Exeter School of Samba

Make Yourself Heard


Scott formed SAMBA MARCIANAS, the Exeter-based junior percussion group, in 2008 with a few of his Drum-kit students, aiming at giving students more opportunities to work within a team environment to develop their musical interaction and performance skills.

The band have performed at Coburg International Samba Festival in Germany 5 times and appeared on BBC’s “Don’t Tell The Bride”.

The 'Sambistas' learn traditional rhythms along with more contemporary material written by Scott. Members contribute their own ideas that further develops composition skills and giving SAMBA MARCIANAS their distinctive feel and personality. The result is a vibrant and energetic set.

The band has been highly acclaimed for their professionalism and exceptional musicianship and called the ‘Best junior Samba band in the world'!
