Professor at the University of Arts (Orchestration)

I was recently assigned the chair of Orchestration at the “López Buchardo Music Conservatory”, belonging to the National University of Arts (Argentina). Although I am living in Belgium, I can teach the subject thanks to the wonders of virtuality. My task is to provide students with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge so that they can write works for symphony orchestra. In this way, they will have the necessary tools to become great composers and conductors in the future.

It fills me with joy and pride to teach this subject as the successor of my dear friend and teacher, Maestro Guillermo Zalcman, in this house of high studies that I love so much.
I will do my best to transmit my musical knowledge with excellence and humility, collaborating in the training of high-level musicians. Thank you very much to Dean Cristina Vázquez and to the entire university team for your trust!

Composition Award Winner 2020

I was announced recently, winner of the first honorable mention in the “Composition Contest for Symphonic Band 2020”, joinly organized by the Argentine Association of Composers, the Argentine Air Force and the Ministry of Defense of the Nation.
The work, called “Suite Libertadora”, is a three movements suite in homage to the great Argentine hero Manuel Belgrano. Each of its movements alludes to a specific event of Argentine independence.
The work was premiered by the symphonic band of the Argentine Air Force. It was a great challenge to record this work in the context of the pandemic, but the result was worth the effort.

Here’s the video, I hope you enjoy it!

Musical commissions from Australia

These last few months, I have had the great pleasure of writing, recording and producing the musical arrangements of some pieces written by the Australian composer Ai Diem Le. First, she trusted me for her piece “Messy is Love”, which was adapted for tango quintet (violin, bandoneon, piano, guitar and double bass). Then it was the turn of “Salve, estrella de mar”, which was adapted in the Argentine Zamba style, for voice, guitar and string quartet.
Stay connected, very soon we will be able to enjoy this beautiful music on all digital platforms!

New Tango project

Last year I started designing and writing a new Tango project. It is an online platform to learn to play this wonderful Argentine style on guitar, from anywhere in the world. It’s called Tango Guitar Lessons and it will contain courses for all levels, online classes, music scores to download, play along tracks, guitar arrangements and much more!

We already filmed, recorded and wrote everything together with an excellent team of professionals from Buenos Aires. Very soon, all this material will be available at www.tangoguitarlessons.com
In the meantime, I recommend you subscribe so you don’t miss the launch!
