Fernández began his solfeggio studies with his father, the clarinetist Fermín Fernández. He completed his training at the Superior Conservatory of Music of Madrid.

He practiced all styles from quartet to jazz. He was a concertmaster of several groups and formations, and a member of the Madrid Symphony Orchestra and the National Orchestra. He founded the Chamber Orchestra of Madrid "Ataúlfo Argenta". He received in 1924 the extraordinary prize Sarasate. At the beginning of the 1930s he composed, together with Juan Quintero Muñoz, one of the best known works of the composer from Ceuta, the pasodoble bullfighter En Er Mundo created for a Cuban saxophonist, known worldwide as Aquilino, who triumphed then in Madrid.

After his retirement Fernández continued working with excellent vitality.
