About Frame Drum School

With over 800 students in 61 countries, FrameDrumSchool.org is an online learning platform dedicated to the amazing world of frame drums.  Our goal is to not only make you a more proficient frame drummer but to also make you a more well rounded musician.

Instructor Yousif Sheronick is world renowned as both a player and educator.  His frame drum pedagogy has a direct link to master frame drummer and father of the modern frame drum movement Glen Velez, whom Yousif has worked with for over 25 years.  Yousif’s teaching method combines his many influences playing World Music, Classical, Jazz, Rock, Early Music, among others.   

Yousif has performed around the globe with Glen Velez, Philip Glass, Yo Yo Ma, Ethos Percussion Group, duoJalal, Laurie Anderson, Branford Marsalis, Sonny Fortune, Cindy Blackman Santana and Paul Winter.  His workshops have been presented at prestigious universities in North and South America, Asia and Australia.

Instruction is currently available for Lap Style and Hand Held playing of the Tar and Bodhran as well as the Riq (Middle Eastern Tambourine).    

Frame Drums 101 is a one of a kind course which starts with how to hold the instrument and play basic tones, and concludes with the student playing a composed solo on a recital or concert.   

Feel free to email Yousif with any questions.  We look forward to having you join our frame drum community.
