I teach drums in Denmark now and besides teaching drums in Portugal, Sardinia, Netherlands and Spain in the past, I have travelled Europe and US to present my work "Silence in Music" including a lecture at Steinhardt University in New York.
After a lecture at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, I have been asked to write an article for
the Finnish Journal of Music Education that you can find scrolling down this page.
List of academies and institutions that have gladly hosted my lectures and seminars:
GIJON MUSIC CONSERVATORY, Gijón, 2018 (SP) - STEINHARDT UNIVERSITY Manhattan, New York 2017 (US) - SIBELIUS ACADEMY, University of Arts Helsinki, 2017 (FI) - HØGSKULEN PÅ VESTLANDET University of Applied Science Bergen, 2017 (NO) - LA CASA DEL JAZZ Ponferrada, 2016/2017 (SP) - TONLISTARSKOLIFIH Jazz Academy Reykjavík, 2016 (IS) - NUORO JAZZ SEMINARS Sardegna, 2016 (IT) - RHYTHMIC MUSIC CONSERVATORY Copenaghen, 2015/2017 (DK).
In 2017 I have been awarded within the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program funded by the European Union. (click here)
I wrote a business plan about music education and jazz academy project; once the papers got accepted I travelled to Spain to work alongside my music comrade and ever since friend Gio Yañez.
He is the director and founder of "La Casa del Jazz" (click here) music academy in Ponferrada, northern region in Spain. Thankfully I could get insights on management, project planning and development, marketing and other skills that would have otherwise been missed.
The collaboration established with this institution have promoted future artistic collaborations hence expanding both parts´ professional network.
Last but not least I proudly established, together with Angelo Palmas director of Nuoro Jazz Seminars and Giò Yañez a long term artistic connection between Ponferrada Jazz Festival and Nuoro Jazz Festival in Sardinia.
Since 2018 both festivals awards their most talented students of the year offering them an artistic exchange, sending them to the festival partners abroad, to learn, experience and spread music and knowledge.
