Drum More Vitality Into Your Life!
Did You Know?
Barry Bittman, MD, neurologist and President of the Yamaha Music & Wellness Institute, has shown that group drumming actually increases natural T-cells, which help the body combat cancer as well as other viruses?
Come and anchor the light of rhythm into your heart by learning to play the Frame Drum! Even if you are not a musician, this workshop offers everyone an opportunity to learn an instrument that comes to us from antiquity! It’s easy, fun, and transformative as you learn the different strokes, patterns and techniques of the frame drum. In no time, you will be playing familiar Arabic tunes, along with Mediterranean beats as well as coming up with some patterns of your own!
You Will Be Surprised At How Easy It Is To Play!
Amongst the oldest known musical instruments in the world is the hand held frame drum. Many of the earliest known religions evolved around the ritual beat of the frame drum as it could alter consciousness and create a prophetic trance-like state in which the priestess could foretell the future! The ancient art of drumming can be traced back to the Palaeolithic era as a mystical tool for self-transformation. From Cybele’s Bee priestesses of ancient Rome to the Bee Goddesses of Egypt and the Mediterranean, the frame drum was the sacred tool of the Goddess and over time became a forgotten aspect of a women’s spiritual heritage.
Today, more and more women (and men) are taking up the frame drum for the purpose of feeling a deeper connection not only to themselves, but also to the rhythms of nature, the Sun and the Moon, and to our beautiful Gaia with her sustaining elements of earth, water, fire and air.
Come and discover a brief history of the frame drum and its connection to the great Bee Priestesses throughout the ancient world. (A frame drum is defined by the diameter of a drumhead being much larger than the depth of its shell. The shells range in depth from 2” to 6”, range in diameter from 4″ to 30″ and are held in one hand.

This two-day seminar is meant to stretch your mind by working with your memory. The goal of level one is to help you memorize the planets and their influences, the signs and how they play out, and the playing fields of the houses. This is the foundation of level one.
