We were so fortunate to host Brazilian guitarist, arranger, and composer Bruno Mangueira in our masterclass last Wednesday. Bruno demonstrated the difference between Samba and Bossa Nova styles, inviting students to workshop comping and melody phrasing on standards. Even director Dave Pietro joined in!
