   Watch Promo Enroll Here!

For the last 8 years Raquy has been training in Istanbul with incredible Turkish Darbuka players. Now she will share this knowledge with the world

Every Sunday Raquy will post a brand new broadcast of the latest material! The broadcasts will have almost no speaking so students from any country can participate.

Because this style keeps changing and developing there is a great value in being able to share the latest material every week. Members will get to practice with Raquy on the material that she is currently working on herself!

The broadcasts will be 20 – 25 minute long videos.

"Split Hand Full Course" which is included in the membership package goes over all the techniques you need to be able to follow the broadcasts.

All of the broadcasts are available to be purchased individually as part of a monthly or annual membership program.

Monthly Package - $35 a month. Annual Package $299 a year.

The broadcasts start out simple and build up until you are playing a complicated pattern by the end.

Beginners can also follow the broadcasts as long as they are working with Split Hand Darbuka Part II (Included in the membership package). New players can always revert to playing only the right hand when the patterns get too fast.

Raquy Danziger
Raquy Danziger


Raquy Danziger is a celebrated performer, teacher, and composer known worldwide for her expertise on the dumbek, or darbuka, the Middle-Eastern goblet drum. Hailing from unlikely Western roots, Raquy has distinguished herself as a unique phenomenon and earned a place of renown in the genre. She has collaborated and performed with some of the most famous Middle Eastern drummers in the world and has given concerts and workshops across the USA, Canada, The Middle East, Asia, Europe, Russia and South America.

Now based in Istanbul, Turkey, Raquy specializes in the Turkish Split Hand Technique. This style was born twenty years ago when the Turkish drummers began splitting the hand, thus attaining unprecedented speed and dexterity. In 2012 Raquy opened her “Darbuka Ofis” in downtown Istanbul, where she trains daily under the direction of her teacher master drummer Bunyamin Olguncan. Her Ofis has become a center for drumming., attracting drummers from all over the world who flock to Istanbul to learn from Raquy and Bunyamin.

In addition to the dumbek, Raquy also plays the twelve- string Kemenche Tarhu, a rare and exotic bowed instrument, designed after the Iranian spike fiddle. She currently studies the kemenche with Iranian kemenche master Arlsan Hazreti in Istanbul. Raquy has composed over thirty melodic pieces and for the kemenche as well as countless drumming pieces which she plays in her concerts and which can be heard in the nine albums she has released.

She has had the honor of performing several times in Egypt as a soloist with Said El Artist (The Egyptian "King of Tabla") and his drumming orchestra at the Cairo Opera House, the Alexandria Opera House, the Cairo Citadel, the historic Ewart Hall in downtown Cairo, and the Great Hall in the Bibliotheque in Alexandria. In 2005, she was the recipient of the Meet the Composer grant, which enabled her to perform her original composition with Said El Artist's orchestra in Egypt. Raquy has appeared on Good Morning Egypt, Leila Kebira, O TV, the Culture Channel,Turkish Television, Arabs Got Talent, and has been interviewed on Al Gezira.

Raquy's infectious enthusiasm for Middle Eastern music has attracted students from around the globe. She has released four Dumbek Instructional Kits each of which includes a book, a DVD and a CD. These have helped to spread “Dumbek Fever” far and wide, opening new horizons for students. Raquy hosts drumming retreats and seminars for her students in various locations across the globe. She has also created her own line of custom-designed drums that are available through her online store - The Raquy Drum Store.
