Excellent. Alberto played beautifully and the conductor was impressed that he didn't need to say anything twice as Alberto picked it up intelligently. It was great to have Alberto in the orchestra and I would recommend him highly.

In addition to his large experience and musical knowledge, Alberto has a great ability to communicate complex ideas very clearly which makes him a highly valuable teacher. He is articulate and precise, friendly and approachable as well as serious and punctual. Finally, I would emphasize also that Alberto has a very evolutive approach, he is always proactively searching for solutions and methods to help his pupils overcome any of the many issues that trumpet players face in their learning. Thus, I would highly recommend Alberto to anyone serious about music.
