Event Description    Blue Mountains Teen Homeschool Group present ‘Zero to Rio’ with Richy Glasgow.

Using an adaptation of traditional Brazilian teaching technique, tutor Richy Glasgow will have you playing authentic orchestrated carnival rhythms in under 20 minutes, regardless of musical experience or ability.

In these workshops you will be introduced to the Brazilian bateria, or percussion orchestra that parades and accompanies carnival songs. No one is expected to read or write music: the rhythms are taught practically. These workshops encourage relaxation, listening as a communication tool and understanding the function of teams and the roles of team members.

Richy Glasgow utilises 30 years experience as a multi-instrumental musician and 18 years as a teacher of Brazilian percussion to take you on a joyous musical journey that runs from the religious ritual rhythms of north east Brazil to the samba de enredo that powers Rio Carnavale, the biggest party on earth.

We are inviting you to take part in this first session at no cost and with no obligation since Richy and I are confident that, once you’ve had the Zero to Rio experience, you will want to come back for more. So, if enough people wish, Richy will return for the following 3 Tuesdays to make this a workshop series you’ll be talking about for a while to come.
