4-Week AKSamba Intro Course

Looking for a new hobby? Keen to meet awesome new people? Enjoy music and hitting things really hard?

Join our Introduction to Brazilian Percussion Course: Four Monday evenings of drumming fun led and supported by seasoned AKSamba members. An exhilarating experience!

No previous experience required. Instruments, tuition and foam earplugs provided.

  • Because of elevated noise levels, our workshops are not open to under 16s and are not suitable for pregnant people.
  • Spaces are limited so bookings are essential.
  • Because spaces in AKSamba are limited, unfortunately taking a course does not guarantee you a spot in the group.
  • We will go ahead at the COVID-19 orange and green traffic lights. At the red traffic light we will postpone and recommence when circumstances allow.
  • COVID-19 vaccine passes will be required of all participants. Leaders and band member helpers for this course are all fully vaccinated.

Watch this space for details of further workshops. Keep informed of the details of our workshops by joining the AKSamba Friends e-mail list.
