Berlin frame drum school
FRAME DRUM SCHOOL
in berlin & around / online & in-person / group & private lessons / jams & more
Hi! I’m Borys – musician, educator, and psychologist from Poland, based in Berlin.
I offer private and group classes in modern frame drums for all levels – regardless of your musical experience.
I provide my students with exercises and compositions to expand their understanding of rhythm and develop their playing skills. We work with traditional grooves and their countless variations, become friends with odd time signatures, practice limb independence, make first (and further) steps in improvisation, learn to compose our own rhythms and phrases… All in a very systematic approach, adjusted to the pace of each student. In the whole process, we will pay attention to the body: posture, responsiveness, relaxation, breath – as it plays a substantial role in any musical activity.
Music is an innate human need. I encourage my students to give it a voice!

Drumming in nature! We have two workshop-retreats coming: one for beginners and one for intermediate students. Both in beautiful villages in Poland, accessible by trains from Berlin. Both with delicious food, morning ashtanga yoga (regardless of your prior experience and ofc… voluntary!) with excellent teachers, and soothing evening relaxation sessions.

In mid October I’m planning to open a new frame drum group for beginners! We’ll study modern techniques for frame drum, develop rhythmic skills, work on limb independence and foremost: play together! All step-by-step, in an accessible, systematic approach. We will also pay attention to the body: posture, responsiveness, relaxation, breath – as it plays a substantial role in any musical activity.
