"I have been a teacher all my life. I started teaching the piano when I was 17 and then I started Conducting Choirs.Most of my studies were undertaken in France and I developed there a career in Choir Conducting, having conducted over 30 choirs at Ecole Nationale de Musique de Bourg la Reine and as a conductor assistant for Maitrise Notre Dame de Paris. Back in Brazil I entered the Municipal Theatre in Sao Paulo as a soprano, where I stayed for 7 years whilst teaching singing and piano and participating in other music ensembles in Brazil as a choir singer and soloist.

I have been in the UK for 4 years where I developed a very successful singing class in Brixham ACL with group lessons and a lady's choir. This work will continue over St Paul's Church in Preston, Paignton as part of Bay Music School.

I teach singing since an early age: 5 years old for group lessons and 8 years old for private singing lessons. All ages and levels are welcome. I also prepare students for the Associated Board Exams.
