Team member

Born in Barcelona, she is a recent graduate on early childhood education. The past academic year she has been in Belgium's music conservatory studing musical pedagogy as part of the Erasmus program. It has been a really good experience and a perfect opportunity to learn how to teach music to the small children. Nadia took the opportunity to sing with the chamber choir at Namur's conservatory and had the chance to work with Benoit Giraux, current conductor of the choir. She has been singing in choirs since she was 7 years old and she also plays piano, flute and guitar. Nadia's feeling is that music at all levels (playing an instrument, singing, listening) is fundamental and necessary to fill our lives.
