In accordance with your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, and how to compose your own melodies and improvise. I was born in 1997 in Tarragona (Catalonia, Spain). At the age of 4 I started studying classical guitar at 10 years old I took a keen interest in modern music and jazz.

Bass and Double Bass Lessons! Let's play some music!
Does it happen to you too? You're listening to the music and ... You Just Can't Take your Focus Off the lower tones, the foundation of the song, The Bass. Let me tell you something: if you do that it means that ... You're already Learning! Whether you're listening to pop, rock, r'n'b, jazz, blues, you name it, the Bass is always there to work as the foundation on which the Band can build on. I can guide your curiosity through the discovery of the various bass techniques, we can work together using the music of the artists you love to walk our way in the realm of the Low Tones. Didn't you always want to meet up with those friends of yours and play those songs you all love? That amazing bass riff from Muse, that lovely song from Coldplay or super cool funky Bruno Mars. Or maybe you dream of the warm cuddly sound of the double bass, playing with the bow and feel the vibration of the Wood. Playing some Jazz, along with Miles Davis or Wayne Shorter. With almost 20 years of experience in the low tones world I can guide you in the study of electric bass and double bass. I'm an active performer and touring musician, as well as a master graduated Bass player. (Conservatory of Amsterdam) We will work together to find what best suites you. Through the music that you love we'll find the right path to discover the world of the Bass. PS: (For fearless only) I will teach also the secret art of: “Riding a bike while carrying your bass without getting killed”.
