O Passo, a new approach to rhythm
The O Passo method is rhythmic teaching method and uses walking in order to gain and develop essential musical notions: the beat, listening, being autonomous… This method was inspired by popular musical practices of Brazil and created by Lucas Ciavatta in 1996. It uses our inherent natural movement to link body to music.
