During the course of my studies and career I performed the trumpet, saxophones (soprano, alto and tenor) and flute. I also use the piano as my main instrument to compose. My experience as an instrumental performer range from chamber music to samba bands and jazz Big Band. 

 

Since 2012 I don't perform as an instrumentalist.
