My teaching method adapts to the goals of the student, its interests, capabilities, experience, background, and personality.
I am a pianist, piano professor, chamber musician and vocal coach with ten years of experience in the field. I have worked with students from all levels and ages for the past ten years in Mexico, US, and Canada.
I was a Fulbright Scholar from 2012-2014 and won a grant from the Veracruz State for academic excellence. I won many competitions including second prize at the Chamber Music National Competition in Mexico City, first and second prizes at CSU concerto competition, first place in the Concerto Competition with Xalapa Symphony Orchestra, and two-time finalist at the "Maria Clara Cullell" International piano competition in San Jose Costa Rica. I was a recipient of the Manuel M. Ponce prize for best chamber music-group at the Chamber Music Festival in Aguas Calientes, Mexico and a prize winner in chamber music at Kiwanis Festival in London, Canada.
I am passionate and committed to teaching and collaborating with singers, instrumentalists, and conductors. I worked as a full-time collaborative pianist for four years at the Institute of Music of Veracruz State. I performed concertos with Xalapa Symphony Orchestra and CSU Symphony orchestra and has participated as a collaborative pianist of the Veracruz State Youth Orchestra, CSU Symphony Orchestra, and CU Symphony Orchestra. I have performed at international chamber music festivals such as the Académie Musicale de Morges in Switzerland, Orvieto Musica in Italy, Bowdoin International Music Festival in the US, San Miguel de Allende Chamber Music Festival and Aguas Calientes Chamber Music Festival in Mexico.
