Middle Eastern Frame Drumming Workshop

March 26, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

WHAT: Middle Eastern Frame Drumming Workshop
WHEN: Sunday, March 26th, 1:00pm
WHERE: Out Of The Blue Gallery, 541 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA
HOW MUCH: $20 per person
WHO / WHY: Belly dancer Johara has been hosting monthly Middle Eastern drum workshops in the greater Boston area, and she has reached out to Drums For One & All to have Dave Drumhead come and teach a class on playing the Middle Eastern frame drum, often called a “tar”.
This workshop assumes no prior knowledge of hand drumming, so beginners are welcome. Dancers who wish to get a deeper appreciation of the rhythms are also encouraged to participate. If you have a frame drum, bring it along. If not, Dave and Johara will have drums you can borrow.
We’ll spend time on the basic hand technique for both seated and standing methods. Then we’ll use those skills to begin learning how to play common Middle Eastern rhythms that are often closely associated with belly dancing.
To register for the class, please contact Johara by clicking HERE
Frame drums will be provided; RSVP to reserve you spot now. For questions or to reserve a drum, message me at
