    5 INCREDIBLE BENEFITS OF DRUMMING - WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT?
    DRUMMING CONTROLS STRESS AND ANXIETY- Stanford University School of Medicine conducted a study and found that participants in a weekly music therapy group were less anxious; less distressed; and had higher self-esteem. (Friedman, Healing Power of the Drum, 1994).

    DRUMMING IS A NATURAL PAIN KILLER - Research suggests that drumming serves as a distraction from pain and grief. Specifically, drumming promotes the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates, the body's own morphine-like pain killers, and can thereby help to control pain.

    DRUMMING MAKES YOU SMARTER - Drumming is a great workout for your brain and can actually make you smarter. Research shows that the physical transmission of rhythmic energy to the brain actually synchronizes the left and right hemispheres. Why? When the logical left hemisphere and the intuitive right hemisphere of your brain begin to pulsate together, your inner guidance system ñ or intuition and becomes stronger *

    DRUMMING PUTS YOU IN THE NOW - While drumming, you are moving your awareness toward the flow of life. When you are flowing with the rhythm of life, you cannot be caught up in your past or worrying about your future.*

    DRUMMING CONNECTS YOU TO A HIGHER POWER - Shamans often use drumming as a means to integrate mind, body and spirit. They focus on the whole body and then integrate the healing at both the physical and spiritual level by drumming, which connects spiritual forces.*

Hello, I'm Marla… a Grammy-nominated musician and one of the few female frame drum specialists in the world today.

Having studied music since I was three years old, music is my first love and greatest passion! I hold a BFA & MFA in Percussion and have been fortunate to study with some of the most world-renowned, inspiring teachers and leading masters in frame drum, Indian and West African drumming.

Delighted to pass on what I’ve learned, I’ve now been teaching for over 25 years. I have seen, first-hand, the amazing power of music to help heal and bring joy. Over 15 years ago, I first started helping students online, when that kind of learning was a strange new world.

The Frame Drum Academy online is my dream child. Born in 2015, we currently have hundreds of happy students and are growing by the day! Welcome to the family... we cannot wait to walk beside you on your special drum journey...

DEEP Gratitude to my teachers, without my excellent teachers, I would not be where I am today!

My drum training includes:
  • Education:
    Bachelor of Fine Art in Music (BFA) & Master of Fine Art (MFA) in Percussion from California Institute of the Arts
    Ali Akbar College

  • Percussion teachers:
    John Bergamo, Glen Velez, Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri, Poovlar Srinivasaan, Alfred Ladzekpo, Kobla Ladzekpo, Randy Gloss and Layne Redmond.
