My name is Esther Subira, I was born in Barcelona. Music has always been one of my main interests and passions, maybe because many members of my family were musicians and music was always very present at home. So when I was 7 years old I started to study music, and from the beginning I focused on piano. Later on I graduated in Primary School Education, specialising in Music Education, and obtained Bachelor Degree in Music, specialising in Piano, Sol-fa and Music Theory. At the same time I had the chance to sing in choirs.
I’ve been working as a Music Teacher with children from different cultures, social backgrounds and needs for more than fifteen years but when I friend talked me about Music Therapy, I was fascinated. So I studied my Master’s Degree in Music Therapy at Ramon Llull Univerity in Barcelona which I finished at 2007. From then I’ve been working with a wide kind of population and settings: children with special education needs, children with cancer and their families, children at hospitals, adults with physical and learning disabilities, and adults with mental illness, BESD children… in Barcelona, London, and in USA where I was visiting music therapy settings for two summers.
In my spare time I like to enjoy nature, trekking, spend time with friends, good food and travel.
