Energising joyful frame drum rhythm
Drumming is so much fun! There are all kinds of universal drums and rhythms to explore, and the great thing about drumming is you don’t need to be a professional musician to gain the benefits of drumming.
Universal drums that stimulate creativity
I facilitate lots of community drum circles and run rhythm wellness drum circle facilitator trainings for all kinds of populations and have many universal drums in my drum circle kit, from African djembe (vegan) drums, congas, frame drums to dumbeks, buffalo drums and Brazilian bahia surdos, and each drum draws me into playing a certain way. Even though I’m not an expert on the frame drum, it doesn’t stop me from playing and exploring rhythms on this beautiful elegant drum. I’m inspired by the shape, tone and feel of each drum.
Feel inspired by drums, with listening to music that you love from round the world. Set aside some time each week to sit and listen to some healing music from another culture/state/country and notice how it makes you feel. What kind of drums and percussion instruments can you hear in the music? Is there a drum that inspires you to express your feelings and gets you grooving?
Inspiring healing frame drum rhythm in 7 time signature
I remembered when I ventured outside the common time of 4/4 and 6/8 and stepped into the world of odd time…it scared the bejebees out of me. Now I’m here to say, don’t worry, it’s going to be fine…take a deep breath. A simple hand pattern can ease your nerves. Once you’ve mastered this hand pattern you’ll be hanging out to jam with others or play-along to drum music that is in time signature of 7.
Join a drum circle with like-minded people and bring more healing into your life.
