My Mission

High Quality Piano Lessons

Lessons are tailored to suit each pupil, helping them learn the piano through the music that they love to play. Lessons are fun, engaging and well-structured.

Whether you are a complete beginner or are interested in taking graded piano exams I can help you succeed. I have many years experience performing and developing my ability as a pianist, having studied a "Creación Musical" (Musical Creation) degree in Madrid.

After relocating to Belfast I started a full-time job as a keyboard player in a wedding band called The Professionals, alongside my private piano lessons. My work as a professional pianist enables me to really help my students rapidly progress on the piano, developing the skills and knowledge required to play with confidence.

My Experience as a Teacher

Hello, I am a professional musician. My history with the music starts with my dad, he introduced me to the guitar when I was 10, and I quite liked it, but the music was just a hobby by that time. It wasn't until the age of 16 that I decided to start playing piano, my vision about music completely changed and became a passion to me.

I started just taking what I learned from the guitar and applied it to the piano. One day I met someone that showed me the G blues scale. I learnt how to improvise, and so I started to develop my improvisation in other genres like pop, rock, jazz, etc.

Improvising made me feel great, because I could create my own music without a paper in front of me, and that is one of the things that I want to show my students. Improvising is the base of composing for those who love creating their own songs, and you don't need to know much music theory to create your own songs.

More About My Lessons

I think the best way to learn music is playing with other musicians. I have been playing with other bands occasionally, but The Professionals is the band that I play with 95% of the gigs that I do.

These past years I have been teaching friends and family, all of them beginners, so I tried helping them to understand the piano in two basic parts: Chords and Scales. With those 2 things, they could play any song that they wanted.

As a musician what I love the most is to play with a band, but I love teaching too. I love seeing how my students keep improving and enjoy music as much as I do.

I am able to respond quickly to student enquiries, helping new students to find a time slot that works well for both of us. I also work hard to ensure new students feel at ease during their first lesson, it is okay to be a little nervous.
