What to Expect
A very professional and talented cellist, enjoyable music, different varieties of music, someone who can adjust to their music style preferences.
I was born and raise in Venezuela, I have been playing the cello since I was nine years old and I can say that I have enjoyed every second of it, Meanly because I have a big passion for music and cello, I also have always loved performing any kind of music.
I studied cello in the Simón Bolívar Conservatory for three years. One of the most important moments of my life was when I moved out to the U.S in 2015, since then I have received master classes with teachers from UCF, FIA, and Stetson University. Also I was selected to participate in three masterclasses at Stetson during the cello candidate search.
I have been lucky to live all these experiences, specially coming from such an small country, but I am proud to be here where I am and continue my studies to be a top cellist and a good example for the next generation.
