My Experience as a Teacher

My name is Diogo Filipe da Luz Fernandes, born in Portugal. I have graduated from Escola Superior de Artes Aplicadas in Castelo Branco (ESART), finishing the course the highest grade. Currently, I am taking on a Master's Degree in Music Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, under the tuition of Gerard McCrystal.

Since a very young age, music has always had an important place in my life, and at the age of eleven, I entered at the Conservatório Regional de Setúbal, taking saxophone classes and music theory classes. I was also involved in several masterclasses and internships of Orquestra Sinfónica da Metropolitana, Orquestra de Sopros de Setúbal (Portugal), and the Grand Union Orchestra (UK).

Since the beginning of my Bachelor's degree in Portugal, I performed with various ensembles outside the context of the university projects. My work with the Vision Ensemble, a chamber music group composed by a string quartet, a saxophone, and a piano. The performances include a variety of sonorities over a large array of styles and composers from Bach to Verdi to Piazzolla and even Morricone. Our original arrangements make us a unique asset in the Portuguese music scene.
