Linda Marie has been playing & teaching the Tar Frame Drum for 6 years. She combines studies from her teachers, Layne Redmond, Glen Valez, Inanna, and River Gueguerian to create a well-rounded program that will easily have you playing and loving this drum. Other drum classes will be scheduled soon!

Frame drums were played chiefly by women in the ancient Middle East, Greece and Rome and reached medieval Europe through Islamic culture. It is one of the earliest drums you can find in images or text sources. As women discover their history, and the importance they once held in Matriarchal times, the frame drum has seen a resurgence in popularity. I will be teaching the Tar, which is an Arabic drum commonly played in the Middle East and North Africa. All cultures have a frame drum, which has a drumhead wider than its’ depth. From the bodhran in Ireland to a Native American drum to a Daf in Iran to a Tamburello in Italy, these are all considered frame drums
