Bloco Notto

Bloco Notto gives young people the opportunity to learn and develop skills on percussion instruments from across the globe, with tuition from experienced percussionists.

We run two Bloco Notto groups. Our Beginner's Group is for young people with little to some experience of playing instruments, while our Advanced Group is aimed at people who have been playing a percussion instrument for a while and want to learn more complex samba rhythms. Bloco Notto has performance opportunities throughout the year at our concerts and city cultural events. All instruments are provided so just come armed with your spirit and love for music!
