Teaching Approach and Lesson Topics:
I believe in music as tool of empowerment and transformation, as well as a way of having fun and learning about other cultures and experiences. No matter if you are a beginner or a pro, you will develop and improve your sense of rhythm and technique, by learning different rhythms from around the world. As a percussionist, I love using the body to teach, playing body percussion games, in order to internalize rhythm and learn faster.
Either on drums or percussion instruments, we will work on:
- Drums set ups and posture;
- Subdivision and rudiments;
- Rhythms from around the world (I’m specialized in Brazilian rhythms, such as maracatu, forró, frevo, samba, coco, ciranda, etc);
- Reading music.
I have more than 17 years as a professional musician: drummer, percussionist, guitar player, singer/songwriter, educator; more than 12 years of teaching experience in world percussion (specially Brazilian Percussion), drums, and music iniciation.
I hold a Teaching Degree in Music (2009) and a Graduate Degree in Music Therapy (2017), and many years of training in music schools and conservatories.
