My approach to music tuition caries with each student. I teach a range of students from 5 year old beginners, adult beginners to fine amateur pianists entering music festival competitions. I believe in the fundamentals of good technique and this enables all students in the long run to play more difficult pieces with ease. I get on well with all my students and push those that need to be pushed. I have 2 student concerts a year where the students play to an audience on a grand piano. I also try and organise a couple of master classes for students.

I have more than 17 years experience as a soloist, chamber musician and a teacher of piano, ensemble and accompaniment. I have performed many times in the most prestigious concert halls and theatres in Cuba including two performances with the National Symphony Orchestra at Amadeo Roldan Theatre in Havana in 2006.

I have also won prizes at several chamber music competitions in Cuba, including the best interpretation of Cuban music by the National Union of Writers and Artists in competition in 2006.

I have worked as accompanist/repetiteur pianist at the National Zarzuela and Opera Theatres in Havana. I have also played flamenco and classical music with the popular ballet company of Liz Alfonso and worked as musical director and pianist at Gladys Puig musical theatre company in Havana.

I have participated in many master classes, workshops and has performed as a soloist, accompanist and chamber pianist in many venues in London such as the Bolivar Hall at the Venezuelan Embassy and The Regentís Hall in Oxford Circus.

It is my interest to promote classical Cuban music from the baroque to contemporary composers and my repertoire also includes Latin American music. As well as my solo performances I have a duo with the Brazilian cellist Diego Carneiro and a Tango ensemble with the soprano Maya Sapone and saxophonist Martino Scovacricci.
