Born in 1994 in Barañáin (Navarra, Spain), Iñigo Mikeleiz Berrade began studying accordion in his local music school with Maria Antonia Gonzalez. In 2004 he entered the Conservatory of Music “Pablo Sarasate” with Salvador Parada as his teacher. In 2009 he became a student of Prof. Nekane Iturrioz at the Superior Conservatory of Music of Navarra, and remained her student until in 2015 he graduated Bachelor of Music with honours, and moved to London for postgraduate studies with Prof. Owen Murray at the Royal Academy of Music. He will graduate Master of Arts in Performance in 2017.

He has attended various masterclasses with, among others, Anne Landa, Javier López Jaso, Miguel Ituarte, Alexey Artemyev, Antonio Serrano and Javier Colina.

He has participated in music cycles such as “White Night” in Cádiz and the cultural week of accordion in Zarautz, and in different projects such as “Visible music”, “SIGNUM” and “MARTIROlógika”.
