His musical work is made up of four hundred arrangements and harmonizations of popular songs with piano accompaniment. He wrote a music theory book for the first and second courses. He published a book with harmonizations for singing and piano in three volumes with the title "Nadales" and he was also the author of several original songs, among them the cycle "Del meu molí".
