Diego Tejedor - Bouble bass
He is a specialised double bass teacher in the early stages of training. He worked during 13 years at the Ángel Barrios Professional Conservatory of Granada, whose students currently occupy music stands in Spanish and European orchestras. Then, he moved to the Superior Conservatory of Music of Aragon where he is part of the educational team of Didáctica de la Cuerda, a pioneering project in Spain where they train future teachers by using a practical methodology combining it with teaching in the Professional Conservatory of Music of Huesca. Such task leads him to participate, for several years, in the “Pirineos Júnior” courses in Canfranc and “DaCapo” of Viznar.
He is the author of “Contrabajo Exprés”, a series of books written for their use in class from which we can highlight some comments in their prologues: “I know it will mean a very necessary impulse in the improvement of our teaching of the double bass” (Jaime Robles, soloist of the ONE), “I could verify his great degree of personal implication, musical talent and passion for art, as well as his high teaching capacity. At the same time, I could honestly admire the huge technical and musical achievements acquired by his students, united in a surprising discipline and desire for learning” (Javier Sapiña, soloist of the Valencia Orchestra)
His interest for the tango leads him to be part of different musical ensembles among which we can highlight “Cameratango”, “Tango a Través”, “Iberotango” and “Graciela Jiménez Quintet”. Member of the orchestras: Juvenil Iberoamericana CAP-UNESCO and Joven de Andalucía as well as collaborator of the ONE, Granada Orchestra, actor/double bass player in the BarbaryEte and Animasur companies.
The teachers that have influenced him the most in his musical career are Jaime Robles, Giuseppe Ettore and Thomas Martin. His inquisitiveness for updating and knowing the most recent performing tendencies lead him to study a Soloist Performing Master with the teacher Luis Cabrera.
