She has been teaching the craft since 1999, as encouraged by her late teacher Layne Redmond, author of the seminal book,  When the Drummers Were Women.

 Miranda has created and teaches a repertoire of frame drum "circle songs" as a way of sacred remembrance. Her songs honor and celebrate nature, the elementals, the sun, moon and womb.
She also has songs to uplift or bring about connection.

She performs in a ceremonial context, playing for rites of passage and communal bonding. She also sings in an intuitive language of her own.

The " Stepping into Rhythm
and "Heart of Frame Drumming" courses are really helping me understand more deeply the drumming practices I have been learning from other drum teachers.
I find your teaching style fun, refreshing and detailed. I love the tempo of learning and how you build the practice of the stepping, hands voice and melody to allow integration into the body memory and also how you bring in the new information to build on the foundation.
My voice is very shy but it is very slowly and gradually coming out to play. I am really enjoying learning from you. Exciting journey. Thank you so much.

What is the best way to take the course?
I suggest taking each workshop without stopping the video one week apart with practice in between for best results and progress. Progress is based on body memory so you don't want more than a week to pass by.
Normally this course is taken in a 3 hour in person session and the body memory is strengthened to have repetition within the same session in short period of time.
Once you've done all three workshops you can then review at your own pace.

What kind of drum do I need?
You will want a frame drum that has a thumb notch or thumb hole. This will help you to be able to reach the drum head with your holding hand to play.

I recommend 16" remo fiberskyn frame drums to start off.
You can learn more about the differences in frame drums here.
