I am a frame drummer within the Southern Italian tradition, playing tambourines of different sizes, known as tamburello and tammorra. I offer introductory classes on these frame drums. Classes can either be arranged at my place, or in nearby park (wheather permitting) or at the residence of the students.
I can provide instruction on the drum playing itself, on its history, on the music it generally accompanies and a complete cultural and historical course on the instrument. I have a PhD in Ethnomusicology specializing on Southern Italian folk music and am able to deliver specialized courses and classes on music from these regions of Italy.
