Participants / Target group

The contents of our training units in the 3rd year are aimed primarily at musicians who work in the professional and semi-professional field: 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 advanced course (2nd year).
  • A lateral entry is possible after consultation with the instructor (Murat Coskun) and an entrance examination.

Basically, the course requires the willingness to practice and deepen the contents in independent work on a daily basis. In addition, homework will be assigned at intervals of one to two weeks, which should be completed in a timely manner.


At the end of the 10-month postgraduate course there is a final examination. For successful participation, the participants receive a certificate with a detailed list of the training contents. Participants must have been present at least 75% of the time.
