I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Brazil. I started to play the piano when I was seven years old and my beloved piano teacher inspired and motivated me to continue my studies of classical piano and voice which I did at the Saint Cecile Conservatory of Music in the State of San Paulo, Brazil. Later I started to explore other styles of music like Pop, Folk and Latin music. I used to end my classical recitals with an exciting piece of Brazilian music. I love performing in weddings and special events and sing in my church choir as a mezzo soprano. I am a music teacher with 30 years of experience in private piano and voice lessons, teaching and inspiring numerous students of all ages and levels. I speak English, Portuguese, Spanish and basic Russian. My goal is to keep inspiring and motivating students with creative teaching skills and to instill in them the love of music to last a lifetime!
