Learning is one of the most important things in my life. I like to learn all kinds of things: languages, music, writing and other things. What fascinates me the most is the learning process: that is, ‘learning how to learn.’ I love sharing my insights on the process of learning, and to help others become better learners. My purpose is to empower people to develop their potential and achieve their learning aspirations.
I’m a piano teacher. I help people to learn how to play piano both in-person and online (www.altopianista.com). I’ve created most of the learning materials I use in my lessons, including piano tutorials, theory notes, and exercises. I also take advantage of digital resources such as websites, apps, and e-books.
I published a series of graded readers for Spanish learners under the pen name Paco Ardit (www.spanishnovels.net). It is a series of short stories with difficulty levels that range from beginner to advanced. In these stories I put into practice one of the fundamentals of skill building: start with small steps. The easiest ones are written using short sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. The beginners’ titles only use simple present tense. The more advanced levels become more difficult gradually, with longer and more complex sentences and additional tenses.
I also have a blog in Spanish where I share my thoughts and experiences in learning and skill-builiding (www.aprendercosas.com). There you will find articles on learning projects focused on arts, music, languages and more.
I believe human beings are born to learn and improve, enjoy life and make positive contributions to the world. We all have a tremendous learning potential, and my mission is to help everyone unfold it.
