The Spanish Golden Age nourished the music scene of southern Europe with excellent music. Great composers, organists, and singers emerged at the dawn of the 16th century.

Although this sociological conquest of music had its decline, the legacy that we have left of that music is absolutely a treasure that has made us understand the importance of sound art in the social evolution of the Western world.

Through this layer of thought, we want to offer a vision – perhaps expository – of the value of Spanish medieval and Renaissance music in an experiential course where the sung music is a value to delve into the beauty of sound and poetry.

Be welcome!

Juan F. Ballesteros

Musicologist, music teacher and piano accompanist.

She was born in Ibiza where she began her musical education at the Professional Music School. When she earned the title of Professional Piano Teacher, she moved to Madrid where she earned a Music Teaching degree and a Bachelor in Music History and Sciences (Musicology) from the Universidad Complutense. At the same time, she pursued her piano studies further with the concert pianists Rafael Sebastiá and Lydia Rendón later on.

Choirmaster and orchestra conductor, vocal coach and music producer.

At 7 years old, my parents, with no training or musical background, had the intuition, the desire, the inertia to sign me up to take music lessons. For me, I was fortunate to receive this gift that has accompanied me and will accompany me for the rest of my life.


Madra Rua – Organic Accommodation

Located along the Wild Atlantic Way and overlooking the Trawbreaga Bay and the Isle of Doagh, Madra Rua is the perfect place to set up your base camp to explore the delights of the Inishowen peninsula and its wild scenic coastline, part of the North West Region of Ireland, the most northerly area in the country.

Madra Rua
is another way of saying Sionnach (fox in Irish language) what recalls the original name of our townland of Ráth Sionnaigh (Rashenny) which means The Fox Fort.

The rooms available for the workshop students will be assigned in order of registration.
