Developed in the early 1970’s by Austrian composer and percussionist Reinhard Flatischler, and co-developed by Cornelia Flatischler, TaKeTiNa is a musical group process that allows people to access their innate ability to express and embody rhythm, whether they are complete beginners or musically accomplished.
See the TaKeTiNa section for complete information.

Welcome to Whole Person Drumming®
Zorina Wolf writes:
Whole Person Drumming® was developed from the two major rhythmic influences in my life: Baba Olatunji and the TaKeTiNa rhythm method.
Baba's curriculum is joyous, connecting us to our earth-based roots-- learning drum, song and dance.
TaKeTiNa is a way of learning to feel rhythm directly in the body-- without an instrument.
Together, they form an opportunity for a deepened experience of feeling and connecting to ourselves and others through music and movement.
Look for the Whole Person Drummming book and DVD to be released in late fall 2015!
