Play With Billy and Cyro at Cyros Place
Billy Martin and Cyro Baptista will host a four day workshop in a unique setting on May 10, 13, 15 and 17. These ninety minute sessions, which will be limited to ten students, will take place at Cyro’s house in Tenafly, NJ. Baptista will discuss Brazilian culture, music and being a percussionist. This is a hands on type of workshop, starting with basic rhythms and getting into more complex patterns, the students develop their perception and musical intuition. Martin will conduct a creative music workshop using various ‘exotic’ percussion instruments on-hand. We will improvise as a group and encourage individuals to solo within each piece of music we create together. The cost is $400 for the four sessions, with additional details available at Baptista’s web site.
