Born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, I started my musical studies on the piano when I were 13. Soon I would discover the existence of NEOJIBA (State Orchestras and Choirs of the State of Bahia) and decided to sign up for the project starting my Harp studies with Mariana Tudor and Cecília Pacheco. After some years of study, I became the head of the main Orchestra of the Project, the Bahia’s Youth Orchestra, for which I participated in national and international tours on 3 continents, performing in renowned Concert Halls across Europe, Brazil and the United States.
I have concert experience with OSBA (Bahia Symphonic Orchestra), OSP (Paraná Symphonic Orchestra) and the Orchestra of Conductors of Jacobs. Also, I had masterclasses with World Class Harpists like Maria Luiza Rayan, Baltazar Juarez, Gianetta Baril, Susan McDonald, Kathy Kienzle and Sasha Boldachev.
In 2014 I start my studies in Electrical Engineering at UFBA (Federal University of Bahia) and kept my Harp studies until I’ve decided on the path of music and started planning my trip abroad to continue my studies. I began my journey abroad in the USA, where I earned my Performer Diploma from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in Bloomington with Professor Florence Sitruk. In 2020 I’ve started my training at the Lyon & Healy / Salvi’s harp factory in Chicago where, by it’s end, I join the Lyon & Healy/Salvi Technician Guild.
