Fernando's story

Fernando runs the musical programme at Copperfield, where each student has the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, and regular concerts are hosted in our magnificent auditorium. Fernando teaches music to all students at Copperfield, as well as French and German.

Fernando oversees our Copperfield Concerts series, where world-class musicians will perform at our school between October 2021 and June 2022. 


Fernando is a virtuoso cellist, specialising in the works of Johann Sebastien Bach, and often performs for our students during lunchtimes. When not playing his cello, you will find him rock climbing at the Centre Sportif de Verbier, reading about philosophy, or cooking with his wife Yoko. He speaks Spanish, German, French, English.

Prior to Copperfield, Fernando studied at the Haute École de Musique de Genève, achieving a BA in Music, followed by an MA in Musical Pedagogy. He then studied at the Dresden College of Music, achieving an MA in Musical Interpretation, and then the Universidad Pontifical Comillas in Madrid. He joined Copperfield in February 2021.
