Calling all budding drummers!!

Big Noise have received a grant from Gosport Cultural Consortium to form a Youth Samba band. The project,  will involve young people aged 12 - 17 attending weekly rehearsals at St Johns Church in Gosport where they will learn to play rhythms from Brazil which have inspired many modern styles including Funk, Soul, Pop, Hip Hop and R&B. The group will also have the opportunity to perform at local events.  Sessions are FREE and no experience is required. Our aim is to engage young people in music making and to champion the benefits of participation in music.

First session - St Johns Church Mon 13th Feb 6pm - 7:30 pm
