Born into a musical family, I began studying piano in Cuba at the age of 6. After 11 years of piano studies, I pursued a Bachelor’s degree in music with a major in Orchestral Conducting and Performance from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba.

I served 3 years as resident conductor for the Holguin Symphony Orchestra and at several festivals and concerts around Cuba. In 2008 I relocated to Santiago, Chile. I worked there as a pianist and piano teacher using multiple teaching methods for almost 10 years before moving in 2017 to Austin, TX, for a Suzuki teaching position.

I am a certified teacher and member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have participated in Suzuki events in Chile, Argentina, Canada, and the United States. My experience as a pianist and a conductor gives me a unique ability to solve problems. Living and working as a musician in different countries has enriched my music knowledge of diverse repertoires and teaching methods.
