Why I Work Well with Kids

I believe I work well with kids because I love being around them and I love being able to somehow be part of their development. I found one of the most fun and unique ways to do this is through music. I am also an extremely patient person and very curious to meet the best options for each student to reach their level of performance. I find the challenge of working with children each day to be one of my greatest motivators. It just makes me happy.

Most Influential Bands / Musicians

Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, J. S. Bach, Vinicius de Morais, The Beatles, F. Chopin, Sigur Rós and much more.


I love living and always discovering new things. I am open every day for walks, movies, books, talks, jamming, sleeping, practicing piano and eating yummy food.
