Samba drumming workshops for schools

"Robin and the BishBashBosh samba drumming experience were incredible! We have been struggling away with our samba band for the year, and for someone to come in and show us and the kids how it should be done was fantastic! The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and all agreed it sounded great. "

Emma Brent, Head of Music Performance, Winchmore Secondary School

Our exciting Primary samba drumming workshops  are designed for children of all ages, from Reception until Year 6, regardless of musical ability.  Staff can also get involved,  joining in with their class, or as part of their CPD. If you like, we'll create a tailor-made workshop just for you.

Our samba workshops bring the sounds of the Brazilian carnival to you, never mind the weather outside!  We teach from simple beats until the most complex Afro-Brazilian rhythms, we also go through arrangements , dance steps, and the whole structure of a samba school, so the students have a very close idea of the 'real deal'. Also Cyro himself is Brazilian.

Samba drumming workshops for schools have so many benefits:

-  they're fun!
-  they encourage teamwork - each instrument plays a simple rhythm but their combined sound is         awesome!
-  they're great for co-ordination
-  they develop concentration and watching and listening skills
-  they teach about a rich musical culture which has had a huge influence on contemporary music 
   and dance styles
