Online Persian Drum Lessons

Skype Iranian Drum Lessons

Teaching Iranian drums is something I've done for more than 30 years. I teach the following drums (through Skype or Google Meet):

  1. The tonbak (Persian goblet-shaped drum, also known as the tombak or the zarb): In Persian art music, the tonbak is the principal percussion instrument.

  2. The dayereh (Persian frame drum) and the ghaval (Azerbaijani medium-sized drum): One of the most prominent drums in Persian folk and art music is the dayereh.

  3. The daf (Persian large-sized drum): In Persian art and folk music, the daf is the most widely used drum after the tonbak.

Whether you are looking for a way to learn how to play the tonbak, the dayereh, or the daf, you have come to the right place. Let me feature the following notes on the drums, tonbak, ghaval, and daf:
