Wherever you live in the world, we are in a time of reflection. There is so much loss and stress, it is easy to focus on those things. But there is also hope, kindness, community and gratitude for all that we do have.
This is the time to heal, to boost your immune system and to make positive changes to your wellbeing.
💛 There is an abundant natural medicine to be found in playing long time cycles.
These cycles have the ability to put us into a Shamanic-inspired ‘drum trance’ ~ a therapeutic, peaceful state of consciousness - which is MUCH needed right now.
And I'd love to share this magic with you in my special workshop!
(No experience or drum needed ~ see below)
Come be inspired by new techniques, rhythms and songs, and connect with an AMAZING global family of like-minded, beautifully-spirited frame drummers.
💛 PLAY FRAME DRUM, RHYTHMS & IMPROVISATIONS
💛 CHANT, PRACTICE VOCAL TONING & LEARN ABOUT MUSIC THEORY

Give yourself (and loved ones) the gift of drumming and chanting!
Healing for the body, mind, and soul!
See you in class, 💝

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!
