Yaremi Ledesma Alvarez is the organiser of the AAMF ‘Young Hands and Voices‘ concert on 18th November at Al Qattara Centre. She was born in Cuba where she studied music from the age of 7 at the School of Arts. She started learning the piano, an instrument that became her passion afterwards. In the final year of her Music Performance Degree she studied double bass and classical singing.
After earning her qualification as a classical performer she joined the Music Teaching Faculty at the Superior Institute of Pedagogy where she graduated in 2003 and worked as an Assistant Professor for the subjects of Choir, Orchestra and Music History. She then started to learn the basics of several instruments to be able to support the students during rehearsals. She has composed music for radio shows in her home country and performed in various festivals as a soloist and as parts of musical ensembles.
She came to the UAE in 2005 as a performer, playing in several venues across the country but mainly based herself in Al Ain. Early after her arrival she joined the teaching forces as a piano, voice and theory teacher. She now owns her own Kindermusik program, enrolling and teaching children from 0- 7 years old.
Yaremi is currently the Instrumental Music Service Coordinator for Al Ain Academy, where she works as a Music and Spanish Teacher and is currently balancing work and study finishing her Master in Performing Arts.
She enjoys transmitting her passion for musical performance into her students. The ‘Young Hands and Voices‘ concert is a way to recognise all of the effort that these students from several schools across Al Ain put into their music practice every day. Please note that this concert starts at the earlier time of 6 pm.
Don’t miss is – it’s going to be memorable.
