With more than 15 years of teaching experience, I was a winner and only representative from Venezuela at the YouTube Symphony Orchestra 2011, which had it's live broadcast from the Sydney Opera House and it's the most viewed online concert to date, gathering 33+ million viewers.
Born in Merida, Venezuela, I started the violin at the age of 7 in the System of Venezuelan Youth Orchestras, where later on he was appointed concertmaster, violin teacher, sectional leader and guest conductor, receiving violin conducting and pedagogy lessons at the same time.
During my formation as a violinist, I received lessons from acclaimed violinists such as: Maurice Hasson, Virginie Robilliard, Alexis Cardenas, Philip Setzer, David Geber, Daniel Phillips, Dmitri Berlinski, Alex Kerr, Giora Schmidt y Kazuhiro Takagi. As well as chamber music coaching from Cuarteto Latinoamericano, festivals in Venezuela, Colombia, Brasil and Aruba.
As composer, the Classical Music Institute comissioned a work for two violins, viola, cello, bass and guitar titled Tema y Consecuencia and was premiered at the CMI summer program in San Antonio in June 2018.
My latest composition titled Serenade for Strings: A Ludwig Souvenir was premiered on February 2020 by the CMI to honor Beethoven’s 250th anniversary.
At my growing YouTube channel, I'm sharing violin tutorials and performances for the online community, and his project MangataM, which aims for content creation, original music and audiovisual production in YouTube and Instagram, has 3 of his compositions premiered online as well.
I was the first violinist graduated from the Universidad de los Andes in Venezuela, under violinist Simon Gollo, and also holds a Master's degree in Violin Performance from the Pennsylvania State University under violinist Max Zorin.
