“Drumming tunes our biology orchestrates our immunity, and enables healing to begin”
– Dr Bittman
From Shamans to High Priestesses, Drumming has been used as a prominent tool for healing for thousands of years.
Drumming is emerging as a significant therapeutic tool for healers, yogis and therapists
The drum is one of the most widespread and commonly seen instruments found in almost every culture. The frame drum (my favorite drum) is known to be one of the world’s most ancient and mystical drums, with archetypical and spiritual connections that predate written history.
In this wonderful online E-Video program, you will learn how to use drumming and chanting as a practice for healing and wellness.
Experience the rich, empowering ancient healing medicine of drumming and chanting.

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!
