" Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us."

 I love music and I have always been fascinated by the piano since I was a little girl. I began to study the piano when I was 12 years old, but I only got my piano two years later. My dad bought it for my birthday. It was the best present I received in my whole life.

 I studied for many years with Myriam Pamplona de Campos, who taught music at the Brazilian Music Conservatory (Conservatório Brasileiro de Música). When I entered university, I studied with the Brazilian pianist Heitor Alimonda at Rio de Janeiro's Federal University Music School (Escola de Música da UFRJ). I have to thank my dear teacher Myriam for everything she taught me along these years.

The Piano

"The idea of fitting a keyboard to an instrument with strings, which started to vibrate when struck by hammers, was conceived probably in the fourteenth and certainly in the fifteenth century.

Bartolommeo Cristofori, a Paduan harpsichord maker, is credited with constructing the first piano, the date usually put at between 1709 and 171 1. He called his new instrument "gravicembalo col piano e forte", or "harpsichord with soft and loud". In shape and general construction it resembled a harpsichord, but it differed in its action mechanism.

The year 2000 marked the 300th anniversary of the invention of the piano."
