FROM THE BODY TO THE INSTRUMENT

Body2Drum is not just any percussion training. It helps you to open up the rhythmic knowledge of the body – the basis for finding your musical expression, playing freely and getting into the groove.

Not just a training, but a new way of learning…

We want to encourage you to go out into the world with your passion, your talent and your skills and to realize your own projects. It’s about recognizing, ‘Oh yes, I’m learning something here that is completely new!’

The training brings practice and inspiration to grow musically.

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 spectrum covered by this training offers you an unprecedented variety, depth and intensity.

This is possible because:

In my groups we focus on complex polyrhythms and extraordinary cycles.

The main aspect is the coordination of left and right and the following instruments: conga, bass drum, stick drum, frame drum, changgo, shekere, berimbau and creative percussion instruments.

    In my focus groups we combine percussion instruments and concepts from African, Middle Eastern, Indian and South American traditions and thereby break away from certain musical genres or styles.

    My focus is on the cajon, different types of frame drums, bass drums, cymbals and small percussion.

    FAQs

    WHAT IS BODY2DRUM?

    Playing drums and percussion is an exciting adventure. But before it even makes sense to touch a drum, the body – your primal instrument – needs to be tuned first. That is, what Body2Drum is all about.

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

    FOR WHOM IS BODY2DRUM?

    For rhythm enthusiasts with different levels of experience.

    DO I NEED PRIOR KNOWLEDGE?

    Basic knowledge of drumming makes it easier to get started, but we do not require any specific knowledge. Body2Drum is about learning rhythm in a new context. Everyone can benefit from this approach at the point he or she steps in. Participants with great playful experience can use precise instructions to restructure their playing technique.

    HOW CAN I FIND OUT IF THE TRAINING IS RIGHT FOR ME?

    You can find out at the introductory / selection workshop from March 31st to April 4th. Tupac and Reinhard present their Body2Drum approach in detail, give insights into how they work and can give individual advice.

    If you have any questions in advance, write us an email: office@taketina.com

    HOW MANY INSTRUMENTS CAN I LEARN IN THIS TRAINING?

    The focus is on one main instrument. In addition, a variety of percussion instruments can be learned.

    If there is a desire to learn another instrument, we will decide together whether it makes sense with individual skills.

    DO I HAVE TO CHOOSE AN INSTRUMENT NOW?

    No. You can decide that in our introduction workshop.

    WHAT IS THE INTRODUCTION / SELECTION WORKSHOP FOR?

    This introduction and selection workshop is the beginning of the Drum- and Percussion-Training Body2Drum, which begins in June 2021. The workshop is aimed at everyone who is interested in Body2Drum, wants to experience the pedagogical approaches of TaKeTiNa and R.I.T.M.O. and likes to see, how they blend together.

    The workshop gives you the opportunity to get to know two leading percussionists and educators of our time in person. The workshop includes practical exercises, rhythm journeys, concert parts, lectures and discussions.

    If you have any questions about Body2Drum, use these workshop days to talk to Reinhard and Tupac directly, to get answers on questions about the content and also try out different drums. The workshop invites you to exchange ideas with the group, and let TaKeTiNa and R.I.T.M.O. guide you in a state of creativity, freedom and timelessness.

    Participants accepted in the training should decide which drums they want to learn so the training can start in the best possible way. There is the possibility that drum makers trusted by the leaders will be present at the workshop, helping you to chose the instrument suited for you.

     

    WHAT IF I CANNOT JOIN THE SELECTION WORKSHOP?

    Please contact us in this case. We recommend the workshop to everyone to get to know the leaders and the working methods.

    CAN I INTEGRATE THE CONTENT OF THE TRAINING INTO MY WORK LATER?

    Yes, the skills on the drums and the experience in the group sessions and the pedagogical approaches will definitely enrich your work. TaKeTiNa and R.I.T.M.O. are not taught as methods in this training. There are special formats for this.
