Introduction/Beginner Classes 

Beat Factor Samba School. Begin your Samba drumming journey while immersing yourself in Brazilian/Samba percussion and culture. 

Learn the technical basics of the big low sound of the Surdo, rattling sound of the Caixa, the sharp percussive sound of Tamborims, and the melodic sounds of the agogo bells. Join us and sample a few specific playing styles in our Introduction classes – the perfect starting ground for your Samba School journey. The curriculum is divided into two 4–8-week periods: Introduction Introduction/Beginners and Intermediates, and over the course of two terms, you will be introduced to the foundations of Samba/Brazilian percussion including exploring numerous traditional playing styles, learning the names of the many different drums and percussion that make up the Samba family, and drumming terminology. 

The difference between a regular Beginners and Intermediates class is that you are going to learn not only Samba percussion but also some of its variants in the Brazilian percussion culture.

Designed for students with little to some knowledge of Brazilian drumming skills, the course focuses on learning basic rhythms, song structures and terminology used in the context of Samba playing.

The course is led by experienced teacher (Rod Pilois) with qualifications in percussion teaching, as well as vast experience in Samba, world music studies and performing arts. 

Prior musical training is not required – just bring yourself and an open heart and mind! All of our classes have a welcoming and fun atmosphere, and we are sure you will walk away with the Samba rhythm in your body.

It is the Samba School’s policy that students should wear hearing protection while attending our classes. You can bring your own ear plugs or purchase disposable foam ear plugs at the class for $1.00.
