Afro-Brazilian Drumming

A Multi-Age Music Experience

There is no age limit to learning and living with purpose. Our Adult Enrichment opportunities vary from guided travel across the country and globe to exploring music, movement, and more right here at home.

Join us Tuesday afternoons for Afro-Brazilian Drumming! If you've ever heard the sound of drums while walking around campus or attended a CFS Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration, then you've heard a drum ensemble in action. You can enjoy musical magic with Caique as he runs an afternoon drumming ensemble where you'll explore the traditions, history, and culture of Brazil; learn tempo, pulse, meter, swing, improvisation, and basic rhythmic music theory; and spend most of your time playing music. This group works best when it’s large, so sign up and encourage your friends to join you! We welcome middle and high school students and any interested adults for either or both sets of four-week sessions.

No previous drumming experience is required. 

Schedule: 3:30-5:00 pm Tuesdays

  • Session 1: February 27; March 5, 12, 19
  • Session 2: April 9, 16, 23, 30
