To whom it may concern,

This is a Letter of Recommendation in support of Mário José Martins dos Santos and his desire to
attend your MPhil in Music and Media Technology program.

I’ve known Mário Santos since September of 2015, when he enrolled in the PTM course of
ESMAE/IPP, and is about to conclude his Bachelor’s degree in July of 2018 with an excellent grading.
During this period, as a teacher, I’ve had the opportunity of witnessing his great propensity and pro-
ficiency towards the artistic and technological areas of my classes: Music Analysis, and Arrangement
for small ensembles. Within these areas, I should emphasize his great technical voice ability, an enor-
mous musicality, a highly performance on theoretical classes, and, on a broader level, a remarkable
skill to deal with people and organization, taking all the time the initiative to make sure everything is
working superbly well.

Now that he is almost finishing his Bachelor’s degree, given the high capacity demonstrated
throughout his stage in ESMAE and his current motivation towards proceeding his studies, and given
the adequacy of his own profile to the MPhil degree to which he’s currently proposing, I recommend
him with no hesitation as a great candidate to the Trinity College Dublin degree in Music and Media
Technology program.
