Playing drums is a unique experience and one of the
few musical experiences which need no formal musical training. To get
a sound out of a drum is not difficult and samba drumming is therefore
immediately accessible. It depends on how far you want to progress of
course and when you attend a samba workshop we can guide you through
the basics of hitting a drum in time and keeping a steady 'beat' or
'rhythm' to playing slightly more difficult rhythms. Just like anything
else it may take time to develop real skill if you haven't tried it
.If you think you may have a an interest in playing drums
or any one of the other instruments in the samba percussion section

Who attends the workshops?
Anyone who is interested in playing. Samba has no barriers regarding
race, creed, age, etc. Drumming is truly a universal language and drumming
in any community is a good way of breaking down any artificial barriers.
Drumming in groups fosters a sense of 'connectedness'.
Rhythm is around us constantly, in the regular rhythms and cycles
of nature, in the rhythm of sleeping and waking etc.When we walk
down the road we are creating a regular pattern of movement, a rhythhm.
In actual fact we could not live without it regardless of if we
aware of it's presence in our lives or not.
