Choro Music Ensemble Class
These ensemble classes for all instruments
will focus on the practice of several
topics in the choro repertoire:

Rhythm Patterns and Variations
We analyze and play on this class on the University Federal of Goiás in Brazil, a variety of music representing the main composers from the early 20th century to today, including Ernesto Nazareth, (1863 - 1934), Bonfligio de Oliveira, (1894 - 1940), Pixinguinha (1897-1973), Radamés Gnattali (1906-1988), Jacob do Bandolim (1918 - 1969), Waldir Azevedo (1923-1980) and Hamilton de Holanda (1976).
We also will consider a variety of rhythms used in the Choro genre, such as Maxixe, Baião, Choro, Samba-choro and Frevo.
This class is for all instruments.
