BIO

MUSIC EDUCATION

It all starts with an innocent acoustic guitar, some lessons with a neighbor and some guitar based CDs.

After some time, you are playing 8 hours a day, have joined 4 local bands and never again experience silence…and you like it!!!

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and live now in Stockholm, Sweden. As a teenager, I’ve been through well structured music studying. Attended one of the biggest Music Schools of Sao Paulo and went directly to Music University, where I got exposed to amazingly different musical ideas, concepts and techniques. During University, I studied GUITAR with Mozart Mello, one of the most important guitar teachers/players in Brazil.

As if it wasn’t enough I also attended the most influential music school at the time : CLAM, also in Sao Paulo. It is owned by the Zimbo Trio, a extraordinaire Jazz & Bossa Nova group, famous for its high quality skills and performances with the most proeminent artists in the country ( like Elis Regina for example ). CLAM is a Berklee partner and shares methodologies and material with the american music study reference.

At this school, besides me ; ) studied and worked great names of the music scene like Eliane Elias, Helio Delmiro, Heraldo do Monte, Nuno Mindelis, Sergio Carvalho and many more…I studied with the String Department Director – Conrado Paulino – simply one of the best musicians, composers and arrangers in the country having worked with great brazilian artists as Rosa Passos and Alaide Costa among others.

After many years, I was invited to teach guitar at CLAM, and proudly worked as part of the Guitar Department for over 5 years, having the chanced to meet and play with many awesome musicians like Amilton Godoy, Fernando Mota, Percio Sapia, Debora Picarelli, Rubens Barsotti e Luiz Chaves.

Nowadays I use my self-developed teaching method, with the best and most efficient musical subjects from Music Universities,  highly referenced music schools and all my personal experience as a musician and teacher in Brazil.

WORKS AND EXPERIENCES

Differently from other careers, you don’t have to wait to finish school to start working with music…In fact, playing live is the most effective way of learning. The second one is recording. It forces you to define and refine your skills, your taste, accuracy, tone and creativity…

Add to that some serious studying, from theoretical musical subjects to instrument lessons and group practicing – and there you have it !

At the point I decided to be a professional musician, I set my target to play with many different musical projects as possible. And it became a real pleasure to do it. Nowadays, it feels great to be able to perform with such a wide variety of musical styles.

Here are some examples of artists or bands I worked/work with:

STUDIO TIME

As a partner in a Production Studio called AudioArt in Brazil, with 2 other great musicians/producers, I’ve had the opportunity to create, record, produce and design music for artists, radio, TV and multimedia. The portfolio includes Commercial Works for large companies, Cds for several artists and Soundtracks for Theater. There I also developed my knowledge of music softwares, digital audio, mixing and audio design. In the music page you can listen to some examples and read more about each project.
