«Music is a moral law.It gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good and just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.»
Sergio Gumbao Tur (Ibiza, 1979) Spanish musician and Music Teacher who plays mainly the soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone.
I began my musical studies at the age of thirteen as a student of the Belgian composer Raymond Andres, who was taught by the famous Swedish composer Jean Sibelius. During my early years of study I focused mainly on classical training and later continued my studies primarily with Jazz music . At the age of seventeen I left the Ibiza to continue my musical studies and graduated as a teacher, specialising in music, in the city of Palma on the neighbouring island of Mallorca. Once I finished my studies at university I returned to the Ibiza to work as a musician, music teacher and continue studying music both at home and away from Ibiza. During these twenty-five years being a musician, and fifteen teaching music, I have enjoyed playing thousands of concerts in the national and international scene meeting some incredible people.
I have taught seminars by musicians of the stature of Paquito D’Rivera (winner of fourteen Grammy awards), Antonio Sanchez (Grammy award winner drummer and current drummer for Pat Metheny…), Oscar Stagnaro (awarded with four Grammy awards), Diego Urcola (trumpeter for Wayne Shorter…), Molly Duncan (saxophonist for Dire Straits…), Marc Vinci (saxophonist for Frank Sinatra…), Latino Blanco (saxophonist for the group “Presuntos Implicados” and conductor for the SedaJazz Collective…), David Pastor (trumpet player for Michael Buble …), Toni Belenguer (trombonist for Michael Brecker Quindectet…), Albert Sanz (pianist for Al Foster…), Abe Rabade (pianist for Kurt Rosenwinkel…), Jesus Santandreu (disciple of Joe Henderson…), Dani Nel.lo (saxophonist for “Los Rebeldes”…), Dario Eskenazi (pianist for Gato Barbieri…), Carlos Martin (trumpet player for the Mingus Big Band…), amongst others.
