My name is Onis, I am a singer, pianist and music teacher. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Musicology, graduated with honors from the University of the Arts ISA in Havana, Cuba. I´ve been theaching music as a professional teacher since 2009, teaching Musical Analysis, Harmony and Music Theory at the Amadeo Roldán Conservatory of Music of Havana (Pre-University), teaching at the University of Arts while coursing Master Degree in Musicology, and teaching music in serveral schools from Cuba, Mexico and United States.
I have been teaching music for more than thirteen years and during this time I have had the opportunity to teach professional and amateur students, from 4 years old children to 65 years old adults. I´ve taught from Piano and Voice, Choir and Vocal groups performance, Polyphony and Counterpoint, Harmony and Solfeggio, Music Theory and Music History and Musical Analysis.
I started studying music at the age of 7 and since then I have performed diverse genres and styles of international music in several stages, bands and shows, perfoming salsa, cumbia, merengue, cuban son, chachacha, bachata, bolero, jazz, bossa nova, samba, reggae, disco, pop, country, blues, ballad, reggaeton, korean pop, hindi, smooth jazz, soundtracks, Disney, etc. My musical influences range from the great performers of Classical, Cuban, Brazilian, American and International music singers and musicians such as Elena Burke, Argelia Fragoso, Elis Regina, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Freddy Mercury, Diana Krall, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, etc.
All that influence is reflected in my personalized teaching methods adapted to the needs and musical tastes of my students. I love to experiment with my students and take their interpretation of music to the next level, on the piano or with their voices, together we create a space where their essence, their personality and their unique voices can be heard; what is authentic in them can be expressed, made visible and listened through their performance from the scene at Memorial Music School to the stages of the world.
More about me? I love to learn, read, travel, eat!, listen to music, play and sing music from all over the world, study the phonetics of the languages I sing, I am passionate about world history and culture, and music allows me to know all that diversity, all those essences.
