DescriptionBrazilian choro, an entirely instrumental genre originating in Rio de Janeiro in the 1870s has become a national musical language for Brazilian instrumentalists across genres. In this class we will spend a good portion learning the various grooves and rhythms which make up Choro, Samba, Forró and other Brazilian genres. We will learn a choro and learn how to stylize it as a Brazilian musician might: which ornaments to use and where, how to interpret the tune, and how to improvise within the tune.
