Juan Fernando has been working in music for the past 20 years, with vast experience in the performance of several instruments as well as music production, engineering, technology and teaching.

He is the Head of Music Production and Technology at Escuela de Música at Universidad de las Américas (UDLA) in Quito, Ecuador. He created the first Ableton Live course included in an official curriculum map in the country. Additionally, he teaches various music production, music technology and engineering courses for performance, music composition and music production majors, and has been invited as a speaker to several academic and cultural congresses. He is involved in several research projects that rescue and reassess Ecuadorian traditional music.
Juan Fernando discovered Ableton Live in 2006 (version 6), and since then he has been using it as one of his main musical instruments and music production tools. During his creative voyage these past years he incorporated Push 2 and Max for Live to multiply and enhance his performance skills.
He teaches Ableton Live, Push 2 and Max for Live at beginner and intermediate levels in large group classes and gives online one-to-one custom classes and tutorials for advanced Ableton Live users. Recently, he developed a new music production and technology curriculum based on using Ableton Live as a musical instrument and including the use of technology to assess creativity.
