My coaching can include lesson techniques but it attempts to go far beyond what you get from usual lessons. My aim is to defeat the barriers you are having that are stopping you from improving in the way you want. It is personal work and every musician is different from another. My work is to understand you and help to improve your own musical potential. My background knowledge is my own experience of more than 20 years playing Stick concerts in many different situations including in bands, solo concerts, tours and recordings.

Private Skype sessions.

Gustavo have nice compositions and we had been working under the “Stickists Training Artist Project”, a series of meeting where we work not only with the Stick technique but all the related thing associate to artist developing including sound management, song constructions, live performances and album recording, which is finally released today.

I’m so proud to be a guest in a TED conference.
As they define themselves, TED is “a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.”
This conferences are intended to introduce people who can influence other people in some way. The talk are recorded and included in a big database to share in the world. In my personal life, I have been working with music for more than 20 years trying to do it with passion and a clean spirit. The Stick has been my language but at the end, there is a human being trying to contact other humans being. I think it is the first time a stick player have the chance to talk to large audience in TED. I did my best offering my honest point of view about music, dreams and how to try to make the difference with just one single musical note.

All the best,

Es un gran honor ser uno de los invitados para una de las conferencias TED.
Tal como ellos se definen a si mismos, TED es “una comunidad global, dando la bienvenida a personas de todas las disciplinas y la cultura que buscan una comprensión más profunda del mundo. Creemos apasionadamente en el poder de las ideas para cambiar actitudes, vidas y, en última instancia, el mundo.”
Estas conferencias intentan presentar a personas que puedan influir en otras personas. Son grabadas e incluidas en una gran base de datos para compartir en el mundo. En mi caso personal, he estado trabajando con la música por mas de 20 años, intentando hacerlo con pasión y espíritu limpio. El Stick ha sido mi lenguaje pero al final, somos seres humanos intentado conectarnos con otros seres humanos. Creo que es la primera vez que un stickista tiene la chance de hablar para grandes audiencias en TED. Intenté dar lo mejor de mi ofreciendo mi honesto punto de vista acerca de la música, los sueños y como hacer la diferencia con solo una nota musical.
