Bio

Very young, when I was 6 years old, I started music studies and saxophone with my father, Marcos Aldana. The matter of having her father with private students surrounding all day was perfect to get the likeness for the instrument and the music itself. When I was 10 participate in the international contest "Bravo Bravissimo", getting the first place. I also participated in a Miami TV show contest "Quiero Ser Una Estrella", and among several young people of all around the world I got the first place. Also appearances in Milan (Italy). With all this happening in my short life, I started to improve more and more the technique and musical issues, being able to enter the Jazz scene in Chile, gaining a huge respect among jazz colleagues. On May 2006 I was invited to perform live with Randy Brecker, having two presentations in Chile. On 2006 I Had the chance to meet the great Danilo Perez, who lately invited me to perform in the Panama Jazz Festival and then I when to Boston, to audition in either Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory. I was granted with the Berklee Presidential Scholarship, being able to study in the prestigious Berklee College of Music, institution where I am enrolled since January 2007.
Melissa have a Group with Michael Palma, and they will record the first album in Febrery 2009.
