He has learnt from the amazing artists: Angel „Cepillo“ Sánchez, Yuvisney Aguilar Rojas, Pedro Pablo Mireles, Manley El Piri Lopez, Calixto Oviedo, Yomar Amador Morejón. During his internships in Cuba he studied and learnt from the leading cuban musicians (El Panga, Marvin Diz, Rodney Barretto, Guilermo del Toro Varela, Luis Chacon Koky, Riveron, Maximino).
