The teacher

“My purpose is to make you become indipendent”.

I like to teach and I don’t like to make you waste your time.

 

 

It might seem a trivial or pandering statement, but any of my students could confirm it.
I believe that helping someone who comes to me with questions, dreams and ambitions, become curious, independent and passionate has no price. Just as it is priceless to see the results of someone’s study and dedicated work, whether it’s amateur, professional, or for the preparation of exams at their Conservatory.

 

In more than 20 years of teaching I’ve worked with people of all ages and even with students of many Conservatories that wanted to expand their knowledge.

 

I don’t think that there are barriers in music, if we consider that in Great Music we can find the greatness of human creativity. For this reason, a path could start with Gregorian music, continue with the classical european tradition and then include the enormous richness of what the world has to give thanks to its diversity.
In this infinite scenario there take place my lessons, which normally have piano and harmony as a subject.
I try to broaden my knowledge among different stiles and ways to learn the piano, which is why I’m able to give my students the resources they need to reach pre-determined goals.
The types of courses can range widely:
  • Courses for newbies
  • Courses to perfect technical/stilistic proficiency
  • Preparation for exams at the Conservatory, for both classical and modern musicians.

 

The subjects covered in class, based on the type of course, are:
  • Classical or modern piano
  • Classical and modern harmony
  • Hammond organ
  • Piano accompaniment, also for singers
  • Vocal and instrumental arrangement
  • Ear training
  • Synth programming
  • Use of softwares such as Sibelius or Logic

 

The lessons will be held on a mezza coda Kamai CA-40X, on a Fender Rhodes Mark I and on a Hammond Organ A100 and Leslie 147.
The courses are individual and personalized in order to keep track of the goals, necessities and inclination of the student.
There can also be the possibility to take online Skype lessons (nickname: ilmestri)
