Between 1990 and 2002, I studied music at the Plurinational Conservatory of Music, La Paz. My piano teachers were Gilda Ormachea, Grace Rodriguez and Sarah Ismael. Between 1995 and 1998, I participated in the Jazz and Improvisation workshops conducted by Martin Joseph. Martin Joseph introduced my to mindfullness as well.
