Professional violinist and singer located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I hold a master's degree in violin performance. Recording, live music.

Experience playing violin: 18 years Experience playing orchestras: 7 years Education: Master of Music - Violin Performance at the University of Ottawa, and a Bachelor in Music - violin in performance. Styles: Furthermore, my work focus on playing classical and traditional western music repertoire, as well as pieces that bring elements from folk, indigenous, and/or pop music from the 20th or 21st Century, such as Brazilian jazz and MPB. I also perform songs from the '20s, tango, 40' and 50' (such as Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley's songs), and other pop songs (Michael Bubble, Celine Dion, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, etc). I am often invited to perform in theatres, retirement homes, churches, private events, and orchestras.

5 out of 5

Your music together was so incredible and I loved listening to you both and can’t thank you both enough. For my life I learned to play the piano but never learned the violin and always thought I wanted to if I were to learn another instrument. My Dad used to play the violin. I’m just so grateful I can at least play one instrument 🎶 🎼 a place to go to anytime and enjoy and so satisfying. You both made my day so much. I’m glad you both get to enjoy having a life and experiencing being so talented in music. So many thanks
