Frame Drum Seminar 2018/2019

Under the direction of Murat Coşkun, the Tamburi Mundi e.V. offers in 2018/2019 a yearlong frame drum seminar.

Content of the course:

The focus of the lessons is on the practical implementation of different frame drum instruments with an emphasis on: playing technique, rhythms, ensemble, arrangements, compositions, frame drums in different musical contexts (like traditional music, baroque music, jazz etc.), solo play, improvisation, accompaniment of other instruments or dance, enlargement of the sonic performance (sounds, dynamics), extended and innovative playing options, warming up and practical advice, notation and background knowledge to instruments, cultures of origin and their music. Besides this, we will also use our own creativity.

Common play will also be an inherent part of the training. The participants will receive course material as well “homeworks”, in order to prepare the training periods.
