Learn the basics of hand drumming while tapping into the powerful meditative side of drumming for wellness. Join this incredible community.

Join Jared Bistrong of the Miami Sound Institute for a NEW 6-Week introduction to hand drumming program starting September 11th. Participants learn the basics of drumming. We focus mainly on learning to play the Djembe drum, but also explore a variety of aspects of percussion instruments.

This class helps students develop a powerful cultivation practice around drumming that nurtures a personal meditation and wellness practice. You will learn the history of different drums and percussion instruments, specific techniques and exercises for each instrument, and a variety of traditional and non-traditional rhythms from around the world. You’ll also naturally pick up the do’s and don’t’s of drumming etiquette.

By joining this powerful drumming community, you will also have opportunities to play at live wellness & music events with the South Beach Sound Healing Orchestra.

No prior experience is necessary, however, participants must bring their own hand drum. Jared can help you find and purchase a drum prior to the start of class.

This initial program lasts for 6 weeks. Once you have completed it, you can continue coming to classes at a discounted drop-in rate $35.

[optional] Drop into a session for $50. Modern ŌM Members pay $40 per drop-in.




Mondays, 6:30 – 7:30pm. Check-in begins at 6:15pm. Please arrive on time.


A Miami native, Jared Bistrong is the director of the Miami Sound Institute & The South Beach Sound Healing Orchestra. His sound healing and drum performances have been featured all over the world.
