Dedicatedly, he has been successfully diving through Jazz, RnB, Classical, Latin and Pop vocal singing, getting his experience performing all of these genres, and he has been also pushed to the limit getting resources as each style requires, and for my teaching methods as well. He really enjoys teaching methods, getting a mix between free-flowing and structured methodology is the real way to take students to the next level.

Santiago has also produced and recorded Latin jazz songs as a personal background in Colombia, Cuba and the USA. Those experiences have taken him to understand how critical teaching is, as a musical director you have to guide the team and that includes coaching sessions to take the musicians to achieve goals previously marked.
