Workshop details: A two-hour workshop where participants will learn the rudiments of Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation, as well as how to sing up to 10 Brazilian songs. This workshop is open to people of all age groups, and knowledge of Portuguese is not necessary. Luiz will start by teaching the basics of Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation, with emphasis on the pronunciation of vowels and the irregular pronunciation of some of the consonants. He will then play and sing a simple well-known Brazilian song at the keyboard and will explain in detail how to pronounce the words and sing the melody lines. He will also give both the literal and general meaning of the songs lyrics. Participants will be encouraged to sing along. He will proceed by playing and singing other songs as time allows.
