About Us

Maxime le Royer

TaKeTiNa rhythm teacher, Percussionist

I love journeying through the world of rhythm and music providing a space for personal and musical development through these powerful tools. 

My immersion into rhythm and music started in 2009 when learning how to play traditional West African rhythms on Djembe and base drums in Austria and Mali.

I was introduced to the TaKeTiNa rhythm method in 2010. Following my heart’s calling I participated in several trainings since 2011, up to completing the TaKeTiNa Rhythm Teacher Training in 2015. Since then I have been facilitating numerous TaKeTiNa workshops in Austria and internationally sharing the experiences of this healing work everywhere and in different settings (workshops, festivals, retreats, ceremonies, individual courses …)

Currently I am attending the Advanced TaKeTiNa Teacher Training.


- Life is Rhythm and Rhythm a Lifelong Journey -

Multi-instrumentalist, Music and Yoga teacher


I am dedicated to inspire consciousness, love and creativity through art.


After studying jazz, performing and teaching music in the Caribbean during 10 years I have been traveling over the past 8 years sharing the powerful vibrations of handpan and didgeridoo (…), playing for festivals, yoga classes, indigenous ceremonies, busking, house concerts… 


I am passionate about the harmony and mysticism of sound frequencies, conscious vibrations are a powerful way to improve our mental, emotional and physical health, and my work with music supports both therapeutic and creative purposes. 

My performances unfold spontaneously between compositions and improvisations, blending the vibrations of vocals, handpan, didgeridoo, Rav drum, guitar, gong, flutes, mouth harp… 

An invitation for what is alive in us to be expressed

in a conscious, artful and loving way.
