This week we feature one of our busiest Teaching Artists, Matheus Garcia-Souza ’14 MM. Originally from Londrina, Brazil, Matheus started teaching during his undergraduate studies at the University of Missouri, with students from the ages of 6 to 50.
In his second year of teaching in New Haven, Matheus now has about 40 young students total. Not only does he teach 15 beginner string students at Lincoln-Bassett Elementary School, but on Saturday he directs the All-City Honors Orchestra, with about 25 students of all levels. In the summer of 2013, he also directed the String Orchestra of the Morse Summer Music Academy.
