I am deeply grateful that SEM contributed to the purchase of a professional Bass Clarinet. The purchase of a professional Prestige Bass Clarinet has had a profound impact on my journey to becoming a versatile clarinettist aiming towards an international performance career. As a dedicated clarinettist with a specialization in Latin-jazz clarinet, particularly Caribbean and South American music, I have come to appreciate how incorporating the bass clarinet into my musical palette adds a unique perspective to my music and my projects. Its distinct register and character bring beauty, sincerity, rawness and elegance.

Developing from now on with a high-quality instrument will allow me to deepen my skills, knowledge, and improve in my performance level and the insight with instrument, aiming to deliver a personal message through my own compositions and selected repertoire.
