I got my University Degree in composition and piano at Conservatorio Superior de Música Manuel Castillo, Seville. I focus on Flamenco music, but I also began studying Jazz three years ago with teacher Fran Mazuelos.
I have been teaching in academies and conservatories in my region for the last decade.

As a musician involved in the Flamenco culture of my country, I've conducted research into the harmonic and rhythmic aspects of Flamenco music. After more than 15 years of studying and playing this music at the piano, I created a pedagogy system for teaching the Flamenco musical language on any instrument, harmonic or melodic.

Of all the local musicians I've played with, I would like to highlight my recordings with the famous local singer, Lole Montoya (Lole y Manuel).

In the summer of 2015, I was invited to play at the 24 Hours Piano Festival at Jerusalem Theatre, Israel.

I speak Spanish, English, Italian and Hebrew.

I'm going to teach by using a whiteboard to explain the Flamenco musical language, and a piano to illustrate the theory with clear musical examples.

I like to teach the language of Flamenco music from the root, starting with the various genres ("Palos") like Bulerias, Soleares, Alegrias, Tangos, etc. My goal is to develop the student's understanding of the rhythmic, harmonic and melodic aspects of this wonderful music.
