    I had such an amazing experience with Marcelo. He was always quick to respond and super nice. He went above and beyond to capture the flute part and sound I was looking for, and added incredible improvisations in addition to my composed part. I would not hesitate to recommend him and I definitely hope to work with him again. Thank you so much Marcelo! :)
