Escola de Bateria - Brazillian Music and Drumming Workshops

Escola de Bateria is a worldwide travelling percussion school from Hertfordshire, which offers top class samba style percussion drumming workshops to individuals and groups which range in length from one-hour sessions to two week residential courses abroad.

Run by the talented JP Courney and his team, workshops are a positive and energetic environment that is suitable for people of all abilities, from just trying it out, to those with more experience. We teach drumming workshops to an excellent standard, and are available during evenings, half days, full days and weekends – perfect for groups of any size.

Bateria work, arrangements, technique, choreography, instrument tuning, roda de samba, cavaco, and much more. While you're here make sure to check out our popular two week residential course in Rio de Janeiro.
