About Candid L. B.

PhD in Music, International Musician, Expert and Scholar in Music Education, with modern methodologies to teach music (performance, creation, well-being) - in New York and ONLINE! TOP artistic training and experience, in high-quality studios in Times Square area, top equipment in class or ONLINE, cutting-edge techniques and training - combining arts, music, music history, concepts, composition. For all ages, make your musical experience a really valid one. I am a touring artist, with a career on piano and singing that you can find works and followers in every social network. I'm a Brazilian musician around 35 years old, based in NYC for a PhD Research in Music Composition, MASTER in Piano Performance and Singing, Professor at a University in Brazil and in the US, also Bachelor in Singing and Composition. I am also educated in multiple techniques, that I apply to my unique methodology. I combine elements of Linklater, Estill, Alexandre Technique, Feldenkrais, GDS; I am certified under the Somatic Voicework Technique and I am becoming a designated LInklater technique instructor soon (5 years education in NYC). The combination of this technique allows me to work from a body/emotional perspective to approach music. Through the last 20 years of performing and teaching, I created a unique program that approaches music in a holistic way. I approach a cross-technique between piano-singing-composition and a cross-genre repertoire, that (finally) includes folk music from multiple cultures. Deeply grounded in studies of music, the student receives a program to be created collectively with me during classes, including syllabus, methods for assessment, coaching and opportunities for performance and recording. I am very experienced leading classes of piano and Jazz/pop singing, songwriting, for kids and adults. I have a huge repertoire of classical music, pop, musical theater, Brazilian and Latin songs. Also, the practice can include harmony studies, ear training, improvisation, and composition. The main concept of my methodology is about using creativity, technology, and good music to make the students feel inspired and motivated to play the songs they want and develop skills. I teach in English, Portuguese or Spanish. I've been teaching beginners and advanced students. I coach professional musicians, applying for auditions, releasing new works or developing their careers - especially in New York. My students include kids to successful musicians. Check my reviews, please.
