UNIT I - Foundation

In this UNIT you'll learn the core aspects of a Pandeiro technique that allows you to play anything you want. Through our hands-on approach you'll learn the Samba / Choro and Baião rhythms and understand the power of this technique.

  • Lesson 1 (13 min): You will learn the the most efficient posture to get the best sound.

  • Lesson 2 (17 min): We introduce the Samba rhythm step-by-step until we get to a professional level Samba/Choro pattern.

  • Lesson 3 (10 min): We focus on the Baião rhythm that is part of the Forró parties and comes from the Northeast of Brasil.

  • Lesson 4 (6 min): Using the rhythms we learned in the lessons above we summarize the whole power of the technique and why it will allow you to express any kind of rhythmic pattern.
