He was enraptured by the sound of the folk guitar when he met Aldo Efigênio dos Santos, "Efigeninho", a famous "violeiro" from Dracena. He learned to play and to build his own instruments. Through time he has improved on his technique, faced challenges, as he has been living between music and medicine.

He presides the Cultural Association Caipirapuru, NGO established by "violeiros" and admirers of this kind of music. He is a collaborator in the holding of the "Annual meeting of Violeiros and singers of Irapuru", which is in its sixth edition.
