Course Content

This three-day-long intensive course will give you a dive into Mindful Drumming, an approach to frame drumming that is all about connecting with the present moment, our body, mind, soul, and instrument through rhythm. Mindful Drumming takes into consideration all aspects of playing an instrument, not only the technical but also the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual. 

Participants can expect to learn basic technical movements, physical warm-ups, and ways to connect with the body and drum while practicing and playing. You will learn how to set an intention and play grooves in different time signatures with more flow, from the heart, not the head. You will be encouraged to find and focus on your strengths as a musician who, in time, will enable you to find your unique voice as a drummer. 

This course can be a step toward playing the frame drum with awareness, ease, and depth. 

Course language:

Level: basic knowledge of the rhythmical language and basic strokes on the frame drum.
