Who am I?
I am a superior piano professor of classical music and I have started teaching in 2012 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, my home country. In the first semester of 2018 I worked as a full-time piano teacher in WKMT Piano Institute in London, UK, where I have trained and developed my pedagogic skills working with students from all around the world. This experience allowed me to mentor from professionals to early ages with very diverse backgrounds. I continued my project in Rotterdam, Netherlands, where I finished my masters in Piano Tango and Jazz Composition (CODARTS), and where I decided to stay and share my knowledge and experience with new dutch and international students. These are the kind of experiences worth working for, and that confirm my engagement to my pedagogic aims.

Teaching & Learning Music
Music is a way of finding how to express yourself in a specific language, and it is at the same time a fun and fascinating process. It is also a tool to improve intelligence and creativity. As a music teacher, I face a challenge every time I train a student, because learning music and learning piano implies a very personal development.
