Making shamanic drum workshops, frame drumming workshops and others

Masterclass with Zohar Fresco 12-14 th may 2023, medium/advanced

 Publication: March 01, 2023

I invite you to a frame drum workshop with Zohar Fresco.  Medium/advanced level.

18 hours of masterlass with a virtuoso of frame drums is the first such event in Poland and this part of Europe :) The program of the workshop is focused on improving the skills of playing in the lapstyle and upright positions. Zohar invites you for 3 days to share one space and focus on Tof Miriam - as he calls the frame drum. The workshop will take place in my drum studio, which is located on the Pilica River, surrounded by meadows and forest where you will be able to rest and regenerate :)

Zohar Izhak Fresco is known as a pioneer of the tof miriam, the ancient frame drum originated in the Middle East more than three thousand years ago.

Born in Israel to a family with deep roots in Turkey and as a descendant of Tamburi Izhak Fresco, remarkable, well known Jewish Turkish composer who lived in 18th-19th centuries, Zohar was drawn to music at an early age and revealed a major influence of the music of his origins.

Fresco understood the great value and the wide musical range that exists in the tof miriam and dedicated his life to the development of a new fingering technique and a unique musical language by the name MANEGINA. In doing so Fresco created his own drumming style and became a mentor to musicians all over the world who followed him, learned the secrets of his musical method and adapted his drumming style in their musical work.

Fresco’s deep research, wide experience and dedication to his art made him master of percussion and one of the most sought after music workshops conductors. He is frequently invited to colleges, universities and music centers around the world to teach and share his music theory and playing technique.
