      Bom dia! My name is Tamara and I am looking forward to these lessons. I am a classically trained guitarist but have not played regularly for many years. I have a deep connection with Brazilian music, and love the interplay of classical and popular in so much of the instrumental music there. I studied Portuguese, and lived in Rio for about 7 months as I wrote a dissertation on the choro revival of the 1970s and 80s in Brazil. While there I got to meet so many incredible musicians, including Raphael and Luciana Rabello, Mauricio Carrilho, Dino Sete Cordas, Jorge Sima, Marco and Sergio Pinna, Josimar Monteiro and many more! Yet I never really learned to play Brazilian guitar by ear and would love the ability to sing along and improvise.

      Hi Tamara, welcome to the community.
      It must have been amazing to write a dissertation about the choro revival. Is your dissertation available for reading? If so, feel free to put a link here. It would be great if you could share it with us.

      I really hope the lessons on the site can help you learn this style of guitar that is so special to me, and let me know at anytime if you need any help.

      Best,
      Renato.
