Hi everybody! I have been playing the guitar ever since I was a child. I also lived in a lot of different cities growing up so whichever new city I moved to my guitar came with me! While in high school, I performed in the band for various musicals, the jazz band and at an opening ceremony at the UNESCO in Paris. I studied classical guitar at l'Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, however I obtained my bachelor's degree in musicology from the University of Strasbourg and the Conservatory of Strasbourg where I studied classical and flamenco guitar. Throughout the years I have performed and taught students of various ages and levels in various cities such as Paris, Strasbourg, Buenos Aires and now New York!
