Uri Sala

PYP Music teacher

I am a musician and pedagogue from Barcelona with first-hand experience of the benefits of an international education. My schooling happened in four different languages. An international exchange program gave me the chance to attend senior high school in the United States. This started my personal as well as professional worldwide journey, during which I have studied, performed and worked in Spain, USA, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany and, since 2010, Norway.

I hold degrees in music performance, composition, musicology and pedagogy, as well as an MA in music theory. I have over 20 years’ international experience as a pedagogue in all academic levels, from kindergarten to MA-level college. I am also an active recording and touring musician, and I play in several bands spanning a wide array of styles: jazz, pop, rock, latin, etc.

Music-making is for me ultimate holistic activity, unique in its power to engage several skills simultaneously. In my lessons I combine active music making with reflection. My role as a music teacher is to provide a fun and safe environment that encourages children to explore and develop their musical skills and identity.
