Agenor Garcia started a formal classical training at the age of 17, and, 5 years later, debuted as a music teacher. He moved to Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, where he started composition classes with Professor Bohumil Med (conductor and chairman at the University of Brasilia). Later he was invited to teach lessons at ArtMed, Professor Med’s music school.
Agenor studied with different professors such as Joao Guilherme Ripper (composition - Rio De Janeiro), Cliff Korman (jazz - NYC), experimental music with Group Uakti ( Brasilia) and improvisation at Bill Evans Piano Academy (Paris). After the age of 25, the little formal training he had came to an end, and apart from attending a few master classes, he had no further teachers. Agenor Garcia regards his unconventional musical background as something of an advantage. He considers himself self-taught.
“I learned to distrust anything I hadn't figured out myself.”
His last two albums, Symbiosis and Aviv, were produced by Glen Kolotikin, the Grammy-awarded producer who also has over 20 gold and platinum albums to his credit (recording engineer for Glenn Gould, Miles Davis, Barbra Streisand among others).
Agenor Garcia was invited by the Japanese label Impairment inc, to appear in two compilation albums: Bar Buenos Aires (2015) and Beau Paysage Chardonnay (2016), which feature other renowned artists such as Eddie Gomez (Bill Evans Trio) and Cesarius Alvim.
Agenor has performed around the world at a steady pace since 2005. His performances convey a wide range of expression, which drives the audiences to expect a singular, and intense experience at each performance.
