Music is not a choice. It is a vocation. Just as some people communicate with movements, words, others connect with the universe through sounds, rhythms and the voice.

Music has always been in my family’s blood. On my mother’s side, my great-grandmother Rosalía Garitano, was an opera singer, and she travelled Europe doing concerts. On my father’s, Lluís Millet, was the founder of the Orfeó Català, and he dedicated his life to strengthening the Catalan music.

Piano was my first pasion. Between games and fun, studying music was my favourite thing to do. Time goes different when you are a musician. At the age of 13, I started to sing. I sing home, at bars, theatres, I perform, I sing for the whole world. Soul, brazilian music and R&B are the rhythms that make my heart beat faster.

I studied to be a singer and a piano player at the music school Escola de Música Moderna de Badalona, and later on, at the Taller de Música de Barcelona and with the singer Carme Canela. Music requires hours of dedication and study, that’s why I moved to New York, where I studied jazz y modern music in different schools, hand to hand with musicians such as Nancy Marano, Mercedes Hall, Jean McClelland and Justin Stoney.
Since music guides me, I ended up in Brazil, where I studied brazilian music composition and brazilian popular music interpretation, with great musicians such as Chico Pinheiro, Fatima Guedes, Paula Santoro and Zé Luiz Mazziotti.

In 2014, I graduated as a singing teacher at the prestigious school in New York, New York Vocal Coaching. In 2015, she took the Rhythm & Blues Specialized Voice course at Berklee College of Music Online. In 2016 I studied the Professional Diploma of Contemporary Singing Teacher at The Voice College in London, England. I am a level 3 certified teacher from the Modern Vocal Training Institute, acquiring the degree of Advanced Vocal Coach. In 2021 I obtained the European certificate in Vocal Health First Aid.

The dance can never stop. For this reason, in March 2022 I obtained the certification in Manual Laryngeal Manipulation Therapies, with Stephen King of the Voice Care Center Institute in London.

There is only one thing that I like better than singing. Singing together. Perceiving the evolution of a student who learns that in order to sing, more than a beautiful voice is necessary. I lead children choirs and adults choirs with passion, I teach voice lessons and I perform with my music bands.

This is the story of my life, and I invite you to come singing with me.
