In 2019 he moved to San Sebastián (Euskadi) to study the master's degree in musical interpretation at Musikene (Higher Music Center of the Basque Country) under the teachings of Javier Azanza, Lorenzo Ferrándiz and Jabi Alonso.
During this period, he collaborated with the Euskadi Orchestra, the Bilbao Symphony Orchestra, the Aurora Festival Orchestra (Stockholm) and the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra, where he was also part of the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and received valuable lessons from Sam Walton and David Jackson, musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra, thus performing in numerous venues in both Spain and France.
