This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn new rhythms from talented professional musicians.  The master classes are open to everyone – from people with little experience of percussion to professional musicians. The sessions will teach you samba drumming techniques and you will learn two pieces of music, which you will be given the opportunity to perform at Nottingham Carnival as part of the City Arts Troupe.  There will also be a chance for you to perform again at ArtReach’s Night of Festivals, when it comes to Nottingham this September.

These free workshops have been made possible with sponsorship from MLC Academy and investment from ArtReach.

Book your FREE place now to learn some great new rhythms, develop your musical skills and build links with MLC Academy and City Arts Carnival Troupe.
