Coming from the carpentry, I started to get interested in bowed instruments in 2006. After working in repairing of instruments for about two years, I started to build new instruments, what got to be the main part of my work.
In 2014 I began to study at the Fachhochschule für Musikinstrumentenbau in Markneukirchen, Germany. Beyond the theoretical curses, like acoustics or physics of the materials, the practical lessons took a great part. Next to the restoring of instruments, the construction of eight instruments was required.
In 2018 I comlpeted with the Bachelor of Arts in bowed instrument making.
For any question please feel free to contact me.
My workshop in Portugal is situated on a calm place outside the village, suitable to try the instruments without noise or pressure of time.
