Project description


My name is Sebastian Garzon. I am drummer composer and educator.  


I grew up in the Colon City and have had different learning opportunities throughout the years, starting in 2009 at the National Conservatory of Music, and the University of Panama.  


In 2009, I went to my first Panama Jazz Festival and, from that moment, I fell in love with the freedom that the music offered and I wanted to learn it.

New England Conservatory ( NEC ) Boston Massachusetts, is the oldest independent school of music in United States, and its Jazz Program is one of the most reputable in the country.

NEC has an acceptance rate of 27.8 percent. In which only 3% percent is Hispanic or Latino musicians.     

I auditioned during Jazz festival, and after four years trying to get into this school, I was accepted with a partial scholarship to study in the Jazz Performance Program starting on August 2016 .

Project history


In 2012, at the Danilo Perez Foundation, I began my formal jazz studies. I had many opportunities to learn and play with different local and international teachers such as Santi Dibriano, Osvaldo Ayala, Reggie Boyce, Luis Carlos Perez, Danilo Perez, Tom Patitucci, George Garzone among others.  

When I got into the Danilo Perez Foundation, I began as a student and volunteer teaching in Panama City, Colon, and Santiago. I confirmed that music works as an agent of social change; today, I am the professor of music ensemble and drums for the Children's program.  


So I´m asking that you to Ayudame A Llegar!!!
