Apart from the technical aspects, we also work on the expressive side of music and learn to perform various repertoire - from operatic arias and musical theatre to pop songs, depending on my student's preferences. I am excited to work with students of any age and level of musical development - from the very beginners to advanced musicians! :)

Also piano for beginners. From jazz style to other modern styles such as Bossa Nova, Funk, Rock, Groove, etc. With ten years of experience in studying and practicing, I've arrived to the conclusion that the best way to learn music is by transcribing, singing and learning it. Music is like speaking, so my method starts by teaching how to connect your voice with your instrument. According to your rhythm in the learning process, I will introduce you to harmony, teach you how to read music, compose your own tunes and improvise. Side by side with theory according to your musical taste and preferences. I was born in 1997 in Tarragona (Catalunya, Spain). At the age of 4 I started to study classical guitar and when I was 10 I went into modern music and jazz.

Previously, I've studied at ESMUC (Barcelona), where I finished my Bachelor last year. I have studied and learned from great musicians and teachers such as Jesse van Ruller, Rob Van Bavel, Reinier Baas, Jaume Llombart, Maarten Van Der Grinten, Sanna Van Vilet, Dani Pérez, Eladio Reinón, Joan Monné, Enric Peinado, Albert Bover, David Xirgu, Gonzalo del Val, Santi Careta, among others. During my musical career, I've been lucky to play with great musicians such as Bill McHenry, Fèlix Rossy, Gianni Gagliardi, Jo Krause, Horacio Fumero, Aldo Caviglia, Mario Rossy, Sanna Van Vliet, Eladio Reinon, Rita Payés, Deejay Foster, Benet Palet, Deejay Foster, Guillem Arnedo, Julius Gawlik, Deejay Foster, Gonzalo del Val, Ian Cleaver, Txema Riera, Menno Daams, David Lucácks, Fernando Brox, Vicent Pèrez, Pau Lligades, Santi Colomer, Santi Serratosa, Juan Pablo Balcazar, Eva Fernandez, Magalí Datzira, Lucas Martínez, etc. I've attended to masterclasses from International musicians as Peter Bernstein, Jorge Rossy, Chick Corea, Bob Mintzer, Christian McBride, Kenny Barron, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Joshua Redman, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gary Burton, Ben Street, Lage Lund, Michael Kanan, Richard Bona, among others. Furthermore, I've got the pleasure to play at many festivals and clubs around Spain (Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival from Barcelona, Festival de Jazz de Terrassa, Luz de Gas, Jamboree, Sala Barts, Auditori, Robadors23, Balius, Música als Parcs, Auditori del Liceu, Cercle del Liceu, Casa de Cultura de Girona, Keyboard Jazz Lounge, Cafè Metropol, Festival Internacional de Dixieland de Tarragona, Traviesa, MArt, Sala Zero, Gira Cicle Andajazz 2018, Clasijazz, CICUS Sevilla, Gran Teatro de Huelva, El Musicario, Rizoma Records, etc.), and The Netherlands (GrachtenFestival, Intercontinental Hotel, NEMO Science, festival Otis Park, Stella by Starlight, etc).

    Music lessons: Double bass, bass guitar. Jazz, classical and world-music. Learn how to study
    Hey there! In my lessons, what you want is the most important. That's why we create together a plan of study with ideas, goals and subjects to reach out our dream to make music (that's also my dream) Nevertheless, I can give you an overview of the content: I divide the music theory in two: Technical and Musical. Technical Theory regarding all the concepts and information related to music, and Musical Theory regarding the ideas and concepts to help us understand and improve the performance of music. Besides that, we look to harmony in a functional, rhythmical and organic way. We learn and approach music from the first lesson, looking at it from different angles (understanding rhythm and essence of a song for example). All this plus a nice diet of assignments and exercises: D Furthermore, we put especial attention to enjoying music. That means playing but also listening music! For me, that's one of the best ways to learn :) And of course, we learn as well by making mistakes, so at the end it's all about fun and trying things out;) Remember: "True success isn't just getting what you want in life - it's liking what you get";) César
