 During that time, i held music improvement workshops with pianists such as Inga Dsekster or Tânia Achot.
 At the age of 15 i made my first composition for solo piano, two years later was performed my first concert presenting unpublished works of my own.
I started my activity as a teacher in music education in 2006, teaching until the present, in colleges, academies, senior universities, institutions and schools of
Studied composition with Fernando Lapa and continue to develop studies and research in this area until the present.

I´m developing a multidisciplinary project with works of my own, combining music, dance, theater and literature.

The student must feel comfortable, however, dedicated and motivated to add value in learning.
We all have different paces and learning needs. Achieving these needs, through appropriately individual processes, is an asset for a correct pedagogy, and for the student to feel motivated and with a constant desire to evolve.

My teaching method is essentially pragmatic, based on offering a comprehensive knowledge of music theory, musical culture and music history as a complement to the instrument.
