Patricia began her studies at the Conservatoire of Zaragoza. Right after obtaining her Bmus (honours) she won four internationally renowned scholarships to pursue her education abroad at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, UK. At the RNCM Patricia gained a Masters in Solo Performance under the tutelage of C. Stone and continued her success in competitions by winning The Hilda Collens Memorial Award. In 2012 Patricia was admitted at the International Piano Academy Incontri col Maestro in Imola (Italy), where she received the advice of V. Ashkenazy. In 2014 she decided to specialize in historical piano performance at the Bartolomeo Cristofori Academy in Florence, directed by Stefano Fiuzzi.
Currently, she is a regular guest at the fortepiano series of APM Saluzzo and Villa Bossi (Italy), the French Foundations of Abbaye aux dames and Royaumont, the Geelvink Music Museum in Holland, the Chinese Baptist University of Hong Kong in China, the Historical Keyboard Society of North America, the American Musical Instrument Society, the Carolina Music Museum (now Sigal Music Museum), and the Westfield Center for Historical Keyboard Studies in the United States of America.
From a very early age she has won a number of important National and International Competitions. Included in her success is gaining the first prize in; “Ciutat de Manresa” (Barcelona), “Ciutat de Carlet” (Valencia), “Santa Cecilia” (Segovia), “Ciudad de Linares, Marisa Montiel” ( Jaén),“Ciudad de Huesca” (Huesca), “Ricard Viñes” (Lérida), “Sant Anastasi” (Lérida) “Ciudad de San Sebastián” (San Sebastian), “Compositores de España” (Vigo),“Ruperto Chapi” (Alicante),“Chopin Competition” (Manchester) and “ Duo Prize” (Manchester), “Grand Prize Virtuoso” (Salzburg), “Romantic Fortepiano Mario Calado” (Rialp), “Premio Crescendo to the best performance of Mozart’s Music” (Florence), “Premio Ferrari” (Rovereto), “Paris Music Competition- Fortepiano” (Paris), “Juventudes Musicales de España” (Jeunesses Musicales) in the I Ancient Music Competition.

She also collaborates in other Social Projects such as “One Education System” in the UK or the Youth Choirs and Orchestras in Argentina and Chile.
She participates in a large number of projects of instrumental and vocal music, having a particular interest in Spanish and unknown female composers’ music. Patricia, with the World Orchestra, has recorded a significant part of the Symphonic repertoire of Michael Nyman; she is the collaborative pianist for the Conducting Masterclasses of Colin Metters (Royal Academy of Music, London).
Patricia believes to be a complete musician one must extend themselves in many forms of art. In addition to fortepiano, she plays a wide repertoire of modern piano, including solo, chamber and orchestral music. She is also an actor, appearing in plays regularly and she helps create shows which combine music, painting and theatre. Finally, she finds great joy in giving back through teaching masterclasses.
