The Brazilian Virtual Choir Lab - 2022

The Brazilian Virtual Choir Lab is a Latin vocal course designed by Mi La Musica School, located in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil and hosted in Australia by Great Southern A Cappella founder and choir director Diana May Clark.

The course is live from Rio de Janeiro and will teach students how to sing Brazilian jazz standards such as The Girl from Ipanema, Corcovado, Samba do Avião, Summer Samba, Aquarela do Brasil (Brazil), among many others. Students will learn the original lyrics in Portuguese, the history of the compositions and music styles direct from the source in Brazil.

The Final Project will culminate in the production of a video recording of the choir.

Course duration is 10 weeks with a break for one week after class 5. The first five weeks are a more intensive 90 mins class length where students dive deep into learning the song for the virtual choir video project and record the audio. After the audio is recorded students will focus on filming the video; then the last 5 classes are at a more relaxed and social pace singing through songs and immersing in all things 'musica brasileira' for 75 minutes.

All classes are recorded (zoom) so if you miss one you can watch it later & catch up.

This course is for amateur and professional musicians alike, music lovers, teachers, choir conductors, vocalists and instrumental music students who want access to enjoying, understanding and feeling confident about sharing and performing Brazilian music!
