When I was 16 years old, I attended a pop music concert and the band had a cello. Hearing that beautiful and deep sound paralyzed me. I was delighted and knew from that moment that I wanted to start taking lessons, learn how to play, and become a cellist. It was love at first sight!
I'm from Portugal. I was pursuing a DMA in cello performance and I did a minor degree in cello pedagogy. I have been teaching for around 12 years (students of all ages and levels).
