Born in Getxo (Spain), she started her musical studies at a very early age at the “Jacinto Guerrero” Conservatory in Toledo (Spain) with professor Carmen López. She later continued her piano training with María Teresa Gutiérrez. Her career took an important turn when she entered the class of well-known soloist and pedagogue Fernando Puchol at the Royal Conservatory of Madrid. At this school she graduated in piano and theory and pursued additional performance training with Ramón Coll, José Francisco Alonso, Ángel Berrocal and Ricardo Requejo. During the academic year 2007-08 she took advanced piano courses in Leipzig, Germany. Her interest in jazz led her to take courses with American pianist Tony Heimer and Spanish drummer Juanma Barroso. She has also attended master classes with the legendary jazz pianist Larry Willis.
Currently Mrs. Paloma González combines all her performing activities with her post at the “Adolfo Salazar” Conservatory in Madrid.
