The Christchurch School of Music Samba Band was established in 2001 when the CSM purchased a set of samba bateria (percussion) instruments from Brazil. The CSM Samba Band is great for secondary and adult students interested in learning how to play the percussion music of Brazil. (You do not need previous experience!) Using traditional instruments we will explore the various Samba styles. We will teach the rhythms by active participation, listening and copying, so note reading skills are not essential. Come and join us for 60 minutes of fun, laughter and great music.
