Previously 'samba' band
Our school drumming band used to be known as our samba band. Problem was that we didn't strictly always play samba rhythms, hence the name change.
The school drumming band is invite only and is there for those who have a knack, or 'gift' for drumming.
Drumming Band is COMPULSORY for GCSE students who play drums or percussion as their first or second instrument.
Samba Band - 28 June 2019 - concert prep session
Samba Band - 07 November 2019 - rehearsal 'high school rhythm'
Samba Band - 12 March 2020 - 'Three Four!' rehearsal
This was the last recorded session before the COVID pandemic school closure. This was a hard rhythm for them to learn. Many of these players had been in the 'samba band' since year 7 and it would have been incredible to hear this group at the peak of their ability. Hopefully, this recording captures some of their 'spirit'. They still had MONTHS of rehearsals to come and improve even further.
