We’re pleased to announce our next intensive samba drumming course starting in October 2019.
The course will look at covering the rhythms and techniques required to play the main instruments in a Rio style samba band – Surdos, Caixa, Repinique, Tamborim & Chocalho. All instruments will be provided.
It will be held on 3 consecutive Sundays starting at the end of October, with each session lasting 3.5hours.
The class is suited for all levels of experience, where each participant will be pushed to learn more and achieve realistic goals. The aim of the course is for each participant to learn the basics of each instrument, before specialising on one towards the end of the course. This will give a holistic understanding to how each part comes together.
Teaching the course will be the Director of Bloco 3K and Unidos da Cacatua, Rob Arcari. Rob has been teaching Samba and other forms of percussion for more than 15 years across Europe and Australia. As well as leading groups here in Australia, he also plays with a number of blocos in Rio, and Escola de Samba Acadêmicos da Rocinha.
