Come and learn how to play the rhythms of the Brazilian carnival in a samba bateria. Multi-instrument tuition is intended to start you off learning how to play authentic samba in a large group, exactly how it is played in the famous samba schools of Rio de Janeiro. A rewarding and powerful experience.
Get the skills to play and find out how the parts of the rhythm lock together to create the most infectious dance groove in the world. You'll probably even pick up some Portuguese words and phrases and you will certainly get to know a great bunch of people. Tutors are director Roddy Dickson and his lovely assistant and puxador Doug Sam-Ra who both have a wealth of experience in samba bands and have both played in the Rio carnaval.
Beginners class is for absolutely anyone who fancies it and you are not tied in to anything.
Intermediate is for people who have been coming for a while or have relevant experience and are expected to attend every week on an ongoing basis. If you're not sure ask Roddy.
Instruments are provided.
You are welcome to bring a friend but rest assured new people come along all the time and it's totally normal to come by yourself.
