Join Swan Samba

Three taster sessions for just £15!

There is something very elemental about drumming. Drums are the world’s oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments, and the basic design has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years.

A good drumming session is a great way to de-stress after a day at the office. Studies have demonstrated that drumming can have positive impacts on both mental and physical health.

Swan Samba play an energetic mix of Samba music styles, including Samba Reggae, Funk, Maracatu, Ijexa, Ragga and more.

Drum classes take place every Tuesday during term time from 6pm-7.30pm at Swanmore College, Hampshire.

Sessions are open to ages 11+ and all abilities, run in affiliation with Roynon Performing Arts, a school established for almost 40 years.

We are a friendly bunch and you are sure of a warm welcome. Tuition is informal and other band members will be on hand to help you quickly get up to speed. Once you become a full member you will have access to a wealth of online drumming material through our band resources website.

Drums will be provided for the first three taster sessions for the main band sessions (each Tuesday).

All participants MUST fill out the Roynon enrolment form prior to attending and will need to bring their own earplugs.

You must also notify us of when you wish to start attending so health and safety is adhered to, you are on class registers and that we can have the adequate equipment and space ready for your first session.

During the taster sessions you will get the opportunity to try out different drums and decide if Samba is right for you before investing in your own drum.

Taster sessions are available all year during term time, but may be limited as we approach the Summer gigging season (typically June – August).

Alternatively, we welcome any enquiries so feel free to contact us for more details.
