I am originally fro Brazil and I came to the USA about 5 years ago. I am fluent in Portuguese and English and I have some knowledge of Spanish. Currently I am pursuing my MM in instrumental conducting at Texas Tech, and before that I completed my MA in Piano performance at FAU where I also taught class piano and accompanied several instruments and singers.
I love teaching. It is a pleasure for me to pass knowledge and help others to learn not only how to play but also about music in general, and most of all, share my pleasure and love for music.
