After-school clubs


Olá Samba runs after-school clubs for Primary and Secondary schools throughout Gloucestershire. 


Children will have the opportunity to learn a range of rhythms on authentic drums in a friendly club.


All abilities are welcome; it is one of the few musical clubs that requires no previous training or outside lessons.


There are even opportunities for children to take the whistle and lead their peers.


Before long, the club will be trained and ready to perform at school concerts and in the wider community!
