About Me

I would describe myself as open-minded, sensitive, empathetic, and with strong values. My motto in life is to be constant, patient, and have clear goals to continue progressing as a person, teacher, and artist.

My life as a violinist began at the Conservatorio Superior "Pablo Sarasate" in Pamplona (Spain) where I did my bachelor studies. Later, I moved to the Netherlands to study at the Prince Claus Conservatory for my second bachelor's and my master´s degree in violin. Currently, I am studying for my second master's degree at the University of Music and Performing Arts (KUG) in Graz with Eszter Haffner.

My life as a musician has led me to perform in more than 15 countries and in important halls such as Musikverein in Vienna, Berliner Philharmonie in Berlin, Het Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Herkulessaal in Munich, Stockholm Concert Hall in Stockholm, Sejong Center for Performing Arts in Seoul, Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid, and The Royal Opera House in Muscat, among others.

For many years, I have had a special interest in teaching as it is a great inspiration for me to continue to grow as a musician.

Education

The University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (Austria), Prince Claus Conservatory in Groningen (The Netherlands), and "Pablo Sarasate" Conservatory of Pamplona (Spain)

Experience / Qualifications

After more than 20 years of experience both as a musician and as a teacher, I am still growing and motivated every day to keep improving and to help my students reach their goals and objectives. Patience, perseverance, and quality work are fundamental parts of my daily work both with my students and myself. I graduated in bachelor's and master's of violin at different universities in Europe giving this experience that I carry with me.

Reviews (1)

I studied the violin for about 2 months with Fermin and I have grown much in my knowledge of not just how to play but how to think when playing. Fermin has also helped a lot with technical struggles allowing me to break through some of the challenges that were bothering me for a long time. He is a very patient teacher but he will not hesitate to stop you and correct you (as any good teacher would) if you are not playing correctly. I personally requested that he gives me honest feedback which really helped me play better tecnically and musically. I believe he will be open to adapting his strictness upon specific requests. The time difference (Fermin being in Spain and I being in the US) has not been easy but Fermin was very willing to bend his schedule and provided several time slots to accommodate my availability. To sum up, if you are looking for a teacher that is patient in character yet unrelenting toward the goal of fully tapping your potential both musically and tecnically, I would recommend you take a lesson with Fermin.

Irene
Violin teacher giving violin/music theory lessons in Amsterdam
My violin lessons are shaped in relation to the student's age, goals and interests. I have experience in teaching to children as well as adults and I like the student to have fun while learning such a wonderful thing as playing music. If you are a beginner I'll start with the basic theory, but always in combination with practical approach on the instrument. I'm mostly working with classical music, but I'm also into other genres and I'm very open to help you in any way I can. I can teach in english and in Italian (working on the dutch!) and I can't provide the violin, but I can give some suggestions about where and how to find it. Please contact me if interested!

Solfeggio and theory of music: play by ear and compose!
Solfeggio and theory of music for children and adults, by experienced teacher and teorist. Music theory lessons aimed at developing your ear and your potential as a composer. To be able to arrange any song, knowledge of music theory and harmony is necessary. The rather logical progressive (or intensive) method which just requires a little more effort at the beginning ;-))

You'll learn how to use the voice in the proper way, starting by your natural speech and developing it to find your own sound. I have experience in both Pop and Jazz styles (a Bachelor in Jazz Singing and a degree in Jazz Composition), so it's possible to study songs from both this repertoires. I also give Music Theory Lessons, to make the student develop his/her own style and musical sensibility and, in the case of Jazz, to know how to improvise on different chord changes and jazz styles.
