“Scott has crafted an online learning experience that is inspiring, fun and informative”.
After a long period trying to learn pandeiro on a piecemeal basis, I joined the online Pandeiro Academy with Scott Kettner. The course and live workshops have given me a much more logical and musical approach to playing the instrument. Besides breaking down the techniques necessary to get the proper sounds, he’s also shown how Brazilian forms can be tied into Latin and North American rhythms. The online method for displaying scores, graphic info, music samples, and playing techniques is also much better than I’ve experienced on other online sites. I’d recommend this course to anyone ready to tackle this challenging instrument.
