Content of the course:

In this workshop, I will demonstrate and teach Iranian classical rhythms and techniques on Tonbak. The techniques I will explain include:

  • the tonbak (goblet drum) finger patterns,
  • snapping,
  • riz rolling (full rolling, two fingers rolling and snap rolling),
  • advanced techniques and sound effects such as muted finger patterns.

    Many of these techniques can be applied to other non-Persian drums such as the West African djembe, Arab/Turkish darbuka, and frame drums.
Language of instruction: English
Level: Medium: Good precognition and a solid experience in tombak playing.
