In 2002 Fabian was selected for the piano chair in the National 2002 Grammy High School Jazz Combo.

In 2003, Fabian moved to New York City to study with Kenny Barron at the Manhattan School of Music. During the completion of his batchelor's degree, Almazan immersed himself in the realm of orchestral composition studying instrumentation and orchestraion with Mr. Giampaolo Bracali.
