Please Note: You must contact César by email at cesmus32_1960@swcp.com (or email Outpost staff at: mail@outpostspace.org) before signing up for this class as there are specific prerequisites for each class.

In this class, participants will learn about the elements that make up Latin music, including chord progressions, improvisation, Latin rhythms, Blues, 2-5-1 and rhythm changes, rhythmic exercises, improvisation lines (riffs) and more. It is required that you email César Bauvallet at cesmus32_1960@swcp.com before signing up for this class. This is an ensemble class for which César writes and arranges all the music ahead of time based on the instrumentation of the participants. He will also need to know your instrument and level of playing.

In keeping with the CoVid Safe policies of the Outpost Performance Space, masks must be worn by all who can do so and still play their instruments (i.e. drummers, bass players, keyboard players, etc). We are no longer requiring proof of vaccination or negative PCR test to participate in the in-person classes.  We will continue to make an effort to maximize the distance between participants in the in-person classes!

Originally from Cuba, César Bauvallet has been a music educator and professional performer for more than 30 years as well as a renowned trombonist, percussionist (congas, bongos, timbales, batá drums, as well as drumset and hand percussion), singer, composer, arranger and bandleader. He is most widely known here in New Mexico as the leader of the popular 9-piece Salsa band, Son Como Son.
