Master BOSSA NOVA Harmony & Rhythm
What you'll learn
- To play or compose in any musical style related to Bossa Nova.
- Some basic experience with electric or acoustic guitar
Hello and welcome! I am Marcel leal, a Brazilian guitar teacher and Phd and would like to present you the "Master BOSSA NOVA harmony and rhythm" course.
Over the years, performing and teaching in other countries I’ve noticed that many of my non-Brazilian students and even musician friends had a kind of a block when performing Brazilian rhythms and harmony on guitar. So, I have developed this course where I address this difficulty through very practical and musical lessons.
This course is composed of ten lessons in video, text and written music (score and tablature). The lessons are based on songs I wrote in order to specifically address the difficulties that I detected in my experience watching other people play Bossa Nova. Since the lessons have been thought as real songs, what you get is a music material that is at the same time instructional AND artistic! Even though the material IS educational the music you’ll learn in the lessons by no means sound like technical exercises, it’s MUSIC!
For making it easy for you, every lesson will be presented in a very relaxed way, making use of text, videos and written music (sheet music and tablature).
As a bonus, I’ve written two complete songs specially for the course and will offer to you in video and written music.
Thank you very much for your interest and I’m really sure that this course will be of great value to you, I have put much love and effort making it!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wishes to play Brazilian Bossa Nova rhythms and chords properly.
Music teacher and music producer and performer since the early 90's, I have a PhD degree in Music/Electric Guitar at Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP).
Both as a musician and as a teacher, I always worked in a very broad range of music genres and styles: from blues to electronic music, from bossa nova to rock, from ethnic music to country.
My purpose as a music teacher is to pass the most important foundations of the basic principles of every subject in order to empower the student use this knowledge according to their own understanding, making them real owners of their own musical processes and expand their musical freedom and creativity.
