Hailing from Brazil, Flavio Lira is based in New York City.

Very active and eclectic, musical styles have never been a restriction for him, and since the beginning, he has performed with groups ranging from Popular Samba to Classical Chamber Music.​

“Regardless of style, if there are great musicians on stage, I’m happy to be there!”

In 2013, Flavio moved to Boston, and during this stage of his journey, Flavio Lira kept developing the passion for his own musical roots, as well as working with different musical traditions of the world, such as Jazz, Caribbean music and others.

Now in New York, Flavio Lira is able to fully employ his versatility as a musician, collaborating with different artists and performing in prestigious venues such as the Blue Note.​

As part of his most recent project, Flavio Lira is releasing the album Coffee Gold Sugar Cane, a rhythmic fusion of Brazilian grooves, Cuban clave, Colombian folkloric and jazzy chords.

I love teaching the concepts and letting the student develop their own way from them.

We also practice songs and transcriptions which are always important to learn the language of each style.

Reviews of lessons with Flavio Lira

My last lesson, but not the last connection with a wonderful man and musician. Thanks to you I came to love actually playing the bass, not only desiring it or just listening to it. A musician with not just a technique--with which you enriched my playing this instrument, but also a beautiful soul, which made me endure and overcome the difficulties playing it.

Flavio continues to amaze me as a teacher and an exceptional bass player. I have been his student now for almost 4 months, with many more ahead. Musically a splendid experience. Highly recommend him.

I wanted to work on improving my Latin music time/groove/pocket with Flavio. This is pretty subtle stuff, but Flavio had several concrete suggestions. Good stuff!

Music and listening go hand in hand and a music teacher who can also listen to his students in addition to skillful handling of his instrument, that is a blessing.
