Born in Campinas, Brazil, collaborative pianist Guilherme Godoi completed his bachelor's degree in piano performance at Campinas State University and moved to the United States for his graduate studies.

He has presented lectures on Brazilian music at conferences and served as adjudicator for piano competitions in his home country.   

As a performer, Mr. Godoi has appeared throughout the U. S., Brazil and the Middle East, in solo and chamber music recitals. He has also participated in masterclasses with Stephanie Blythe, Marilyn Horne, Metropolitan Opera conductor Pierre Vallet, the Anderson and Roe piano duo, and others.   

He recently finished his doctoral program at FSU with a treatise on Brazilian Portuguese diction that provides coaches and singers a pedagogical approach to learning BP using the English language as a bridge, and an overview of the operatic works of Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Gomes.   

He currently serves as staff pianist at Coastal Carolina University in Myrtle Beach, SC. He previously worked at The Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam as vocal coach for opera productions and student recitals.
