Introduction to the Frame Drum
A Workshop for Women
The frame drum has been a traditional women's instrument for thousands of years. Used in sacred ceremonies, a frame drum can connect with the divine. It is the perfect instrument to accompany the human voice. Kristina will share with you techniques for playing, rhythms from various musical traditions, and a working knowledge of how to incorporate the power of the drum into your daily life. We will play with the basics of rhythm, and incorporate singing as we use the power of rhythm to quiet the mind and enter into deep meditative experiences.
Whether you want to simply improve your rhythmic skills or develop a meditative practice through drumming this workshop will give you the tools you need to get started.
All women are welcome.
Bring a recording device and a frame drum if you have it. Drums will also be provided.
Women of all musical abilities are welcome.
This workshop can be presented in a number of ways:
-A one day workshop: 10am - 5pm with one hour lunch break.
-2 ½ hour workshops: anywhere from a one time event to a series of six or more.
Of course the longer the workshop the more in-depth we can go and the more material we can cover.
