He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Suntory Hall, Osaka Festival Hall, Madison Square Garden, Tchaikovsky Hall and House of Music in Moscow among others.

    Simon
    Specialized music course (history, music theory, guitar)
    For any student who wants to learn music theory or music history, get back on track or just expand their skills. This course is intended primarily for students in music schools, but it may also correspond to students in public or higher schools. Music has always been of crucial importance in the lives of men, whether for entertainment, spiritual accompaniment or even for trade and advertising. If its applications are so varied, its theory has not changed in recent centuries and it is this same theory that I propose to help you learn as well as the story that accompanies and precedes it. My studies in musicology at the University of Geneva and my passion for music and everything that touches her from near and far have allowed me to acquire over the years all that is necessary to be able to learn who wants it. all you need to know about this beautiful art. From counterpoint to harmony, from the history of ancient music to that of the twentieth century, everything is possible, the level will be evaluated according to the student and his desires. This course can be declined either in the form of homework help or in the form of broadening of knowledge. I let you contact me for more information. See you soon, I hope!
