Students' Testimonials:

"I’d been learning Egyptian style Darbuka on and off (more off) for a few years and was in awe listening and watching amazing drummers on YouTube but felt stagnated.
I began seriously following Raquy’s style of drumming during our first lockdown 2020 and joined her online group drumming classes. What a treat that was for me! Her energy and passion for the Darbuka flows through to her playing and is contagious. Raquy has a wealth of knowledge, she is a classically trained musician and is incredibly skilled everything is broken down, and explained.
Raquy’s also has the online Darbuka School is rich with content for every level of Darbuka player. I recently overcame my apprehension and commenced Personal Coaching with Raquy, it has been the best decision in my learning journey. I feel challenged not overwhelmed and have a new passion for the Darbuka. Raquy has an incredible gift for teaching she is patient and supportive, I have noticed so much improvement in my playing which comes from the confidence she instills.
If you’re looking for online lessons or personal coaching look no further than Raquy and the Darbuka School."

"Everyone needs a Coach💃

I’m making sounds with my drum that I never knew my drum could make. I feel like I’m finally discovering the heart pulse of my drum. I have a renewed vigour, attunement and respect for my drum.
The pathway is clear and defined under Raquy’s tutelage.
She is a master player and teacher, and doesn’t miss a beat, or what I need.
Her weekly assignments take me on a journey of discovery and unfoldings in sooooo many ways.
I highly recommend her personal coaching if you are ready to step into your next level with your drum.
And because it’s personal, it’s tailored for where you’re at."

Hi, I'm Raquy and welcome to my Darbuka School!

Playing the darbuka is the love of my life.

Since I discovered this drum over 20 years ago, I've devoted myself to it in every aspect - practicing, performing, teaching, composing, even decorating my own drums! I have experience playing in traditional Middle Eastern ensembles, accompanying belly dance and my current projects features the darbuka as a shining solo instrument fit for a concert hall.

In the beginning of my darbuka journey I played traditional Arabic style. Then 10 years ago I saw what was happening in Turkey with this new "split hand" technique. I made my first pilgrimage to Istanbul to learn from the masters. I ended up moving to this magical city and opening the Darbuka Ofis in downtown Istanbul where you can still find me training daily with my Hocam, Bunyamin Olguncan and other Turkish drumming masters.

I'm passionate about teaching darbuka. I have devoted students all over the world who are now performing and teaching themselves. I have traveled far and wide, spreading joy and excitement for darbuka. I have developed an innovative teaching system, using an easily understood notation key which many darbuka players these days are using.

I'm thrilled to be able to present my teachings in this elegant platform. I love the fact that this is a living school that I can constantly update with the latest stuff.

May the darbuka bring you joy, inspiration and magical experiences as it has for me!
