Mainly Jazz player. Also teach bow technique and pop and jazz repertoire. Very strong theory and ear training teacher. Also Improvisation teacher.
My classes are very flexible when it comes to what the student wants. I can go from just teaching very basic bass playing to advanced harmonic concepts and jazz improvisation. On the first class, I give the student the choice of controlling our lessons materials about what they want to learn. Or the student can choose to let me control our classes, in which I will bring my own materials and ideas in which we should work and will go through the whole academic process of learning music.

Marcelo is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. I `ve been taking theory classes with him and it is great. He has a very good methodology and will make everything very clear.
