I am a Concert Pianist and expert Piano Teacher. I earned a M.A. in Musical Composition and Piano Performance from Rey Juan Carlos University of Madrid, a M.A. in Teacher Training from Complutense University of Madrid and B.A. in Piano Performance from Madrid Royal Conservatory of Music.

I have won more than twenty prizes in both national and international piano competitions and I was named laureate for my professional trajectory by the Havana University of Art.
As a concert pianist, I have performed worldwide (Spain, Germany, Italy, England, and Cuba). I have also been a featured soloist accompanied by Symphony Orchestras in Europe and America.

Over the past 15 years, I have combined my work as a concert pianist with my love of teaching. I have taught in Cuba and Spain, where I developed music curricula and numerous educational projects. Currently, I teach and compose in Los Angeles, pursuing both my love for creativity work and developing students.

I highly recommend Jennifer. My daughter has been studying with her for almost one year. She's just 7 and we were so happy with her progress. More importantly, my daughter loved her piano lessons. Jennifer is caring, responsible and a great teacher. Good luck in LA Jennifer.
