Professional Guitarist, Music Producer, Music Instructor
Professional Musician, guitarist music producer and instructor, located in Vancouver, BC.
I have more than 20 years of experience of teaching, and I've been playing on stage since I was thirteen years old. I've been playing guitar and making music for so long and doing it in so many different scenarios, that my experience gives my approach a very unique identity.
Born and raised in Brazil, where music is part of the day-by-day culture, I went to music university where I took a Music Producer program. Later on I moved to Canada where I took my Professional Program certificate. Course that usually takes four years to finish, but I did it in one.
I was alway into music, at church, at rock and blues bands, as hired gun for a few other bands or just for a gig in studio. I always looked to learn more and more, with the best available where I was and with whatever I could afford.
I really think you will like my approach in my courses. They are to the point, easy to grasp and easy to apply.
