About Me

When I had 6 years my grandfathers put in my hands an old guitar, with two broken strings, and since then I haven´t let nor only a day live for the music.

I studied classic guitar in the Real Conservatory of Madrid. In order to study jazz and rock and modern music in general I have participated in masters class and seminaries with musicians like Gary Burton, Pat Metheny, Roland Dyens, Manuel Barrueco, Williams Waters, Rick Peckham, Larry Baione, Jim Kelly… etc, etc, and at the moment I´m making to Certification Masters in Songwriting on Berkleemusic.com. The great goal of my life is to be able to license in Berklee College of Music.

While living in Madrid-Spain I was heavily involved in the poprock music scene, playing mainly with “Tacones”, “Los Pistones” and “Lejos de Allí” recorded 6 albums with these bands and I was in the TopTens of the music lists of my country. Also I worked with the producers and composers Gonzalo and Ivan Garcia-Pelayo several years on productions and sonwriting record and Tv. I realize some gigs with several solo artist and recorded for music and direct tv programs. During 8 years I worked in advertising for different agencies, and formed my own record studio, recording more than 300 spots for radio and TV.

At the moment I live near Valencia, next to the Mediterranean Sea, reason why despite being the main rock music language with which I musically management, my music has been influenced by the loudness of the own instruments of this earth, and little by little I have been studying and playing the Portuguese Guitar, the Egyptian Oud, the Turkish Saz, the Italian Mandola and Mandolina, the Greeck Bouzouki, the Guimbri Berebere, and some wind instruments like the ney, saphon, whistle, and different ethnic flutes. Now I study also Viola da Gamba, and I´am following several courses and seminaries on Renaissance Music.

I teach on the Municipal School of Music of my city
for the past ten years and also play with the Camara Orchestra and with The Bras BigBand.
