The upcoming basic course (ONLINE) will start 3rd of January 2021.
Informatory meeting (via zoom): 1st of November 2020, 5 pm CET

Since January 2018 the Tamburi Mundi Frame Drum Academy under the direction of Murat Coşkun offers a frame drum course of several years in Freiburg (Breisgau). The goal is a comprehensive education on the frame drum with different emphases in the individual years of study.

During the time of the pandemic restrictions, Tamburi Mundi constantly extended its on-line course offer. Now we will approach new ways, also within the range frame drum training courses. Since there are again and again inquiries also from other countries and frame drum interested people for which the regular journeys to Freiburg are not feasible, there will be in 2021 for the first time also an ON-LINE frame drum training course.

Instead of the intensive attendance weekends, we work in three blocks (trimesters), each of which is concluded with a small exam. Within a trimester course, group lessons, individual lessons and practice and consolidation phases will alternate.

The flexibility of the online format makes it possible to attend even single trimester courses, pause between blocks if necessary and re-enter at a later date.

Murat Coşkun, next to the Tamburi Mundi courses, also teaches frame drum courses at the Bundesakademie Trossingen and world percussion at the Popakademie Mannheim. So he acquired a large methodical know-how for on-line instruction.

Lecturer: Murat Coşkun

Information on the basic course

In the basic studies the participants receive good and well-founded basic knowledge in playing the frame drum, as well as impulses to develop an individual playing style and find their own way. The focus in the first year is on rhythm work and "timing".

Lessons are held online (Zoom Meeting) and primarily in groups. Once in a month, individual lessons take place in which the remaining group members can participate as passive spectators.
