Teaching since:
2010

I'm a music composer/songwriter originally from Ecuador, who is also a life-long ice figure skater. I graduated with a masters degree from Berklee College of Music Valencia, in the Scoring for Film & TV program. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Contemporary Music back in Ecuador, as well I I studied piano and Portuguese (as part of my love for Brazilian Popular Music).

I'm teaching again because I'd love to contribute with my skills and connect with new people in their learning experience.

Ice skating taught me discipline, patience and perseverance in life. As I my body reached injuries from years of skating, I'm not training anymore, I hope to translate my passion for this sport through teaching and supporting other skaters. All ages welcome!

My love for songwriting and singing is combined with languages. In our language classes we will learn from culture, history and research of the customs of different south American countries. We can also develop project that involve learning songs in Spanish (and/or Portuguese). We can also practice a lot of conversation about your favorite topics!

Film Scoring · In studio

Belen is patient, skilled, and friendly. She makes the class fun and practical. It’s an added bonus that she can explain musical concepts to me in both English and Spanish.

Spanish · In studio

Our boy Finn is beginning 5th grade and needs to continue practicing his Spanish with a native speaker. Belen was great with him and he's looking forward to his weekly sessions.
