I am an experienced international flutist and composer and multi-instrumentalist, deeply passionate about pushing musical boundaries. Raised in Argentina, I was immersed in Candombe, Chacarera, Milonga, and Tango melodies. My academic journey led me to UNT and EMPA, specializing in Tango music. In 2010 I relocated to the US where I expanded my expertise with early childhood programs like Music Together.
As a performer, I've collaborated with notable musicians in various genres at prestigious venues like the Old Town School of Popular Music and the Indianapolis Metal Fest."
As a composer and band leader, my journey led me to found and direct the Yuyo Verde Tango Band and later the Carla Campopiano Trio. This path also involved creating multimedia projects, such as ‘Borges Piazzolla y el Tango,’ and embarking on two memorable European tours.
I've shared my musical knowledge through teaching in schools and community centers, offering private lessons, and contributing to music schools. I've also had the privilege of instructing in Summer Music Programs, covering various instruments such as piano, flute, Violin, Guitar, and music theory, as well as early childhood music programs.
In my teaching approach
I seek to ensure that each lesson is not only productive and practical but also an opportunity to perceive the magic and joy of music creation.
To the students
I warmly encourage students to always embrace the joy of music. While it's common to encounter technical challenges or obstacles in practice, it's essential to remember that music is the objective itself and that is why music has the remarkable power to connect people from all over the World.
