I am a professional trumpet player and an experienced brass teacher. I moved to the UK in 2014 and have been working with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and have also performed as a soloist with the New Mozart Ensemble and the Verbier Chamber Orchestra in Switzerland. I graduated from the Juilliard School in New York in 2012 and spent one year with a contract with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra as assistant principal trumpet. I have also been a member of the Verbier Festival and Chamber Orchestras since 2012, touring with them all over Europe and Asia. As a teacher, my experiences have been diverse. I was the trumpet coach of the pre-college program at the Juilliard School during my time as a postgraduate student and have taught at workshops in Rio de Janeiro. I am currently the brass teacher at St George’s Ascot, a brass tutor for both Lambeth and Sutton music services, a brass coach for the Chineke Orchestra, and the sabbatical cover trumpet teacher at Wellington College. I also have several private pupils, all of whom have achieved high distinctions in both the ABRSM and Trinity exams they have taken. Having developed my playing from a young age within brass and wind bands, big bands, and symphony orchestras, I believe that ensemble playing has a huge importance on the development of young musicians, and the capacity to stimulate and motivate individuals onto fantastic achievements, musical and otherwise.
