About the Presenter
Carolyn Koebel, MM, HPCMT-BC has been drumming since childhood, but fell in love with percussion of the world while studying ethnomusicology as an undergraduate. Her fieldwork research has taken her around the globe in search of traditional and indigenous drumming traditions from diverse cultures. She became a student of the frame drum twenty years ago after hearing Glen Velez perform at the opening session of the World Congress for Music Therapy. Since then, she has studied with Velez and Layne Redmond, as well as a host of other teachers. She began introducing the frame drum into her music therapy work in the late 1990’s and has been offering training workshops to the music therapy community since that time. She is an avid performer, educator and clinical music therapist. She regularly teaches this material to her students at Western Michigan University and Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods College.
