Teaching Philosophy

Music is known as an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound and silence, which exist in time in such a way as to produce beauty.

However, with more than 25 years of experience as a professional musician and 14 as a music educator, I can assert that music is much more than a cultural and aesthetic experience. I consider music as, what I call, the Art of Agreement, and that is my motto as a music educator.
