The stylistic focus during these guitar classes will be on popular Brazilian music as well as on other musical styles that Osman is familiar with. (such as reggae, blues, afoxé,..) These different styles will be explored through th use of two instruments. The cavaquinho (small guitar, also known as a “Brazilian Ukelele”) and on the acoustic guitar, Brazilian style. There is no specific knowledge of music theory necessary, although it may come in handy. If you do not have a cavaquinho at your disposal, feel free to contact the teacher. Or if you have an ukulele, you can always tune it as a cavaquinho.
