Beginners’ Samba Course Begins Next Week.

Another school year starts, and with it, another opportunity to develop some samba skills, with our top drumming tutors.

Each year deliver an eight-week basic foundation in samba drumming, covering most of the key instruments, and developing a number of different pieces of music in some of the most popular styles of Afro-Brasilian percussion.

Ideal for complete beginners or improvers, some people use it as a way of preparing to enter into MaSamba’s regular Wednesday rehearsals, and for others, it is just a fun activity to while away the Autumn evenings. Either way, it will be very hands on, with participants playing as an ensemble from the very first session. The course is also popular with teachers, keen to develop percussion skills and ideas to use in the classroom.

The course takes place on Tuesday evenings from 7pm – 8.45pm, at our rehearsal space in the Liberties area of Dublin. (click for google map).

The course begins on Tuesday, September 10th and costs €100 with an €80 concessionary fee for students, unemployed or people with disabilities, and can be paid in advance or on the first night of the course.
