Participants/target group

The content of our training units in the second year is aimed primarily at musicians who work in the professional and semi-professional sector: Drummers, percussionists, rhythmists and other musicians who already integrate percussion into their work and want to deepen and expand their knowledge of frame drums.


  • Successful completion of the basic course (1st year).

A lateral entry is possible after consultation with the teacher (Murat Coskun) and an entrance examination.

The following previous knowledge should be available:

  • Good basic knowledge of at least 3 different frame drums, e.g. lap style, upright position, freehand style, shell tambourine (riqq or tamburello).
  • Sufficient coordination and flexibility


Basically, the course requires the willingness to practise and deepen the contents in independent work on a daily basis. Homework is also assigned at one to two-week intervals and should be completed promptly.


At the end of the advanced course there is a final examination. For successful participation, participants receive a certificate with a detailed list of the training contents. Participants must be present at least 75% of the time.


Frame drum advanced course: 1200,- EUR // 1080,- EUR (reduced)

The course fees can also be paid in three instalments if desired. Accommodation and board costs are not included.
