Plectrum lutes and quinterns

Roots
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Study
In Buenos Aires I took two degrees in music and guitar pedagogy. I also started studying art and lute, but then I went to the Schola Cantorum, where I am currently continuing my medieval and renaissance studies.

Professional
I teach music and guitar and play in medieval and renaissance music ensembles. Occasionally I teach Spanish and take care of children. But most of the time I write programs and organize rehearsals!

Why
I love the repertoire and playing in varied ensembles. I am interested in the culture and music of ancient societies.

Elective Affinities
I am very active, spontaneous and sociable. I love being with friends, listening to traditional Mexican music, dancing (a lot), running and swimming. Random fact: I’ve gotten pretty good at dating art and buildings.
