Marla Leigh Goldstein is a specialist in the Tof Miriam, the drum of Miriam, also known as the “frame drum”.


Marla just launched an online learning academy, Frame Drum Academy with a online program and offering Frame Drum Workshop Series in Topanga starting this Feb .  She also plans to launch a fundraising campaign this spring for her debut world music album that will have some Hebrew chanting – and portions will be recorded in Israel in 2016!

“Drumming has been a foundational aspect of healing rituals for indigenous peoples worldwide, for thousands of years. All life is rhythm; our blood flows, heart beats and lungs breathe in rhythmic patterns. The sun and moon rise and set in cyclical rhythms just as the seasons change in rhythmic cycles.”Read Marla’s cover story on LA Yoga magazine
