Hi! I was born and raised in New York City to Dominican immigrant parents and that upbringing has influenced my life both personally and professionally. I began playing music at the age of 18 (which many consider late) and thanks to my teachers and parents' belief in me I was able to achieve my goal of becoming a musician.
I went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree from CUNY York College in Music and I also had the pleasure of attending the Aaron Copland School of Music in New York City to fine tune my craft. Besides music, my passion has always been educating children, and I’m proud to say I am entering my 8th year in education! I believe in being a life-long learner, so I’m also proud to say that I’m currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in International Education from King’s College London.
