For 20 years I have dedicated myself to developing educational and recreational proposals that have the objective of facilitating access to people of all ages to learn percussion, so that they can learn to make music with various percussion instruments.

I started teaching percussion in several musical school in my Home Town in Buenos Aires Argentina, Buenas Artes Escuela de Música, El Jardín de la Esquina, Aequalis, among others.

In the year 2000 a created my own music school, Escuela Urbana de Música y Artes, in which I taught percussion to more than an 4.000 students of all ages and levels. Since then I developed my teaching activities only in there and my online clases throught my website Tocar Percusión.

Between years 2010 and 2012 I worked for UNICEF as a musical facilitator for several programas developed by this international NGO in the north provinces of Argentina.

Also, ´between 2014 and 2018  I worked as music and percussion factilitator for teachers and students in several educational programs developed but the following organizations: Ministerio de Cultural de la Nación Argentina, Ministerio de Educación de la Provincia de Mendoza, Ministerio de Educación de la Provincia de La Pampa and Ministerio de Educación de la Provincia de Tierra del Fuego.

In addition from 2016 to 2018 I developed several musical and educational programs for kids and families in association with two NGO from Argentina: Liga de Amas de Casa y la Asociación de Amigos del Museo Sívori.

I also have a large professional background as composer, producer and session musician. In the last 10 years I participated in more than a 1000 professional recording as percussionist. 

In my classes I propose a practical and fun learning route, which gradually and progressively teaches you all the concepts and elements necessary to achieve your goals with percussion.
