Would you like to learn to play Afro-Brazilian drums?

Samba Ja welcomes you to a hands-on workshop series on traditional and modern batucada rhythms. No prior experience or equipment of your own is necessary; just show up and learn by playing together. In this supportive, beginner-friendly environment, we explore Samba Ja's actual performance repertoire, so that those who are interested in eventually joining the band and playing shows can start their training here.

When we say no experience necessary, we mean it. Many of our current members had never touched a drum before their first workshop. 

Summer term is free, but we accept donations.

Tuition for fall/winter/spring: $50 per term

Scholarships are available.

Contact samba.ja.workshop[at]gmail.com with scholarship inquiries, or show up to the first class and talk to the facilitator.

Workshops are offered in seasonal terms with breaks in between, loosely similar to the college term system, and each term covers different repertoire. If you attend four terms (one year), you will have played almost all of the Samba Ja repertoire. Players who demonstrate technical progress and proficiency with the repertoire will be invited to play at Wednesday Advanced rehearsals and then eventually invited to be a performing member. For more experienced musicians or quicker learners, this may happen before your one-year mark. Once you're playing shows, you stop paying tuition. 

 

Anyone is welcome to observe and listen in on Wednesday Advanced rehearsals.
