Weaving Rhythm and Voice
Rhythms in Six
Live Recorded Signature Frame Drum Workshop

Basic Level
( You'll want to know names of strokes, how to play them and play simple patterns when heard recited. )

Join in rhythm and vocal weavings venturing into rhythms of six.

6 reminds us of the geometry of the honeycomb.
Many of the ancient women frame drum images were depictions of the Goddess or priestesses in service to her. They were called Melissa, which means bee in Greek.

We'll dedicate our rhythms and voice to the bees as well as offer up for peace, harmony, unity, healing and remembrance.

These rhythms are both grounding and entrancing when played for an extended time.
Patterns can be played alone or in combination with each other giving you many added possible rhythms.
