NOTES OF LIFE is about sharing what we learn and discover through travelling, working and performing in music and education.
It’s an international project of mentoring and training which takes place in three different way:
Where did it come from?
In 2013, in Venezuela, I gave my first workshop for teachers, about music education in early years. Five years before, one of my tutors asked me: “Where do you see yourself in ten years?” I remember feeling that teaching was more than a job for me, it was a passion, perhaps already my mission. I also remember how much I loved to learn and study. I answered: “I want to become a teacher for teachers”. My tutor laughed at me, he told me I didn’t know what I was speaking about and unfortunately made me feel really uncomfortable.
I was young, I didn’t even know the proper name for that job, but I knew that was my thing. I knew I could become good at it, working hard, studying and researching, improving myself through mistakes and good experiences. So here I am, ten years after, having travelled around Europe, North Africa and South America to observe and learn, to teach and perfect my approach.
What’s the best thing I’ve learnt? To listen, to support, to share. Being a teacher (and now a mentor) is not about myself, is about my students and their needs. Also, in this way I will alway learn and keep being a student myself.
