SRA. AURORA GARCIA y DUENAS
One of the most outstanding voice and piano graduates of Escuelas de Conferadas de Manila. In her own words, she instils, "without discipline, dedication, determination, and practice - the pursuit of excellence in the arts is a futile exercise."
Sra. Aurora's influence included noteworthy contemporaries in the world of the arts, all of whom played critical roles in teaching methodologies and techniques in developing appropriate skill training that Sra. Aurora developed and employed for intermediate and advance students. With her colleagues, her teaching provided her students worthy mentors towards their career in the musical arts - whether performing, arranging selected musical numbers, and sharing their life experiences.
Several of these colleagues included National Artist Levi Celerio; National Artist Jovita Fuentes; National Artist for Theatre and Music Atang De La Rama; Luz Fernandez; Carmen Paterna and many others.
