Tribute to Pedro Sarmiento

26 Mar, 22

We dedicate this act to the memory of Pedro Sarmiento who said goodbye to us in March 2021. Pedro was a musician and his tireless work to promote the LÓVA project (The opera, a learning vehicle) in Spain. His educational vocation made him a great teacher whose influence endures over time through this legacy.

Among the traits of Pedro Sarmiento that made him an outstanding person, one of the most enviable was the way he related to children, for whom he undoubtedly had what is usually called magnetism. The secret of that relationship was found, it seems to me, that the children felt respected by him. Which means, to begin with, that the children knew that Pedro expected a lot from them. Isn't that the highest expression of respect for a person, to expect a lot from him - just as there is no greater expression of contempt for someone not to expect anything from him.
