LEADING MÚSICA DO CÍRCULO

Classes in English

LEADING MÚSICA DO CÍRCULO is a program for musicians and students that want to lead collaborative and collective musical practices based on voice, body, play, improvisation and human relations, finding their own particular way of leading the circle.

 

This course offers you the opportunity to:


  • Have tools that allow you to create music with any group of people in the most different contexts.


  • Develop your relationship with your musicality through improvisation, the incorporation of music in your body and a constantly deeper listening of yourself, the other and the whole.

  • Expand your vision on music and human relations, understanding music as a wide-ranging and transformative phenomena of the human experience, an experience that always happens in relationship.

  • Get to know techniques, activities and approaches that can be applied both in musical contexts and in groups of "non-musicians".

 
 

OVERVIEW OF THE COURSE

 

MODULES

3 online modules + 1 in-person immersive module

 

PRACTICE GROUP

From module II onward it is important for participants to have an in-person practice group (weekly or bi-weekly) to put in practice the activities shared throughout the course.

CONTENT

The course has extensive material in PDF on the subjects discussed, also videos with homework for the week, feedback moments for the participants, suggestions for more advanced studies and much more.
But the planning can also change since the course is alive and based on the direct relation with people, following the same principles of listening, flexibility and fluidity that orient our musical gatherings.

DATES

The dates scheduled for the next modules will always be confirmed on the end of the previous module.
