In this class, we have put together for drum lovers, a program giving everyone a vantage starting point for playing the Hand Drum for both therapeutic means, and music making fun. Drum enthusiasts have the chance to explore and learn the Hand Drum as a tool for meditation, creating improvised rhythms either solo or in a group setting, as well as a medicinal device, connecting oneself to the sacred elements within us and throughout the world in which we live. The Hand Drum is also used as a vibrant, powerful force in music, creativity, improvisation, composition, self and proxy healing and achieving trance. The drum is a tool for creating a journey into the soul, and out into the world.

The Ancient Ones shared with us the rhythms and techniques of this beautiful instrument. So in honor of them, we must carry this rhythmic knowledge forward for generations to come. These are rhythmic ancient remedies for our present and future world.

We cover sacred healing rhythms from the depths of the indigenous world that have been brought into today’s modern drumming used for trance, present day music, Rock beats, jam sessions, drum circles or playing to heal the self or a group. We’ll cover ancient and modern/progressive techniques and flashy tricks used in hand drumming for those drum lovers wanting to step up their rhythm making and take it to the next level. At the conclusion, you’ll be mastering the Hand Drum to compose your own, melodies, Rock beats, Trance rhythms, pop, soul and funk grooves, along with healing the Body, Mind and Soul.

Sample Video from Rhythms of the Rainbow Fire

Rhythms of the Rainbow Fire online package now available! In this program we'll cover tutorials on each Chakra rhythm, allowing you to achieve connection with each one of our energy "sockets". Each video will be accompanied by amazing bowl tracks dedicated to each Chakra. This is a package I truly hope you'll have an interest in getting for yourself, loved ones or class you may be teaching. With each video, you have the liberties of playing along, or relaxing and enjoying the melodic/rhythmic compositions of these powerful healing beats designed to activate each chakra thru the placement of the drum tones.

You'll get a summarized intro video to each rhythm, then the play along version with the background Tibetan singing bowl to accompany the drum journey. Each video will vary in energy and in speed, increasing and decreasing. Take your time and relax and simply listen along, allowing your intentional meditation on each Chakra to become a guided rhythmic experience assisting you in achieving an even deeper connection to self.

If you've ever wanted to drum journey with your Chakras but didn't know where to start, or if you've been taking or teaching classes on the Chakras and how to apply drumming and sound, this is a great package to get you started on that path.

Grab a copy of this online series for a one time purchase and download and you'll have access to these videos anytime, anywhere, for life. I think you'll truly create a stronger connection with this video set.

Great for you or a friend, loved ones or class material.
