I hold a B.A. in Piano Performance from the State University of Campinas (Brazil), a M.M. in Piano Performance & Pedagogy from The Pennsylvania State University (U.S.A.), and a D.M.A. Piano Performance & Pedagogy of the University of Oklahoma (U.S.A).

I received recognition as a talented pianist in various Brazilian national piano competitions and in solo recitals given throughout Brazil, Denmark, Switzerland, and the U.S.A.


Since 1991, I have been teaching students of a wide range of levels, ages, cultural

and social backgrounds. In Brazil I taught music theory and piano privately and at music schools to beginners of all ages, and

I prepared pre-college students for

auditions in undergraduate programs. In the United States I gathered extensive

experience teaching in collegiate settings

and have taught a variety of university

courses, including music theory, music

appreciation, applied and group piano.

A specialization in Music Physiology at the Zurich University of the Arts provided a solid basis to my previous research on prevention of injuries in musicians. Since 2014 I have been a committee member of the special interest group in Musician’s Health and Wellness at ISME (International Society of Music Education). In the last world conference I had the honor of being selected as Chair-Elect to begin in 2018.
