PULSEdrum - find your rhythm!
PULSEdrum is a rhythm class, integrating drumming, stepping and singing simultaneously. Classes build foundations in rhythm, developing rhythmic confidence, creativity, and rhythm independence on all instruments.
Polyrhythms, cross-rhythms, and odd-time form the archetypal building blocks that are the foundation of Tania’s PULSE classes as she draws on her knowledge and training as a diverse percussionist, dancer, vocalist and Master
TaKeTiNa teacher after more than 20 years training and teaching.
Tania's drumming classes also include her newly created process, RHYTHM-Karta
RHYTHM-Karta is rhythm in pulse and flow combining elements of dance, martial art, and tai chi, to create a unique series of rhythm sequences designed by Tania to entrain complex cycles, polyrhythm and cross rhythms, through the body and voice.
Tania has also studied African, Korean, Latin and Haitian drumming and in 2004 she was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to research and study Korean drum and dance styles in Seoul, at the SamulNori Academy and returns regularly to study with her Master teachers including Jin Yu Rim, Master Assistant of Intangible Cultural Asset No. 27 and 97, and members of the SamulNori group.
Tania has continued to work for more than 30 years as a musician, actor, director, performing arts trainer, master rhythm teacher and highly regarded teaching specialist working on a wide range of projects, events, and festivals. Tania runs her PULSE drum classes between Europe and Australia.
'Tania's PULSE and TaKeTiNa inspired workshops make the often difficult and confrontational process of learning music and rhythm an exciting and rewarding process. Her clear, step-by-step guidance and encouragement has allowed me to play and understand rhythms that I'd previously felt were beyond my capacity’. Matt Young - drumming teacher, meditation teacher
