Drum Doula Coaching​

I offer 1-1 coaching that I lovingly call serving as a “drum doula.” I work with clients who feel called to build their relationship with drumming- primarily hand drums. We aim to work together for 6 months, which is a length of time allowing for deep unfolding of the coaching process and sufficient time to meet many of your goals around drumming.  

 

What we can explore can include but is not limited to:

 

  • Being a woman or non-binary person drumming and liberating  one's personal expression and empowerment

  • Research into different drum lineages and figuring out which one to start with

  • Becoming observant of rhythm

  • Applying nature awareness skills

  • Getting into a "rhythm" of playing and practicing - both alone and with others

  • Confidence in drumming, making noise, and how this translates to other parts of your life

"I highly recommend Eva Orbuch as your leadership/community organizing coach or drum doula. I have been going deep with Eva as my drum doula for over six months and I can attest that she is a wise, compassionate, and accountable coach. I leave each session feeling understood, strengthened, and clear about my next empowered steps as an artist, community leader, and priestess."

"Eva is a great collaborator and team player, with strong percussion and vocal skills. She always came prepared and ready for fun and engagement when we played music and facilitated the Work that Reconnects together. Eva brings creative ideas yet is also flexible to the ideas of others, making her a great person to work with.  Eva also has great people skills, engaging groups of people with kindness and curiosity. Together we were able to create welcoming and warm spaces."

She Drums

She Drums is an in-process documentary film project and a labor of love for me. It is a journey through rhythm, voice, culture, and exploring the destinies of female drummers and their journey to break the taboo of women drumming. I am created profile videos of over 20 female drummers from a variety of cultural backgrounds living in or with connection to the San Francisco Bay Area.
