I’m a cellist, passionate about early childhood music education and the benefits of music to the development of the whole child.
I grew up in Brazil in a very musical family and have been playing music since I was nine years old. I have a special interest in traveling and have lived in different countries to further my studies.
In Spain, I had the opportunity to study at the Irun Music Conservatorium with a great teacher, Iñaki Etxepare, who taught me not just the cello technique but how important is our role as cello teachers for the young generations.
Since then, I have dedicated my life to teaching and have taken continuous training by the Suzuki Method in the United Kingdom, United States, Brazil, Peru and Australia.
I love to play and perform, and I’m a cellist at the Northern Beaches Symphony Orchestra.

“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.” Shinichi Suzuki
