Brazilian guitar - The Right hand approach of Baden Powell and Toquinho (SHORT-TERM lessons)

Baden Powell and Toquinho are two of the most important guitar legends in the Brazilian music history.
Together with Vinicius de Moraes, Tom Jobim, João Gilberto, Edu Lobo, Chico Buarque, João Bosco, Elis Regina, etc. They made the history of Brazilian music.

In this short-term lesson,
I will focus on the right hand approach of the great Baden Powell and Toquinho.

Baden's right hand technique has always been discussed that it was too mysterious.
If you go on YouTube to check any Cover version or even Transcription of his tunes, you will never see someone who can reproduce his technique. It's simply because it is very complicated if you don't know the principle.
By directly studying from Baden's only student, his son - the great Marcel Powell. I'm approved by Marcel, and would love to share his father approach.

Toquinho right hand technique for comping
After the death of Vinicius de Moares, Toquinho gradually changed the way of his accompanying into a style which involved an exclusive approach of one finger strumming.
It has become almost the only approach he is using nowadays. It is also a very exclusive technique you rarely see other use except Toquinho.


*Note that. There are many other ways to play Brazilian music.

About Me

Hi there, I'm Joy from the Jazz guitar department of the Royal conservatory of the Hague!
I teach guitar and music theory (General and Jazz).
Jazz and Brazilian guitar are the main focuses in my professional field. But I do love all other kinds of music too.

My Jazz guitar approach mostly comes from the time that I studied in the conservatory with the Dutch Jazz guitar giant Martijn van Iterson and Wim Bronnenberg. Plus the approach I invented myself throughout the years.

My Brazilian guitar approach mostly come from the great Brazilian guitar legends Baden Powell and Toquinho. Baden only had one student in his entire life, his son - Marcel Powell. And I got the Baden's secret right hand approach directly from Marcel by studying with him.

If you are interested in Jazz guitar. Or Brazilian guitar, especially wanna know the technique of Baden Powell and Toquinho.
Feel free to contact me!

Classical Guitar, Mandolin, Music theory lessons by enthusiastic tutor and performer
Enthusiastic guitar tutor and performer. I started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and my formal musical education begun at the age of 9 when I started attending a music school in Croatia. After 6 years of primary school I continued studying classical guitar at secondary music school in Varazdin, Croatia. During that period I received training in classical harmony, Counterpoint (polyphony), Solfeggio, Music history and gained plenty experience at orchestral playing and choral singing. I decided to continue my musical education in Manchester where I was studying undergraduate degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and currently I am studying at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. As a performing guitarist, I have successfully participated and won prizes in a number of international competitions in the UK, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Hercegovina. Although my studies are primarily related to classical music, I am comfortable playing and performing music in a range of other styles and genres. I am also experienced with mandolin and Croatian folk instrument called tamburitza.

I teach in English or in Greek. I am half Greek and half Scottish and I have been living in the Netherlands for the last 4 years. I offer lessons in all styles, to all age groups, and for any experience level (ranging from students who have never touched a guitar before, up to advanced players who are looking for new challenges). Face to face lessons are preferable, but I also teach online. I am a patient and open minded teacher, and my desire is to help you learn what you want to learn, and make sure you have fun with playing the guitar and nurture your curiosity and excitement about the world of music creation ! My Credentials: I hold a Bachelors of Music degree from Birmingham Conservatoire (UK), and a Masters of Music from The Hague Royal Conservatory. My experience as a guitarist ranges from classical guitar studies, to playing electric guitar in rock bands, as well as experience as an improviser, performer of notated contemporary classical compositions, creator and performer of ambient and electronic music. I also am very experienced in ambient and electronic-influenced guitar music, which has given me an in depth knowledge also of the guitar in combination with technology such as guitar effects, computer software and multichannel setups which expand the audio palette of the guitar.

You bring me the music you like and the things you want to learn, and I build my lessons around that. I've taught students everything from post-rock, to metal, to K-Pop to Nepalese songs... This way the student gets to explore music on their terms, and not based on a pre-decided set of songs or exercises. Alongside this I bring exercises and other songs that help build around the skills we learn through your songs, and help you develop the techniques needed for you to learn to play the music you love. Whatever music excites you I encourage you to bring it to our lesson, as this also gives me a chance to discover some new music ! What's more, depending on your interest, we can also explore music theory, ideas on composition and songwriting, even the basics of how to record your own songs at home. For experienced players: If you are an experienced player looking for new challenges and new perspectives, my wide ranging knowledge of music in a large spectrum of music will help you push your playing and knowledge of music into new worlds !
