For information to become a Zoom or actual student:
I believe that rhythm is an intelligence. As we align with this knowledge--which is neutral--neither praising or blaming-- we find rhythm is a place of rest, self-healing, acceptance, and inner self-organization. Rhythmic intelligence teaches us to be embodied and fully present. And allows us to learn at our own pace, and to be kind to ourselves and others.
When you enter into Zorina Wolf’s Whole Person Drumming curriculum, you will learn the basics of drum technique and orchestration on a variety of drums and percussion instruments.
This teaching style offers you the experience of rhythm found in the body–exploring pulsation through movement and voice–with and without the drum.
Once we understand the feeling of rhythm in the body, it is easier to play your instrument.
Traveling through the landscape of a rhythm opens us to more than the drum patterns we play. It demonstrates how we can inhabit and understand pulsation and interval, create orchestration– and bring ourselves more into the present moment through our music.
The effect that rhythm has on our bodies, minds and feelings is as important as learning any drum accompaniment.
This path is one of the many modalities available to foster a mindful connection to yourself.

WHOLE PERSON DRUMMING
YOUR JOURNEY INTO RHYTHM
Drumming is about sound. And it is also about silence. In Whole Person Drumming, Zorina Wolf shares her passion for drumming and the heartfelt community it can create. With plenty of stories from her own journey as student and teacher, she offers exercises for all learning styles, with accompanying videos.
Wolf studied for fourteen years with Babatunde Olatunji, the great Nigerian drummer, and has taught drumming for more than twenty five years. In her own accessible, personal style she teaches basic techniques: the drum’s language of bass, tone, and slap; how to build stamina; how to find the rhythm in your body through stepping or speaking rhythm syllables. Here you will learn how to hear the silence between the beats, how to turn rhythm into meditation as you practice samba, conga, kpanlogo, and more.
