Some Benefits of Drumming...


*images above also from Layne's book.

History shows us that the frame drum started as a women's drumming tradition in ancient cultures worldwide.

The frame drum was the primary tool of transformation that Shamans and High Priestesses of the ancient world used to access altered states of consciousness, to facilitate rituals and sacred rites of passages.

In today's society, both men and women commonly play the frame drum. It is a great accompaniment for chanting, belly dancing, drum circles, personal healing, sound therapy AND it is commonly used in folk, world & rock music. It is medicine for your body, mind and spirit, AND it is simply ALOT OF FUN!

"Rhythm is a means of organizing sound into formulas to harmonize the mind and body"
- Layne Redmond, "When the Drummers Were Women"

MORE ABOUT OUR BUNDLE PACAKGE...

This is a FABULOUS Package for students who desire to immerse themselves in the ✨ART OF FRAME DRUMMING✨ while enjoying INCREDIBLE savings!
(save an additional $149) ❤️

Our Frame Drum Academy 101 & 202 programs are carefully created, where each lesson builds upon the previous.

Therefore, it is HIGHLY recommended that if you chose our BUNDLE PACKAGE that you COMPLETE the Frame Drum 101 program FIRST - before doing Frame Drum 202.

🌹WHY?

In signing up for the Bundle Package, you will be receiving videos for BOTH Programs at the same time, (this totals almost 600 instructional videos, that does not include any of the SEVEN Bonus Trainings!)

Each video builds upon the next, and therefore, it is HIGHLY encouraged to NOT do both programs at the same time, or you can easily get overwhelmed ~ in a drum haze ~ and in technique overwhelm, and we do not want that!


★Here is my Suggested Way to Learn with Our Special Bundle Package

  • 🌹Practice/Enjoy the videos for Frame Drum 101 this year!
  • 🌹Practice/Enjoy the videos for Frame Drum 202 the following year!
  • 🌹Currently, I will be offering Frame Drum Academy at least one time a year.
    (next enrollment date: tentative Feb/March 2020)

    :::

    - Our Academy Programs are designed as a self-study courses!

    - After you complete Frame Drum 101, you may enjoy Frame Drum 202 on your own (as you will already have access to the Frame Drum 202 videos), OR follow along with the group when the Academy opens again.

    - After you complete Frame Drum 101, if you choose to follow along with Frame Drum 202 group in the following year, please check our website for our upcoming enrollment dates, and email me to let me know you would like to be enrolled in that year's program.
    Thank you!

“Marla is an incredible teacher with a brilliant way of breaking down the material to make it accessible. Her enthusiasm and generosity of spirit set her apart and help her students want to learn and practice and keep improving. She believes in her students so much that we start to believe in ourselves. She does not simply teach the art of frame drumming...she teaches the art of life!”

~ Meaghan Beishline

“Marla has created a wonderful curriculum that is easy for a beginner to follow and graduate with solid basic and advanced skills to grow with. I was so impressed with her eastern teaching methods and inclusion of skills like solkattu, compositions with accompaniment, chant, and ankle bell work. Marla is a fantastic teacher. I feel the courses are well worth the investment for anyone interested in frame drum! I took both 101 and 202 and feel confident to improvise, teach, and play with others.”

~ Susan Freeman

“The course concept is exceptional: brilliant videos of sequential learning techniques for frame drum basics, rhythms, and flourishes that I can watch again and again to perfect my skills. It doesn’t get better than this."

~ Norma Kaplis

FRAME DRUM SIZE RECOMMENDATION & COOPERMAN SPONSORSHIP -10% DISCOUNT

If you were to suggest only ONE drum for this program, I recommend a 16" drum - It is the perfect size for playing in the 3 playing styles. Highly recommended (but not necessary) for the passionate drum student!

Other sizes will be fine for the program, but your hands may hurt if you're playing a bigger drum in the upright style (20"-22".)

Here are My Suggested Frame Drum Sizes:

  • 16" Drums - All three styles! (Lap,Upright & Free Hand).

  • 14"-16" Drums - Upright Style.

  • 16"-22" Drums - Lap and Free Hand Styles.

  • Cooperman Drums is our sponsor. Of course, its not essential you play a Cooperman drum for the program, but they are truly amazing! Each Drum is custom made by hand & the drums last a liftime. All students recieve a 10% discount on a Cooperman drum (discount code given when you sign up).

    Marla is an endorsed artist with Cooperman and has collaborated with them to create an Artist Innovative Series drum called The Marla Tar.

    You can visit Marla's suggested drums for this program here.

    Other brands of frame drums are fine to use. REMO sells good beginner 16" drums that you can purchase on Amazon.
