Bio

I started playing guitar hen I was 14, was self taught until my 20’s when I started my guitar course at the GIT in Sao PAulo, where I’ve graduated before going to JAzz School at the Uni Fiaam Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I worked in Dubai as a session guitarist for 2 years.

In Auckland I’ve taught children at several primary schools, several adults and teens in my private teaching, I teach in a nice and professional studio which provides the students with the right atmosphere for learning.

I’m highly experienced in the music industry, teaching as well as performing on stage internationally, touring, releasing albums and recording. I believe that professional experiences, consolidating values and abilities such as teamwork, interpersonal relationships, customer service and attention to detail, can be passed on to students, for a more effective style of teaching molded to the student’s needs.
