I began my music career at age 18 in Monterrey Mexico at Escuela Superior de Musica y Danza. I was a voice performance major and took piano as my secondary instrument but divided my effort equally into both. I took private instruction, music theory, ear training, choir, solfege, and I participated in the choir for a production of the opera Carmen.The music program gave us enough time to practice our instruments so I was able to practice an average of 6 hours every day.
I took private instruction in both instruments with very renowned teachers including: Carlos Guzman, Mauricio Ponce, Fernando Davila, Teresa Tamez, Cristina Velazco, Kathia Santos and Graciela Suarez. After completing my third year at ESDMD I decided that I wanted to study abroad and applied to several universities in the US. I transferred to UTSA on August 2008 and continued my degree there for four more years.
I began as a voice major at UTSA but at the end of my freshman year decided to take piano as my principal instrument. I studied voice with Dr.Gary Mabry on my freshman year and with Dr. Susan Olson on my sophomore and junior years. I took Piano with Dr. Kassandra on my freshman, sophomore and junior years and gave a sophomore recital where I performed pieces by Bach,Haydn, Chopin and Bartok. I also prepared a trio piece by Bruch which I performed for my chamber music class together with a violinist and a violist.
After taking a summer of organ lessons with Dr.David Heller I decided to enroll in Organ and Harpsichord with Dr. David Eaton for a semester at UTSA.
I graduated in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
I have taken piano lessons with professor Sophia Gilmson from UT Austin for a year.
I am currently taking jazz lessons from Dr. Brent Watkins and will begin harpsichord lessons with Dr. David Heller on February 2013.
