My name is Samuel and I am a violin student at the University of Southern Mississippi. I am currently in my junior year here, and I absolutely love it. I originally come from Brazil, but I have been living in the US for 4 1/2 years. Here I study under Dr. Stephen Redfield, and I also had the opportunity to play with and had lessons from very well known teachers and performers such as Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Burton Kaplan, Igor Petrushevsky and many others. I am really looking forward to new experiences.
