Composer, conductor, clarinetist and teacher, Javier Pérez Garrido has studied with many renowned musicians in Spain and other countries, earning various High Degrees from the Conservatory and the University of Murcia.

Pérez Garrido has taken part in numerous national and international music contests and has been awarded more than 20 prizes, including the Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals at the famous Global Music Awards in California and the Akademia Music Awards in Los Ángeles.

Likewise, music institutions and musicians around the world, such as the International Trumpet Guild, the European Union Youth Wind Orchestra or the Banda da Armada Portuguesa have commissioned him to write new pieces. His compositions have been premiered and performed in European as well as American and Asian countries, and listened to by outstanding personalities, including the King and Queen of Spain.
