Caixa/Snare Drum Workshop

  • December 8, 2012 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Master percussionist Rodney DeAssis will give a focused workshop on caixa (Brazilian Snare Drum) and stick technique.

Samba Da Mudança is pleased to present this workshop on the caixa, one of the most essential instruments in any Samba ensemble. In this workshop we'll go over sticking, rhythms, exercises and work on improving your playing of this important instrument.

All levels are welcome, though this will go into some intermediate/advanced territory towards the end.

We'll also work on Caixa rhythms for Grooversity, Mangueira and Samba Da Mudança rhythms!

$15 donation for the class. Some drums provided.
Please bring a caixa or snare drum and stand if you have any.

Contact Ali Lexa, if you don't know the exact location.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
