“I consider Marla to be one of the very top percussion performers in the US of today. She is well known in the community for her virtuosity and artful skill with hand drums.”
~ Glen Velez, 4-time Grammy-winning percussionist

"Marla is such a generous and empowering teacher! Her passion for drumming is infectious. I went from not playing a musical instrument at all to drumming for my yoga classes in a couple of months."
~ Meaghan Beishline, Yoga Teacher &Frame Drum Academy Grad

"I never imagined that I could be the drummer that I am today. Marla not only teaches the skills necessary to play the frame drum, but she teaches how to improvise and play, where each drummer is able to share their own creativity through the sacred song of their drum.”
~Kristin R., Healer & Frame Drum Academy Grad



Marla is a Grammy-nominated musician, who has been performing, composing and teaching for nearly 30 years and is one of the few female professional frame drummers in the world today.

A musician since the age of  3, Marla holds a BFA and MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, and has studied with masters in the world of percussion, flute and composition. She is an endorsed artist with Cooperman Frame Drums, and has created her own ‘signature series’ drums.

Upon the death of her mother at a young age, she found deep sanctuary in music and was inspired to explore its transformative powers. Taking that knowledge, she has been composing and performing since a young age.

In 2015, Marla founded The Frame Drum Academy, which currently has hundreds of happy students and is growing by the day!  Passionate about music for healing, her compositions have featured in movies, commercials and healing arts DVDs. In 2020, Marla released her debut album, ‘Rhythms of Tof Miriam’, that featured world-renowned musicians from Israel. 

Exploring ancient cultures, both musically and spiritually, Marla integrates meditation and yoga into her daily life, as a complement to her soulful music creations.  She also offers drum retreats and workshops worldwide, which focus on a therapeutic approach to learning music.
