"The best two weeks of my life"
JP Percussion is proud to present the 6th Escola de Bateria in Rio de Janeiro.
10 days of tuition and accommodation, over 15 days and 14 nights in the Cidade Maravilhosa.
Places are strictly limited.
This life changing course is designed to wow and inspire you. Not only will you get the chance to study with and play alongside people who create the music you love but also the added bonus of being connected straight into the vast percussion scene in Rio. This could take several trips alone to accomplish.
