My name is Lígia Silva and I'm a flutist and saxophonist. I studied classical flute and jazz saxophone in  ESMAE (Porto, Portugal) where I got both degrees.  Later did a Master degree in musical teaching, specialized in flute teaching in UA (University of Aveiro, Portugal). I've also studied in Antwerp Conservatorium, under the ERASMUS programm.  At this moment I alternate between both instruments in classical and jazz projects.

I've also started composing my own songs as you can see in my recent videos. That has been a new exciting world!

You can check videos and projects at www.ligiaborgessilva.wordpress.com

My main language is portuguese but I'm fluent in english. 

I've been working mainly as a flute teacher for the past 9 years.  I teach mainly young kids from ages between 7 and 18, in a public school, specialized in music. I'm able to teach flute to complete begginers and intermediates. My major project in my Master degree was about adult development and flute teaching to adults, so I'd be happy to teach students of any age. I'm also flexible in concern of repertoire and personal expectations of each student. Classical, jazz, pop, world music... I believe the student is the one who chooses his way . The theacher should facilitate that way, while still offering challenges and showing new possibilities.

As a saxophone teacher, my experience is limited to the last 3 years, mainly in the jazz genre, in private lesson regim. I'm confortable teaching saxphone to begginers, at any age, both classical or jazz music.

Teacher was great working with a beginner. Patient and thorough in her descriptions for embouchure technique for good sound flow, teaching music notes, scales and musical counts.
