Paula Shocron

Born in Rosario, Argentina, Paula Shocron initially received a classical education and soon developed an interest in popular music. In 1996, she started exploring jazz and two years later she began to study Composition at the School of Music of the National University of Rosario, with teachers like Diana Rud and Jorge Horst, with whom she took private lessons. She also studied with Carmelo Saitta, Dante Grela, Niels Rosing Schow (Denmark) and Arditti Quartet (England).

In 2000, she took up lessons with Ernesto Jodos and started to focus on jazz, traveling from Rosario to play in Buenos Aires on a regular basis. In late 2001, she was awarded the “Buenos Aires - l World Tour” scholarship of the Berklee College in Boston. The economic crisis that Argentina suffered at the time prevented her from traveling to the US but the award served as an important incentive to continue playing jazz.
