About
I am a jazz/worship pianist. Since I began to explore elements not typically found in worship music and blend with other genres, I've experimented a fusion between worship music and contemporary jazz. My piano playing goal understanding elegance and sensitivity of jazz in a worship atmosphere. Brazilian from Rio de Janeiro, I earned a bachelor in Music Education at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and a Jazz Improvisation specialization at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he lived for several years. In addition to touring regularly with my band on a regular basis, I've been traveled around the world ministering a worship seminar named Face to Face with my wife Maressa Kowalski. After performing several times as sideman and bandleader in Switzerland, France, Belgium, Spain, Argentina, Portugal, Germany, Japan and other countries, I moved to Atlanta where I am music director in a church. Looking forward to connect with lyricists andersonbraga@me.com
