The course will focus on the performing techniques and styles of frame drums and percussions of the Mediterranean basin and the Middle East (Italian tambourine, riq, Azeri technique on bodhran). The course is open to students of any level. A limited number of instruments will be available for individual practice; students are therefore advised to bring their own.
