Groups are Starting on 22.02 & 23.02
From February I am opening two live frame drum groups for the beginners: one in Wedding (Tuesdays, 19:00), one in Neukolln (Wednesdays, 18:00). The classes are open to participants of any level – including those that haven’t studied any instrument before. The only prerequisite is motivation & some time to practice on your own. :) The spots are very limited to keep the optimal distance and learning comfort.
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.
In the meetings we will focus on the following topics/areas:
- modern ‘lap-style’ (sitting) technique for frame drum; optionally: modern ‘upper-style’ technique for frame drum
- traditional grooves
- composing own rhythms and phrases
- compositions in different time signatures
- limb independence exercises
- exercises to develop the sense of rhythm and pulse
