dance, music, body wisdom from egypt

lose and find yourself in rhythm

Caroline's percussion course for the frame drum (daff) not only introduces you to an exquisite traditional Egyptian drum technique, but encourages you to practice as much as you need to improve your sense of rhythm, the feel for your instrument, and your knowledge of Egyptian rhythms. In the videos, there is no talking at all, but from the very beginning you start to beat the drum and do not stop until the workshop ends. This are more than just online classes. The material and videos we have put together will help you to practice and learn intensely in a one-to-one teaching situation. But that's not all: They will enable you to become part of a creative process, as if you are taking part in a ritual or performance. But maybe the best thing about it is the chance to team up with an Egyptian participant. For every online course you buy, we offer one Egyptian participant the chance to have access to the courses as well.
