Rhythm Training: body - voice - drum
online lessons (via zoom) with Murat Coşkun
Since more than 10 years Murat Coskun is working with his own method of rhythm training for odd rhythms, where he is combining frame drums, singing, body percussion and dance steps. It aims to establish a natural feeling and a solid timing for odd rhythms (i.a. odd meters in 5/8, 7/8 and 9/8). That will be helpful to play a nice groove and will give a strong foundation for improvising. One further aspect is also to develop the independent playing/ feeling with odd rhythms in different ways: drumming combined with singing, dancing and independent playing on two frame drums. The spectrum ranges from very „simple“ grooves and combinations to more complex forms with groupings and rhythmic overlays.
The grooves, melodies, songs and dance steps are inspired by the deep tradition of Turkish music and combined with Murat´s own choreographies and small compositions (e.g. "This is very difficult") and with rhythmical concepts from South India (tihais like "tadinta" or „talanga“) or North Africa.
In the online lessons, the students will also have the opportunity to listen to many sound examples, watch videos and learn to analyze and count the odd rhythms.
