We Conduct Workshops All Over The World
Samba New York! can bring the same knowledge and experience that we use to train our own musicians and dancers to your organization! Known as “Dr. Samba” for his rare combination of practical and academic expertise in Brazilian music, Philip Galinsky, Ph.D. — Director of Samba New York! and a leading specialist in Brazilian music in the field of ethnomusicology — is one of the most respected and influential educators of samba drumming in the US. Over the last two decades, he has developed a unique teaching method that has enabled countless students of all musical backgrounds to understand samba analytically and to play it at a high level with the proper Brazilian feel.
Having successfully tested this methodology in Samba New York! and by conducting workshops at numerous institutions since 1994, Dr. Samba has just the right set of skills to take your group, whether composed of complete beginners or professionals, to the next level of proficiency in samba music performance.
