He began to study music at the age of 6 years old. He began his formal music studies at the Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Valencia and then continued his education at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague (Netherlands) and the Reina Sofía School of Music in Madrid. He studied a master’s degree in Musical Analysis and Performance at the University of Oviedo.
He has been a member of the Orquesta de Córdoba and interim professor at the Conservatorio Superior de Córdoba. During his time in the orchestra he was president of the enterprise committee and the health and safety committee. Due to an occupational illness he was forced to leave the performance world. He went on to deliver coaching and later studied a master’s degree in Neuro-linguistic Programming.
Currently, he’s the director of the Instituto Gabou de Música y Desarrollo, an organization dedicated to using music in areas of non-formal education. As well as his intense work coaching musicians, both individuals and groups, he has also studied psychosocial problems in professional orchestras. In particular, he’s interested in “harassment in the music world” and “burnout”. He is currently working on changes in organizational culture as a way of improving psychosocial issues in orchestras and musical associations.
Along with Guillermo Dalia, he’s developed the concept of E.M.A.® (Entrenamiento Mental para la Actuación) which translates as Mental Training for Performance.
