Learn the techniques, patterns, rhythms and melodies of Latin American music. This will take your playing to a new level!
We will explore three classical Latin American Melodies. A Paraguayan melody called “Llegada” will introduce us to the fascinating syncopated rhythm that combines 3/4 and 6/8 and various decorative Paraguayan techniques. “El Condor Pasa,” the most famous melody from the Andes, also known as “If I could” by Simon and Garfunkel, will introduce us to the traditional huayno style music from the Andes. “Moliendo Café” is a classic Venezuelan song that will get you dancing and improvising.
Music scores will be available, but we will learn in the traditional Paraguayan style by observation, listening, and hands-on.
Open to all levels except total beginners.
