News: Frame Drum Retreat with Master Drummer, Andrea Piccioni at Spannocchia, Italy, October 19-26, 2023 This retreat is a unique opportunity for an intimate group of students to study with Master Drummer, Andrea Piccioni, who will share with us not only the history of the Frame Drum in Italy, but also his unique playing style that he calls “Hand to Hand,” a Method for Tamburello and Frame Drum. His is a unique approach to aligning and focusing the mind, body and instrument. This retreat is for a group of 10-15 frame drummers, with at least an intermediate level of skill. It will be held at Spannocchia, Tuscany, which is an historic estate, educational foundation, and organic farm. Andrea will focus some of his teaching on the Italian tradition of drums with and without jingles. This will involve sharing some of the history of the tambourine in Italy, which is deeply related especially to women since this was the instrument of women from the earliest times. Livia Giaffreda, a colleague of Andrea’s, will be joining us for 3-4 days to introduce us to some of the traditional dances and vocal pieces, as these elements are all deeply related, interpenetrating one another.
