“I am an aspiring classical pianist who has fallen under the spell of piano music. The possibility of conveying emotions through music fills me with humility. My mentors have nurtured my passion and shaped my musical path.

From Baroque to Romantic, I have explored different styles to express myself artistically. The stage is an opportunity for me to share these emotions and create moments of reflection and joy.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. Together we can create connections and enrich artistic experiences through music.”
