Egress Guitar of EMBAP

"EMBAP - Escola de Música e Belas Artes do Paraná, is the institution where I studied and taught. The Classical Guitar course at Embap was created by Jaime Zenamon in the 1970s and soon after, structured by Orlando Fraga who created the Graduate Course in Guitar, having as the first graduated student the composer and guitarist Chico Mello.
I figure out over the years, that many students who graduated at Embap (Graduation and Pos-Graduation), and now have solid careers in music, have produced works for guitar - egress students. This project was created to focus this production and provide information about these performers and composers. It was carried out thanks to the efforts of the students of musical performance (guitar), Pedro Weber and Victor Girardello at Embap Graduation. Here available links for the Master Classes that the composers taught and will teach. In addition, this page informs how to access the scores of the works for those who want to bring an unpredictable sonority to their repertoire. Not only established performers, also students beginners from Embap and other educational institutions in Brazil and abroad. They are 
Adailton Pupia, Aluísio Coelho, Chico Mello, Danilo Bogo, Eduardo Frigatti, Guilherme Campos, Leonardo Wilczek, Luciano Lima, Norton Dudeque, Rogério Budasz, Octávio Camargo, William Lentz, Rafaele Andrade e Tainá Caldeira" MARIO DA SILVA, April 2022
