I am a musician from Barcelona, Spain who has been teaching and playing music for more than 20 years.
I started my studies in classical piano and percussion in Barcelona and Girona's conservatories finishing my degree in Cuba in 1997 at the Instituto Superior de Arte in La Havana.
At age 14 I began to take jazz piano lessons and jazz drums. At the same time I got my first hammered dulcimer and learned by myself how to play it applying my percussion and piano skills.
I;ve taught in several music schools and workshops in Spain and US such as: Taller de Musics (Barcelona, Spain), Oriol Martorell (Barcelona), Seattle Conservatory, Seattle Waldorf School, Potomac Music Festival (Shepherdstown, WV), Hammered Dulcimer Rendez-vous (Sandy, OR), Dusty Strings (Seattle, WA).. and many private lessons.
I also compose music and lead my band Marina A Project which has been invited to play at festivals and platforms like: Ballard Jazz Walk, Earshot, KNKX..
Always playing music as a freelance and band leader since I was born in a musicians family.
Improvisation on the keyboard for master degree students of Dalcroze pedagogy.
Practical piano for modern singers. Reading, comprehending and playing chords in different grooves and styles.
With the great cuban professor Ms. Teresita Junco
Brilliant musician and amazing teacher.
I asked Marina to help me understand how she is able to lift her playing above the constraints of the chord changes, while still maintaining the integrity of the composition. She had better answers than any teacher I've asked that question of. We worked on the concepts she shared together, and she gave me exercises I have been working with to integrate the new knowledge. I highly recommend lessons with her!+ Read More
