Brief Course Description.
Frame Drums 201: Lap Style Edition is a continuation of the highly popular and acclaimed course Frame Drums 101, taught in the Glen Velez style by world-renowned performer and teacher Yousif Sheronick.  Frame Drums 201 is a step-by-step process with a curriculum including Accelerated Split Hand Technique, South Italian Triplet, Ratio Exercises, Improvisation Techniques, Playing with a Brush, Split Hand Triplet, Call and Response, Snapping and more!

What is included in the course?
The course focuses entirely on Lap Style playing with over 6 hours of instructional video and 20 PDF worksheets which contain all of the exercises and grooves from the course.  There is no hand held playing in this course. 


Is there a pre-requisite?
Yousif highly recommends taking Frame Drums 101 prior to this course as he references many techniques and musical practices from that course.

What material can I view and when?
Upon enrollment you have instant access to ALL 6 hours of videos and PDFs.  You can watch whatever you like, whenever you like.  Keep to Yousif's step-by-step curriculum or jump around the course videos as you wish.  

How does the monthly payment plan work?
With the monthly plan you are paying for one month (30 or 31 days) of access to the entire course.  You can start anytime.  Monthly subscriptions rebill on the anniversary of your start date.  For instance, if you enroll on April 15th you will have access through May 14th. You are free to watch all the videos and download the PDF worksheets anytime during that month.  The subscription renews after one month unless you cancel.  Once you cancel you can still view the videos until that current month of access has ended.  The downloaded PDF worksheets you can keep forever.  

Why study with Yousif Sheronick?  
Excellent question!  Yousif’s master plan is to make you a well-rounded musician.  You won’t simply be given a series of strokes that make up a groove.  You will learn to play musically, to be able to pull “melodies” out of those grooves, to have solid internal rhythm and a greater ability to play in odd time signatures.  Yousif moves your thought process away from the analytical side of the brain and to the creative, stripping away numbers (math!) and replacing them with South Indian vocal cycles.  Using ratio exercises will transform your perception of time and get you to feel at ease with odd time signatures.  You will learn base patterns first before filling up those grooves with embellishments.  This will bring out the melodies in those grooves and transform you from a drummer into a musician!  

Is there a solo I can play after completing the course?  
Yes!  After this course is completed you will have all the skills needed to perform Yousif's through-composed  solo titled “Doubtful Sound".   Better yet, Frame Drums 201 includes many Improvisation Exercises which will help you develop and compose your own solo.  

Drum Suggestions:
Looking to purchase a drum? I highly recommend the Cooperman Glen Velez series Frame Drums.  They are lighter in weight and have a deep shell which makes both Hand Held and Lap Style playing much more comfortable.  A 15" Tar is a good all around drum to start with.  The 20" Bodhran is brilliant for Lap Style playing.  You can purchase drums directly from our duoJalal linked store.
