Tamburi Mundi Frame Drum Academy offers, under the direction of Murat Coşkun, an online semester course.

The special feature of the Tamburi Mundi online course is intensive individual support, which enables participants to progress in their personal playing and questions, as well as a well-structured learning programme. Murat Coşkun, who in addition to the Tamburi Mundi frame drum courses also teaches world percussion at the Bundesakademie Trossingen and at the Popakademie Mannheim, has also acquired a great deal of methodological know-how for online teaching.

The participants receive good and sound basic knowledge of playing the frame drum, as well as impulses so that they can develop their own individual playing and find their own way. The focus is on rhythm work and timing.

The lessons take place online (Zoom Meeting) and primarily in groups. Once a month, individual lessons take place in which the other group members can participate as passive spectators. Here, individual questions can be clarified and possible topics of interest can be addressed.

Another focus of the course is regular homework (videos) with personal and individual feedback.
The lessons are recorded via zoom and then made available to the participants for repetition and consolidation of what they have learned.

The language of instruction is English.
