Lessons

Would you like to develop your musicianship and improve on your instrument, in a an efficient and enjoyable way?
The joy of music is the best part on what we do as musicians.
In my lessons, you can go straight into the topics you’re more interested, and can apply them to your music right away.
By employing several didactic devices, you have the chance to see, listen and absorb every detail of what is being approached, and play it the way it’s most comfortable for you, so you can learn step by step.
No matter what is the style you want to play, Brazilian music, jazz, rock, blues, and so on, you can chose what to study.
It’s important you concentrate on learning the things you really like to play, and balance that with the remaining things you need to learn.
That makes the learning process more enjoyable, not an effort you just can’t wait to finish. That will keep you motivated.

Some of the topics I cover in my lessons:

– Chords, harmonic progressions and how they occur in the repertoire
– Scales, their subsets and their relation to harmony
