Neus Fernández

Directora de PerkImBa

My profession is linked to music, dance and theater. My vision and concerns in the field of pedagogy are always interdisciplinary.

 

I am graduated in piano, percussion and pedagogy at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Barcelona.

 

Graduated in Dalcroze Rhythmic from the Jaques-Dalcroze Institute in Geneva, Switzerland.
 

For more than 20 years I have been a music teacher at the CSD Dance and ESAD Theater Higher Schools of the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona, ​​specialized in Dalcroze Rhythm in Performing Arts.

 

In 2009 I created, together with Thierry Hochstätter, the world of PerkImBa, a project that continues to grow with each project we carry out.

 

I teach courses for teacher training both at home and abroad. What interests me most is giving tools to teachers so that they grow as teachers.

 

Multi-instrumentalist, I link the world of interpretation and improvisation.

What I am passionate about is working as a team, directing projects with members of the PerkImBa Company and developing creativity through rhythm and movement. We do with what we are and with what we have.
