Pedro Couto - Music Theory and Harmony Classes - Learn with a professional musician!

Methodology

I base my classes in the tools the students need to understand and interpret music. For that, we are going to study a wide palette of materials, books, essays, a variety thesis and music, a LOT of music. We will listening to a lot of music, developing analytic ears, then see how the music it translates itself to theory, through analysing the pieces.

Background

Hi! I'm offering lessons via zoom/skype with high quality image and sound. I've studied at UDESC (Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina) where I started tutoring college level students in Harmony and music theory and I also went to Berklee College of Music through a scholarship, where I worked as a session musician both for the piano department and the project band. I have been a professional musician since I was 15 years old, doing many gigs, shows, recording sessions.

Pedro's resume

Guitarist, started playing gigs in Florianópolis at the age of 15 in the genres of blues and rock'n’roll.
Pedro was part of the Mauro Albert group, along with Rafael Calegari and Gabriel Vieira, with whom he played at several jazz festivals such as Jurerê Jazz, Do Monte Jazz Festival and Floripa Jazz in addition to theaters and concert halls in Florianópolis, Porto Alegre and São Paulo, also playing with artists like Gabriel Fortunato and Guinha Ramires.
Between 2018 and 2019, he entered the Music Education program at UDESC, where he played as a guitarist of the university Big Band and was the music theory and Harmony tutor, helping to teach college level students.
Together with Fernando Campos Caramori, Vinicius Lisieux and João Peters, he formed the Quartet Manouchada. The group is dedicated to the tradition of Gypsy Jazz with influences from Brazilian music and Avant-Garde Jazz.
In 2019, Pedro went to Berklee College of Music through a scholarship, moving to Boston. There he studied with Mick Goodrick, worked at the Project Band and was also hired as a guitarist for the college's piano department.
Actually, Pedro keeps himself busy doing a research for UDESC on the transformation of Brazilian popular music, giving lessons, playing in the local scene, preparing for a new record and recording. Also started a new collaboration with the Brazilian guitarist Tom Cykman, in a guitar duo devoted to the tradition of jazz-influenced Brazilian music.
