Recitals

I organize one or two recitals a year. They are informal and I try to make them fun for everyone. I think they are important as a sharing experience. I’d like to create a community where students can play together and enjoy music not only for themselves, but also as a way to connect with others. In these recitals I also encourage them to play with friends, siblings, and parents, so some times there might be combinations with other instruments. I am a chamber music lover, since I was 15 I participated in different ensembles and duets, and later I created improvisation groups and Music Clubs in every city I’ve been through. It has always been my favorite part of music: playing with others.

Here you will find an archive with pictures from past recitals and information about coming recitals.
