I studied at the Schubert Musical Academy in Brazil and received a teacher's certificate upon graduating. I also have a BA in Piano Pedagogy and Piano Performance from Seattle Pacific University where I was the recipient of the President's Citation Award ('97).
I have been a church pianist and an accompanist for choirs, vocal and instrumental soloists. I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since I was twelve. I currently teach private piano in my home studio in Farmington, MN.
