Gema Arias Varela
Co-founder & CEO

Piano in all flavours

A passionated, socially and environmentally engaged professional who combines the many sides of a musician : performer, teacher and project coordinator. Her formation as a pianist goes by brilliantly at the conservatories of her native town, A Coruña, where she finishes the Professional and Bachelor degrees receiving a cum laude mention in piano and obtaining the highest qualifications. Later, during her stay in the heart of Europe, she completes a Master in piano solo performance at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, acquiring great distinctions and working along with the piano masters Dominique Cornil, Zofia Lalak and Alexander Besant. The role of the piano as a solo instrument has allowed her to make the 2019 debut in Brussels of the orchestral version of the masterpiece ''Soatiña'', from one of the most prolific composers nowadays in Spain, Rogelio Groba. Over the course of her young musical career, she has been selected and invited to participate in many festivals and international concert series, such as the Yan International Festival (Liège, Belgium), Festival Groba (Ponteareas, Spain), Piano Meeting (Ourense, Spain), Festival Melide Clásica (Melide), ciclo de Novos Talentos Musicais (Santiago de Compostela, Spain), Les Ballades and Les Nocturnes from the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, between others. This intensive musical activity made her perform in many concert halls in Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium. On the other hand, she has been awarded with several international prizes, such as the first Prize of the Concours des Lauréats of the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, the Prize of Heritage Gerofi-Baschwitz (Belgium) and the International Prize of Music GianClaudio Chiais (Rome, Italy). Currently, Gema is focused on developing this pedagogical project also at the concert level, participating with non-profit associations such as DeMusicaDe, which bring music to all parts of our society. Her work with Pianoma has also been acknowledged after being nominated as the Best Teacher in Spain in Non-Formal Education at the Educa Abanca Awards.
