Master Class in Brazilian and Latin Music/Jazz!
Robin McClellan's Home Sanfordville (http://robinmcclellan.com/ for directions!)
Potsdam, NY
Share this event:

Led by the amazing Brazilian drummer and percussionist Vanderlei Pereira, from Rio de Janeiro, the group will give a 2 hour masterclass demonstrating a wide variety of Brazilian styles and rhythms, from samba and bossa nova to baiao, chorinho, afoxe, frevo and more. As Vanderlei says: "I believe that the key to performing Brazilian and Latin music authentically lies in the ability to hear and analyze the various rhythms of each genre and to understand the connection between the percussive and tonal instruments in the ensemble."

The group will demonstrate examples of these styles and will talk about some of the important ideas to apply to their own instruments. We'll have group participation also, with attendees learning the rhythms of the styles by clapping patterns from the important percussion instruments that are the foundation of each style. There will be handout that can be taken home with the rhythms explained and practice patterns for guitar, piano, bass and drums/percussion. as well as a list of great resources, CDs and books, that can be used to continue working on the music.
