A studio is un estudio is a studio, or is it?
The crisp season of friendship and love has us reflecting on that higher love - our connection with music and art - and really examining our studio project and school and what really makes us different- we're not just a teaching studio, we are a place where cultures meet and artistic inquiry is alive and well!
There's been a lot of soul searching on these whys around here- and looking back on the past two years with our first album, The Great Cuban Suite, and the continuing journey of our second album and our collaboration with other wonderful artists in this town- and we've thought of a few things that are really defining what we are doing in Miami- and want to keep on connecting with those who love it!
To be frank, a lot of it is about Miami and the unique opportunity it brings us- especially as Latin artists- to unite and to be truly artist-led in every sense. So here are some of the points that we think make our project an enduring part of this town...and we hope you will join us as we create these experiences and bring them to you live!
We don't just teach, we cultivate musical artistry
We design our music programs around Miami's impressive cultural tapestry, celebrating the richness of Miami’s cultural diversity, and creating experiences that go beyond notes on a page. Students have access to repertoire that they just don't get at other schools.
We are flexible enough to place students on a serious or fun track
Our programs can be tailored for devotion or pleasure. We are happy to cater to both serious musicians and those seeking a fun musical experience. Whatever your goal, we have the perfect musical program for you.
We are Musicians, Not Just Teachers
As working artists, we are constantly engaged with production, curation, and composition of new music. There is truly a difference with instructors who are not only skilled educators but also actively engaged in creating new music. We don't just teach; we live and breathe the art of music.
we advance Latin music and break cultural silos
Our musical explorations unite artists and transcend boundaries, allow diverse cultures to converge, and still lend homage to our Latin American heritage. Our projects explore the unique ways that students can access many cultures, and reach across the cultural silos that often form in a less diverse city.
we bring you MasterClass Programs, Guest Collaborators and Workshops
Our Masterclass Program is designed for the enthusiastic learner, and is an opportunity to delve deeper into the intricacies of music under the guidance of seasoned professionals. Our guest collaborators bring fresh perspectives, ensuring that your musical journey is not only educational but also inspiring and constantly evolving.
Beyond notes: we constantly hone for Excellence:
Our carefully curated curriculum materials are sourced from the renowned Royal Conservatory of Music and the Cuban School of the Guitar. We are also proud participants in the Florida State Music Teachers Association events. By ensuring these opportunities are available, we uphold the highest standards of musical education. Your journey with us is backed by a commitment to excellence and professionalism. Our commitment to quality education is reflected in the materials we use.
We Collaborate Beyond Boundaries
Alberto Puerto Music is more than a music school; it's a collaborative space where music intersects with various art forms. Our multidisciplinary approach brings together musicians, visual artists, performers, and more, creating a vibrant community that fosters creativity and innovation.
