Building an inner sound. Step by step.

How do I study better?

Conducting is one of the most mysterious learning process. I have had literally hundreds of students and all of them are unique. The main thing is to come prepared with a solid instrumental badckround and a keen sense of curiousity.

Since november 2020, I have been named Music Director of the OCV Chamber Orchestra in Valdivia, Chile.
It is an honour to lead such a distinguished group of musicians in my country. We will work very hard to expand its regional presence, as well as its educational outreach activities.

Due to the extremely complicated Covid situation, we have decided to postpone the masterclasses after until August 2021, in order to have a more stable travelling environment. Here are the new dates:

The ensamble. A perfect learning tool.

We have worked hard to create a unique ensamble, with world class players, in order to smoothen out the difficult transition between conducting two pianos and a full symphony orchestra. Our team has no limits as to repertoire is concerned. We are going to be studying  some of the XX Century masters such as Bartok, Stravinsky and Mahler, as well as any pieces considered as milestones of the symphonic repertoire.

Premium infrastructure

The success of Pasantia is based upon a unique environment of modernity, history, architectonic beauty and high living standards. All our students will be provided with a 24 h access to our brand new library.

Learn with the best. Each year we look for the most renown conducting teachers in Europe.
