Bassoonist, teacher

Switzerland

“I’m a professional bassoonist and bassoon teacher from Portugal, currently working in Switzerland, where I often play in the orchestra pit of the Zurich opera. I noticed Living Opera a while ago and at first I started following because I’m a big opera fan and was curious, but ended up staying and engaging with Soula and Norman because, besides the quality technical content for singers, (we instrumentalists are fascinated by this too by the way!), they are very inspiring. They are skilled professionals in a very competitive job, that look around, ask questions, and are open to creating and working on the solutions. In is an empowering community that I can’t wait to see grow!”
