Frame Drums of Cybele

 
 

Welcome to West Michigan’s source for frame drum resources and training.


Join the procession of women and men through the ages who created ceremonies with the frame drum.


Learn in an environment of community as we discover frame-drumming techniques on the North African style Tar, and Mediterranean Style Tambourine from many cultures and traditions.


Expand your awareness of the rhythm of life as you play the world’s oldest drum used for thousands of years as the primary tool for celebration and  spiritual practice.


World music percussionists Barb Pitcher and Amy Oak offer premier instruction on a fusion of world drum methods and techniques developed by  Glen Velez , and teacher/author/mentor  Layne Redmond  for the beginner to advanced drummer. Available throughout the Midwest region, for booking information contact Barb@framedrumsofcybele.com
