A workshop weekender for people who play in carnival bands, drumming groups, percussionists and other musicians. We'll be just back from a couple of weeks study in Rio and will have loads of new material for everybody.

Learn new rhythms, musical arrangements, songs, and percussion instrument techniques all facilitated by world class tutors whilst meeting old and new friends from bands around the UK. Our last Escola de Bateria Edinburgh weekend was a huge success with over 50 participants from all over the UK, and this one promises to be just as popular!

Caixa, repique, surdo, tamborim, agogô, chocalho & timba. Please bring both your 1st and 2nd bateria instrument choice if possible. If you're not able to bring any instruments, please contact us before registering.
