He began his studies of composition at the National Conservatory of Music with Edgar Valcárcel, theoretical courses with Seiji Asato, instrumentation with Aurelio Tello, orchestration with Celso Garrido-Lecca and piano with the concertist Rosa América Silva Wagner. He then followed a course of the Secretary of State for Culture of São Paulo in Brazil, in 1982, to study with Cláudio Santoro and José-Antonio Almeida Prado.

In 1985 he received a scholarship from the French government to carry out his postgraduate studies in Paris. He studied musical analysis with Alain Louvier (National Conservatory of Music of Boulogne-Billancourt) and Betsy Jolas (National Conservatory of Music of Paris) and composition with Allain Gaussin. In 1987 he obtained a scholarship from the “Nadia and Lili Boulanger International Foundation” and continued his training with Michel Philippot, receiving the advice of Maurice Ohana.

Upon his definitive return to Peru in 1990, he taught at the National Conservatory of Music in Lima, where he was appointed Professor of Composition and Cultural Courses, assuming in 1996 the position of Head of the Department of Composition and Musicology of that institution.

In 1998 he settled permanently in France, where he finished his Bachelor of Music and carried out a Master in Musicology at the University of La Sorbonne in Paris. He has worked as a music teacher for the Academy of Versailles and the faculty of the Municipality of Paris.
