ABOUT BODY2DRUM

BODY2DRUM is a new concept to learn Drums and Percussion that opens up the rhythmic knowledge of the body - our primal instrument - to then translate the information into the instruments, through the combination of the tools offered in both the TaKeTiNa process and the R.I.T.M.O. methodology, developed and created by Reinhard Flatischler and Túpac Mantilla. 

 

From body percussion to ensemble playing, from composition to improvisation, from traditional instruments from different cultures to modern approaches in percussion setups, the spectrum covered by this training offers you an unprecedented variety, depth and intensity.

FOR WHOM IS BODY2DRUM? 

Body2Drum is for professionals and for ambitious newcomers. It is for everyone who wants to use rhythm in music, education, performance, dance or therapy.

      

The training can provide participants with a foundation for a deep engagement with rhythm, inspiration, creativity and leadership. 

Furthermore, it will help you make your drums and percussion instruments your daily companion - to express yourself, to meditate or to build-up your professional stage work.

EXPERIENCE RHYTHMIC FLOW 

FROM THE BODY TO THE INSTRUMENT ​

BODY2DRUM OFFERS YOU

FREEDOM

BODY2DRUM is taught in a way that leads you to the freedom to find and express your own voice and musical expression. Instead of learning rhythmic patterns, you will learn to assemble and connect archetypal rhythmic building blocks.
