- Music Appreciation
- Music Theory (Beginner-Intermediate)
I believe that when learning an instrument there has to be a musical reason for every technique learned and every exercise practiced.
With this in mind, I place a strong emphasis on learning music repertoire that caters to the students personal preference. I enjoy linking musical theory concepts with practical examples whenever possible so as to make the learning of writing and reading music seamless and enjoyable.
For advanced students I am ready to explore as much territory as the student would like to cover. This can be anything from transcriptions, technique studies, to incorporating musical concepts, developing their own vocabulary and overall, taking their playing to the next level.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Performance from the Lisbon University of Music (Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa).
I was born in Toronto and grew up in Portugal, where I have performed at the country’s top jazz venues as well as in its vibrant free jazz and improvised music scene. I have a passion for teaching as much as performing and have developed these skills hand in hand across my musical career. I have over 10 years of experience teaching students of all ages and skill levels. In my latest role as Drum Instructor for Oeiras International School I enjoyed working with students who spoke a diverse array of languages and successfully preparing them for Europe-wide music exams, college auditions and a variety of music performances.
