Laura started playing piano at the age of 4 and now she is one of the great promises of classical music in Spain, awarded with many prizes at prestigious competitions such as the First Prize at Juventudes Musicales de España and the Spanish Music Prize at Concurso Internacional de Piano Compositores de España among others. She has performed at some of the most important concert halls around the country including Auditorio Nacional de Música and Teatro Monumental, but also abroad like Solitär concert hall at Universität Mozarteum, Salzburg. Beyond her career as a classical pianist, Laura works as the composer and producer of the Original Soundtrack of the upcoming videogame Archaelund. Besides, she composes and performs original jazz-fusion music for piano. At the age of 15, Laura made her debut as a soloist performing Piano Concerto nº 20 by W.A. Mozart. She graduated with the End-of-Degree Extraordinary Prize in Conservatorio Rodolfo Halffter under the tutelage of María García and obtained her Bachelor’s Degree at Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid with piano Prof. Elena Orobio. Since 2019, Laura studies with the pianist and pedagogue Leonel Morales and currently pursues her Master’s Degree with him thanks to the scholarship that Universidad Alfonso X has granted her. Laura often broadens her education receiving masterclasses from renowned pianists and also takes advanced courses in many areas such as interpretation, composition, improvisation and jazz, both nationally and abroad: Universität Mozarteum (Salzburg), Escuela de Música Creativa (Madrid), Berklee College of Music (Valencia), etc. Among her future projects are the national tour États d’âme and a concert as soloist with the Orquesta Radio Televisión Española for the spring of 2023.
