The Pulse Project was initiated by Atman in collaboration with HOTA (Home of the Arts) on the Gold Coast early 2022. The project received a tremendous interest, which was beyond our expectations. After having a very successful year with nearly 50 students throughout the year, we decided to continue with the project on the Gold Coast in 2023 too.

This year we are going to have some different teacher and rhythms to last year as we like being a dynamic project!

On our curriculum we are going to have Foundations of Rhythm, Middle Eastern Rhythms, Indian Rhythms, African Rhythms, Latin Rhythms, Turkish and Balkan Rhythms this year.

Our founder Atman is a professional percussionist from Turkey, who has learned Middle Eastern and Turkish drums with the great masters of Darbuka. His search for understanding the Secrets of Rhythm led him to discover the Rhythmic System he shares within the Pulse Project. He is going to teach Foundations of Rhythm, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin and Turkish & Balkan Rhythms.

Gareth Cohen is a highly talented musician from South Africa, who has been trained in West African Percussion for 15+ years. He is very enthusiastic to teach his passion. We had him last year with us and we are honoured to maintain him in our team.
