There will also be an excursion into the matter of  Italian percussions setup and classical arrangements.

In the second part of the course, the preliminarily practiced Italian rhythms and beats now will be applied on orchestra playing with other different  frame drums, to be transfered into new beats and modern pieces.

Based on the focus of the first part, the topics will be as follows:

  • Tamburello: saltarello, pizzica, tarantella
  • the modern way of playing the tammorra  (Neapolitan folk): playing techniques on the tammorra and a short introduction into the huge repertoire of the region around the Vesuvius.

The topic, "new beats, arrangement for tamburello virtuoso“ will be treated in the following way:

  • Tamburello: la tarantella moderna, modern playing techniques of the tamburello virtuoso and use in setup of modern percussions. 
  • modern beating techniques for arrangements in orchestras of tamburello, tammorra and castanets.
  • Italian rhythms and arrangements for a frame drum orchestra.
Language of instruction:


Level: Basic/Medium = little (Basic) or good (Medium) experience in frame drum playing or with musical and rhythmical precognition on other instruments.
The lecturer will teach the group in a differentiated way responding to both of the levels.
