PhD in Music (Macquarie University), Bachelor of Arts, Honours in Ethnomusicology (Palermo University)
I provide introductory to intermediate level instruction in playing Southern Italian frame drums, tamburello and tammorra, in the styles played in Sicily, Calabria, Campania and Puglia.
Instruction will first be without music, once the student has gained confidence with the basic steps, playing to music will be introduced. There is the possibility of playing drums with live Southern Italian folk musicians – once a certain level of proficiency is achieved. There also would be the possibility of learning folk dance from Puglia once the basic techniques of playing tambourine in the Puglia style is mastered.
