I am a PhD in Health, Interdisciplinarity and Rehabilitation by University of Campinas. The aim of my Thesis was to research the process of interaction in circle between teacher, children, parents and grandparents experiencing a pedagogical musical work. At the Master Degree program, I studied blind musicians and their paths as professionals and students. The area of education, public management, and culture has always been of great interest during my personal and professional career. I have been involved in activities that contributed to the collective practice of music since my first graduation in music (classical piano). I organized concerts, shows and festivals. I worked as music librarian at the Symphonic Orchestra of the City of Campinas and during this period, I had my first contact with the citys bureaucracy. I was involved in organizing the institutions collection in addition to preparing the material for the concerts and rehearsals. I got involved in the strategic planning area of the Orchestra and then I developed my skills in the area of management: contracts with producers and musicians; project evaluation; bids opening; contracts management. I was the faculty lecturer in MBA and in Pedagogy at undergraduate and graduate courses, in addition to having worked as a consultant at educational psychology area. I worked as piano teacher in a studio specialized in early childhood music teaching. I played the piano at concerts, chamber music groups and solo. I was the former head of Culture and Tourism of the City of Vinhedo.
