This course is open to frame drummers of all levels who wish to learn popular as well as classical Arabic and Middle Eastern rhythms, such as muwashahat-andalusian odd meters, and how to accompany oud players and ensembles, for example. To create the rhythms covered in the course, the frame drum will be played both sitting and standing. This course will also introduce various fusion frame drum styles, such as Ocean Drum and Brush Work.
The course will encourage you to apply complicated, but above all diverse grooves when accompanying with the frame drum and to include them in your musical repertoire.
