As a composer/arranger, Juan has written music for numerous ensembles around the country, whether it be through percussion ensembles or through sound design. Juan is ultimately aspiring a career as a film composer, and has already worked on multiple film scores and other media projects. He actively teaches private lessons and masterclasses at Reagan and its feeder schools, Bush MS and Lopez MS. Juan is an alum of Reagan HS where he was taught under Ray Ulibarri since he was a beginner, and has also studied percussion under Sherry Rubins and Michael Mixtacki at The University of Texas San Antonio.
As a performer, Juan has always had a magnetic pull towards the timpani, having performed it throughout all of high school. He was awarded as an outstanding performer at the UIL Solo & Ensemble contest as a timpani soloist, and was the John Philip Sousa award recipient from his graduating class. Following high school, Juan was the timpanist of the Boston Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps from 2017 to 2019, and the Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps in 2021.
Juan was the gold medalist of the 2021 DCI Performer Showcase timpani category, as well as the Mixed Ensemble category performing with the Bloopit Quartet. Juan was born in Monterrey, Mexico and has resided in San Antonio, TX since 2007. He has been living a musical life for as long as he remembers. From transcribing & writing music since he was 9 years old, his life has always been curiously bombarded by music and analysis. From composing anything between opera to releasing pop music on Spotify, he has always had an eclectic range in his artistic expression. Besides music, Juan has an interest in traveling, reading, and exploring the world internally & externally.
