Manuel Morales received the higher degree in flute from the Royal Superior Conservatory of Music of Madrid with the highest marks and Honorable Mention.

At the same time he studied in Barcelona with Magdalena Martínez (City of Barcelona Orchestra). Subsequently he moved to Holland where he completed his postgraduate studies in both flute (with Rien de Reede (Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra) and Thies Roorda (Dutch Radio Philarmonic Orchestra) and baroque flute (with Wilbert Hazelzet, one of the worldwide reference baroque flutists) at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
He participated in professional development courses with leading representatives of his instruments such as Peter-Lukas Graf, Peter Lloyd (in the Young National Orchestra of Spain), Aurèle Nicolet, William Bennett, Bart Kuijken and Rachel Brown, amongst others.
In 2001 he was prize-winner in the 2nd Guadamora International Competition of Chamber Music in Pozoblanco (Córdoba) as a member of the Wind Quintet Paul Hindemith, and he was also one of the prize-winners of the prestigious Baroque Flute Artist Competition held in Dallas and promoted by the National Flute Ass.

For four years he was soloist of the Symphonic Orchestra Odón Alonso and has worked with various orchestras and groups playing historical as well as modern instruments. He gave concerts throughout Spain, Italy, Portugal and France. He was invited to be one of the panel members of international flute competitions in Portugal and in the Spanish Flute Association competition.

He has published various articles in the official magazine of the Asociación de Flautistas de España (Spanish Flute Association) focussing on the evolution and performance of flute. Recently has been published his translation of J.G. Tromlitz’s treaty for flute (1791), which is the only one in Spanish and one of the most indispensable sources for the performance of music of that period.

He has given masterclasses in several places in Spain and in Pesaro (Italy).

He obtained a Ph. D. in Performance from the University of Aveiro (Portugal), his thesis being a theoretical-practical work on the performance of flute at the end of the 18th century.
