Greetings from Boca Raton

Post by mfarias » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:52 pm

Hi All

I'm a Brazilian expat living in Boca Raton, FL. I'm 37 now and have been playing since I was 13.

In my late teens / early twenties I've studied with two teachers who taught me mostly Brazilian and South American repertoire, including choros, sambas and milongas. When I started college, I chose to pursue a career in Computer Science as I would probably starve trying to make a living as a musician.

Last year, after attending a concert of my countryman Yamandu Costa, I felt the urge of playing again. In December I performed with my daughter's school choir by invitation of her teacher and I felt like a teenager being on stage again. Got myself a Kremona Solea this Christmas, an upgrade compared to my old Di Giorgio Tarrega.
