Beginners Workshop 2022



Introduction to Brazilian Drumming
Beginners’ Workshop (8 weeks) 

Starting in late-June 2022, Bay Batucada will hold a series of Beginners' Workshops for anyone in Hawke's Bay interested in becoming a part of our Brazilian drumming whānau.

Over eight weekly sessions on Tuesday nights, we will introduce you to the techniques and the main patterns we play in the band.

You will have the opportunity to try out several of the percussion instruments that we play, including:
tamborim (a small handheld drum played with a stick)
caixa (snare drum)
agogô (bells)
chocalho (shakers)

Our Musical Director Rinie will guide you in learning the main rhythms, and other experienced players from the Performance Group will be there to provide assistance and support.

Before you know it, you will be playing music along with us! 

On completion of the workshop, you will be invited to join the group and attend the All Band practices on Wednesday nights.
