Brazilian Bateria Class
College Park Trolley Trail Day Spotlight: https://collegeparkpartnership.org/trolleytrailday/
Learn from Brazilian samba master percussionist André Coelho from Rio de Janeiro! André will demonstrate and teach each of the essential Brazilian samba percussion instruments. We will have some percussion instruments available for participants to use, but please bring your own instruments if you have any.
This is a regularly occurring Brazilian percussion ensemble practice. All levels are welcome to participate.
We also have a separate, simultaneous session specifically geared towards children, taught by Filipe Brandão from Minas Gerais. Lessons are taught in Brazilian Portuguese and English. If you want to strengthen your children’s ties to their home culture and heritage language, or if you want a great, authentic music experience for your little ones, then sign up now! Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult at these sessions. No drop-offs allowed. Recommended for children ages 6 and up.
Registration for the full semester of lessons (11 total) is $90. Scholarships are available to those for whom cost is prohibitive (contact us for more information).
The event is a program of College Park-based arts non-profit EducArte. Special thanks to our event sponsor, the College Park Arts Exchange.
Thanks also to our instrument sponsor, Contemporânea. EducArte exclusively uses Contemporânea instruments at our Brazilian percussion events.
