Andrea Piccioni (Italy)

Instruments:  Frame Drum


The Andrea’s frame drum methodology it’s aimed to develop a deep relationship with the instrument allowing the player the freedom to move within any kind of rhythmic cycle and musical environment, resulting into some kind of “fusion” between the player and his instrument. This methodology pays special attention to the development of soloing skills, with the purpose of creating a symbiosis between mind and body that allows the player to harmonically flow throughout the almost neverending possibilities given by the instruments, thus greatly broadening their timbral and soloing possibilities. We’ll work on warm-up and technique-development exercises through the focusing on movements and joints stretching, thus diminishing in a significative way all the tensions deriving from practice and execution, so to avoid the possibility of suffering from tendinitis or other diseases related to an improper use of joints and tendons. At the same time we’ll apply the same exercises to the drums, thus creating a boundary between training and live performance, crystallizing the most appropriate movements into body memory, slowly eliminating the unneccessary habits in a harmonic, flowing way, without unuseful stressing factors. The method focuses on several goals, which are:

  • the balance and the posture of the body, working on the relationship between body and mind 
  • the development of the vocalization and rhythmical concept system specifically conceived for the instrument
  • a spatial conception of the drum and its performance-related movements
  • the elimination of any kind of tension during both the training and performance session
  • the fusion between vocalization and fingering
