It's time again for another exotic rhythm workshop with Cyro Baptista and Billy Martin

Limited to 10 students - 2 days - $200
Tenafly, NY



Cyro will discuss Brazilian culture, music and being a percussionist.
This is a hands on type of workshop, starting with basic rhythms and getting into more complex patterns, the students develop their perception and musical intuition.
Billy will conduct a creative music workshop using various 'exotic' percussion instruments on-hand. We will improvise as a group and encourage individuals to solo within each piece of music we create together.

Instruments provided by Cyro and Billy.

Location: Cyro's house in Tenafly - NJ
