Matheus Borin is a Brazilian artist born and raised in Sao Paulo, a city located on the southeast of Brasil. At the age of ten, Matheus started playing the guitar, inspired by rock bands and artists such as Guns N’ Roses, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. By the age of thirteen, he was already playing professionally in different bands and venues in Sao Paulo.
In 2016, Matheus studied at the Convervatrio Souza Lima in Brazil, where he was mentored by the great Brazilian guitarist Lupa Santiago and was exposed to a wide variety of genres like Bossa Nova, Samba, Funk and Jazz. He then moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, where he could expand even more of his horizons by working with artists from all over the world, playing in different ensembles and doing studio sessions. At Berklee, Matheus was mentored by many well accomplished musicians like Sal Difusco, John Baboian, Bruce Barlett, Jason Palmer, Rick Peckham and Richie Hart.
Matheus has been working as a freelance music teacher since the age of sixteen. His early experience with teaching has allowed him to be able to understand how to work with student’s individual characteristics, adapting the lessons depending on each person’s needs. Teaching has always been a big part of his life and a joyful experience for him.
