Later, in 2016, he completed his Master's Degree in Music Teaching at the University of Aveiro, with the dissertation "Expanded Techniques as a Resource and as a Technical Development of the Repertoire for Tenor Saxophone". He attended several courses – with Claude Delangle, Arno Bornkamp, James Houlik, Antonio Belijar, Mario Marzi – and played with conductors such as Heinz Holligger, Jan Cober, Douglas Bostock. Jorge collaborated with the Oporto Symphonic Orchestra, the Portuguese Saxophone Orchestra, the FLUX Ensemble and with Portuguese Symphonic Band, playing all over the world. Pedagogically speaking, Jorge is developing his class at Academia de Música de Costa Cabral in Oporto and at Escola Profissional de Música de Espinho.
