Eduardo-BolettiI’m a Brazilian musician coming from São Paulo and I’ve been teaching music for the past 20 years. In 2007 I finished my graduation in conducting and composing at UNESP – State University of São Paulo, Brazil, one of the five best universities in Latin America. Since then, I’ve been working as a choir conductor, vocal coach, music director, pianist and music theory teacher.

I think music is the perfect way to enhance creativity, concentration and self-awareness, and I believe the process of learning music should encourage students to experiment with different types of music genres. In that way,  learners can properly understand the kind of music they want to produce as well as acquire adequate musical knowledge to achieve their personal goals. As a music teacher, I feel I have the responsibility of guiding learners into their path on discovering what they want to reach, and prompt them with the right tools to get there.

“I think music is a language as much as it is an art. Artists use music to connect with their underlying emotions, spirituality and their loved ones. When I play and create my music, I feel like my most authentic self, powerful, and at peace. All in all, I think music is a token for communication, not only through its lyricism and poetry, but through musicality. Melody, rhythm, tonality, progression and harmonics are well endowed tools for musical communication. I love incorporating all of these interesting topics when I compose music.”
