Personal Description:

I am a composer, pianist, organist, educator and improviser currently based in Chester. I studied piano at the Conservatorio Municipal Ataúlfo Argenta with M. Isabel Charlón. In the lasts years of my degree, I started to be very interested in harmony and counterpoint thanks to the arrival of the composer Antonio Noguera who shows me other paths in music. For this reason, I finally decided to move to Barcelona to study theory and composition at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMuC), where I studied with the masters Luis Naón and Mauricio Sotelo, and attended seminars and master-classes by Lasse Thoresen, Daniel Teruggi, Joan Albert Amargós, José Nieto, Hilda Paredes, Kaija Saariaho, Jose María Sánchez-Verdú and many others.

In 2013 I moved to England where I did my PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) at the University of Huddersfield, working in the City of Liverpool College. I also studied a Masters in Research in Music Composition at the University of Liverpool being mentored by Dr Ben Hackbarth. Within this course I worked along with other Postgraduate students composing music for a silent film, this project was carried out with the collaboration of FACT Liverpool and became part of the Open Circuit Festival 2016, I also participated at the Video Jam event and the concert Creando Futuros organised by the Botín Foundation. My works have been performed by ensembles such us BCN216, 10/10 and Cantabria, members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, trio Hecuba, Tere Gómez, Agustín Fernández, Nina Whiteman, Mario G. Cortizo, Hannah Clark and many others.

Many of my works have an interdisciplinary sense, mostly combined with painting, as I am very interested in this plastic art. Currently, I am part of the Merseyside Improvisors Orchestra (MIO) and I am also working towards my PhD at the Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester) where I research about the connection in between the painting process and music, my supervision team is formed by Prof. Adam Gorb (composer), Dr. David Horne (composer) and Fionna Barber (artist).

Tutoring Experience:

I have an important creative-teaching experience with a very good results, as I'm a very outgoing, expressive, enthusiastic and responsible person who love to work with children and adults transmitting my music knowledge being patient and making them to enjoy while learning.

Tutoring Approach:

I prepare the students to their ABRSM, Trinity or Rock School boards' exams, and at the same time I create funny games (with colors, shapes and sounds) and different ways to make them love the music as I do, I always ask them about the TV/films/game songs they prefer and then I do personalized arrangements to encourage them to become musicians, and also I love to play four hands piano pieces with them.

I work in a casual way as accompanist also preparing performers of different instruments to do their Aural and Music knowledge tests.

If you would like to have a trial lesson for free I am sure you'll get impressed :)
