After being based in Europe for all my life, I recently decided to relocate from Lisbon, Portugal – my home country – to Sydney.

I have worked as a soloist, chamber musician or orchestral musician in most European countries and played in the most prestigious halls, like: Musiverein (Vienna), Elbphilharmonie (Hamburg), Concertgebouw (The Netherlands), Palau de la Música (Barcelona).

As an orchestral player I have been a member of the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester (Vienna) and Cascais Chamber Orchestra (Portugal), but also performed as a guest with: Staatskapelle Dresden, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Gulbenkian Orchestra and Portuguese Symphony Orchestra.

I am graduate of Haute École de Musique, Geneva (Master in Specialized Arts), Royal Conservatory of Brussels (Master in Music) and Lisbon’s Music University (Bachelor of Music Performance).

Teaching Info

Current flute teacher at Cranbrook School in Sydney


As a passionate teacher my goal is to work with every student individually and provide an approach which allows them to grow as musicians and flute players.

With more than 10 years of experience as a teacher and performer my focus when working with students is: motivation, body awareness, sound, musicality, technical ability and performance.

Lessons are adapted to every student from beginner to post-graduate and they can go from half an hour to two hours.

I have given masterclasses and taught privately extensively over the last 10 years in several countries, like: Switzerland, Belgium, Portugal and Australia.
