I am an active pianist and percussionist, having graduated from Berklee College of Music, where I studied Performance and Film Scoring. At Berklee, I received the Berklee Outstanding Scholar Award and the Berklee Achievement Scholarship.
I have an extensive background in jazz, pop/rock, and Latin music, and I have been teaching children and adults from different backgrounds in the many different countries I've lived in.

My teaching style is based on making the student feel comfortable.

In the end, the student gets a thorough music education but they never feel overwhelmed.

· Piano · A great and worthwhile experience.
Piano lessons with Joao Martins have been excellent. Joao is very patient and thorough when explaining things and puts a lot of effort into tailoring the lessons to suit my interests and ability. He is great at fostering a relaxed learning environment. On top of this, he is very knowledgeable about different types of music, music theory, and technique. I highly recommend Joao as a music teacher.
