Dr. Sanches is a teacher, performer, composer and researcher. He is a faculty member of Flatirons Strings Academy, and has a private cello studio in Boulder, Colorado. Hailing from São Paulo, Brazil, he pursued his bachelor’s degree at Oberlin College, studying cello with Peter Rejto and composition with Randolph Coleman and Richard Hoffmann. Dr. Sanches finished his doctorate and master’s degrees at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he was Prof. Judith Glyde’s teaching assistant for six years. He is principal of the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra, assistant principal of the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra, and plays with Opera Colorado and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, among others. One of Dr. Sanches greatest passions is writing and arranging music to fit the needs of his students, and future projects include the publication of didactic cello literature. Strings Magazine has published one of his articles on how to write your own cello étude, and his paper on Ginastera’s palindromes won the Fiske Writing Award this year.
