Ángel Pareja-Francisco, Spanish flute teacher in the Muscat Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra. He has received awards in international competitions, as well as the "Specially Commended" award at TWIMC 2022 or "UK Young Musician of the Year 2020" in Huddersfield.

He began his flute studies at the age of 8 in Malaga and then moved to Ireland to study at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with Bill Dowdall and Patricia Morris. He then moved to Manchester to study at the Royal Northern College of Music with Kevin Gowland and Jenny Hutchinson, having also studied with Susan Milan, Laura Jellicoe, Cormac Henry and Joshua Batty. He has received masterclasses from Sir James Galway, William Bennett, Andrea Oliva, Adam Walker and Lorna McGhee.

He has collaborated with the BBC Philharmonic, The Hallé Orchestra, Manchester Camerata, Northern Film Orchestra, Ceuta International Symphony Orchestra, Iberian Sinfonietta, Malaga Camerata and has performed solo flute concertos with the Dublin Symphony Orchestra, The Hallé Orchestra, Trinity Dublin Orchestra and the Iberian Sinfonietta. He has also worked with distinguished conductors such as Elim Chan, Andrew Gourlay, Gerhard Markson, Martin André and Sir Mark Elder.

He has performed at RTÈ One, Instituto Cervantes Dublin, Channel 5 UK, RTVE 1, National Gallery Dublin, National Spanish Hall, Manuel de Falla Hall, Bridgewater Hall and the Teatro Cervantes in Malaga.

Ángel enjoys playing classical and new music, whether on piccolo, alto flute or electric flute, having premiered operas, chamber music, solo flute pieces and a world premiere of a flute concerto by Spanish composer Jorge Grundman in November 2023.

A versatile and accomplished approach to flute teaching that encompasses both traditional classical techniques and a willingness to explore new musical horizons. My extensive training with notable instructors and participation in various prestigious orchestras and ensembles gave me a strong foundation in classical flute pedagogy. However, my engagement with contemporary and experimental music, as well as my experience with different flute types such as piccolo, alto flute, and electric flute, moves towards a forward-thinking and adaptable teaching style.

My exposure to a diverse range of musical contexts, from solo performances to collaborations with orchestras and conductors, implies that I value a well-rounded approach to flute education that prepares students for a variety of musical opportunities. Additionally, my involvement in premiering new works showcases a commitment to innovation and artistic exploration, qualities that could inspire creativity and open-mindedness in my teaching approach.
