"The best two weeks of my life"

Some people have found this course so inviting that they have done it 3 times!!

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 and unique experience 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.

We believe that we have the best contacts within the scene in Rio and we want you to have them too. We take away all the faff and get you straight to the source.

All this while staying in beautiful apartments in the world famous copacabana beach area.

Please make sure to read the course criteria in the more info section to be eligible for this unique course.

Covid Guarantee
If this course cannot go ahead because of covid restrictions we will offer every student a full refund or a transfer of fees to an alternative date.
