Luis González is a highly active musician with a great interest and dedication in music education, adapting content and methods to the needs of the modern student. During his 15 years of teaching experience he has acquired a wealth of didactic tools covering subjects such as musical theory, harmony, composition, classical and modern piano, improvisation, chamber music, combo and ensemble groups.
The pianist’s duality as a performer and composer and his education in both classical and modern music allows him to understand and fuse the two musical languages in composition, performance and musical education.
He currently is teaching young music students of intermediate exam level in aspects of harmony, musical analysis and dictation with a clear and fresh vision that enables the student to relate to both the classical and modern music worlds. This includes studying modes, musical scores, improvisation, creativity and composition. He is interested in connecting the way which jazz and modern music students typically approach their instrument (through music score, modes, improvisation, chords, intervals, etc.. ) to the classical approach of reading music, analyzing scores, composing and writing four-part harmonies.
These aspects are also covered in his instrumental classes, giving the student a more global vision of the piano from Bach to Bruno Mars, including Keith Jarrett and Chopin. Special attention is given to aspects such as improvisation, composition, musical analysis and he also offers a pedagogical course covering the seven modes.
