Renata de Lemos Miranda Jordao

Renata Jordão received her BM in orchestral conducting from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and furthered her studies in both orchestral conducting and violin in Paris at the École Normale de Musique de Paris with Dominique Ruitz and Marie Claude Theuveny, as well as in Brussels (violin) at the Académie de Musique de Wemmel with Johan Lommelen. In Barcelona, Spain, she also studied Violin with Eva Graubin and orchestral conducting (based on the principles of Phenomenology of Music) with Maestro Jordi Mora, former disciple of Sergiu Celibidache.

Since her first Suzuki training in 2013, and with a strong commitment of lifelong learning, Ms. Jordão has already registered violin and teaching strategies from Books 1 to 5 (each of them more than once) with Edward Kreitman, Shinobu Saito, Charles Krigbaum, Fernando Piñero and Marilyn O’Boyle. In adittion, she has enriched her training attending Dalcroze with Jeremy Dittus, Kodaly with Lydia Mills, Music Reading with Caroline Fraser and Suzuki Early Childhood Education. She has also been a teacher and a key participant in many Suzuki Festivals such as Suzuki International Festival in Lima, Peru and in San Salvador, El Salvador.

Inspired by Suzuki´s book “Nurtured by love” and following her passion for teaching, she has founded three violin orchestras in disadvantaged communities of both Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, Brazil (Orquestra Cartola- Petrobrás, Orquestra Nova Sinfonia and Orquestrando Canela), where she worked as a violin teacher and director. Delighted with Suzuki Method’s results and its life-changing power, Renata is specially committed to sharing her knowledge and skills with youths at risk (at slums), and also runs her private Studio in her hometown, Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro.
