Cello
Miami, FL
Texas Christian University
I studied the cello in Miami Arts Charter School (MAC) based in Miami, Fl, under the tutelage of Jason Calloway, cellist of the Amernet quartet and Professor of Cello at Florida International University. I was principal cellist of the MAC orchestra for three years and substitute principal of the Miami Music Project Youth Orchestra. In my senior year I was accepted to the Florida All- State Symphonic Orchestra, and the New World Symphony Side-by-Side Orchestra. In 2016 I started my Bachelors of Music in Cello Performance at Texas Christian University (TCU) under the tutelage of Dr. Jesus Castro-Balbi where I was awarded a full-tuition scholarship. In 2013 I was given the "Outstanding Musician" award at MAC, and in 2017 & 2018 I received the honor of "Dean's Scholar" at TCU. I was a finalist in the 2018 TCU Concerto Competition with the Elgar Cello Concerto: 4th movt.
