I’m so excited and honored to be teaching a Beginning Bateria class at the 2019 California Brazil Camp.

California Brazil Camp

Session One: August 18-24, 2019

Beginning Bateria class description

Carl’s Beginning Bateria class will focus on the instruments of the samba schools of Rio, including surdo, caixa, repique, tamborim, agogô, chocalho, and others. Material covered will include common samba rhythms and breaks played in samba school baterias and other Brazilian rhythms played by blocos. Techniques for each instrument will be demonstrated and practiced, with a focus on developing skills for long term improvement.

This class will be great for percussionists of all levels interested in playing Brazilian percussion in a group, learning traditional rhythms, and developing percussion technique. No previous experience necessary.

More information and resources coming soon!
