Berlin Frame Drum School



spring courses

Join the frame drum community, develop your musicality and indulge in the rhythmic flow! This spring I’m offering a weekly drum circle, intensive weekend course as well as retreat in a nature reserve! Write an email to borys.drums@gmail.com to sign up.

Drums are provided for the first meetings of both courses (starting on 25.03 & 29.03) and for the whole retreat. I offer high quality instruments for purchase and for rent.

Frame Drum Essentials Course

Dates: 25/26.03, 15/16.04 & 13.05

Methods – not exercises! In this 20-hour course you will learn most important techniques of modern frame drumming and get tools to improve on your own. The lessons will be recorded and available to participants.


Weekly frame drum classes for beginners

Every wednesday | Start: 29.03 / 19:00-20:30

Weekly meetings to study the frame drum – an ancient instrument in its modern approach. We will work start off with the very basics and gradually progress – deepening the relationship with the rhythm, developing confidence and ability to play with others, opening minds and bodies to the freedom of improvisation. Previous musical experience doesn’t matter – only passion for drums and time to practice!

individual lessons: live & on-line

I give individual lessons for students of every level - both in-person and on-line. The lessons are adjusted to the needs of student - whether it's professional goals, hobby, meditative practice, self-development or boosting rhythmic skills. There is no such thing as 'lack of the sense of the rhythm' or 'lack of musicality'. Everyone has capabilities to practice music in their daily life.

I teach contemporary techniques for lap-style frame drum (known also as mazhar / mizhar / bendir), upper-style frame drum (in some places known as tar, bendir, tof, daf), riq (also written riqq)
