Learn piano with a teacher who has a huge experience with piano professors around the world
My experience having lessons with a lot of professors gave me a unique vision of piano pedagogy. Besides that, I teach piano since I was 16 years old and worked in great Music Schools in Brazil, having students of all ages with different levels. The piano study can be very fun if you have the right professor!

Samuel was granted several scholarships during his undergraduate as a collaborative pianist and also had the opportunity to be an assistant researcher on piano pedagogy under Dr. Tarcísio Gomes Filho advisement.

In the XXI Eleazar de Carvalho Festival, he stood out as a piano student and was invited by the pianist Paul Rutman to participate in the XXIII Eleazar de Carvalho Week, held at concert hall Sala São Paulo, as a guest student. In 2020, Samuel met Professor Dr. Diego Caetano and in 2021 was accepted with a full scholarship to attend the master’s degree at Sam Houston State University (Houston, TX).
