I have been lucky and honored to study and/or perform with great musicians, teachers and human beings, with whom I have learned a great deal about music. I also had the opportunity to have an academic education at the National School of Music (France) and Berklee College of Music (USA).

i just want to thank you for the lessons you gave me, they were very good and I'm taking with me more than what I expected. You are a great teacher and a great musician and it was a pleasure and an honor to work with you. I hope we can keep in touch and that this is just the beginning. I will keep on practicing and let you know when I will be going back to NYC.
