I have studied both at the Conservatory in Italy and Berklee in Boston. After studying music for over 10 years, I know how it is and still smile when something I couldn't do on the guitar comes up all of a sudden out of my mind and my fingers. Musicians are always students somehow. There is no end to what you can and want to learn, and we love that! I have met a lot of great musicians of many ages and experience levels, and they all practice. They weren't always a natural talent; sometimes you have to work hard to achieve something, and if you keep working you'll get there sooner or later. For sure. I know what you need to know if you want to either be a professional musician or if you want to just play for fun, but do it well.

My approach starts from the listening experience. Listening is the most important thing in music whether you are in a band or play alone.

It is important to me to understand what the student likes and what his/her goals are. I ask what style of music they listen to and want to learn and we go from there. I also believe that regardless of the style that you want to play, if you want to be able to play at a certain level you have to work hard on your instrument and there are some things that you have to know about the guitar and the music in general: at least some theory, harmony, reading skills, techniques, and of course, arpeggios, scales, and chords. I teach all these things through songs so that the student can play right away what he/she likes and doesn't just do exercises. This is one of the reasons I specially like to teach improvisation or classical music because they are more challenging and when you learn a standard song, or in some cases, approach the improvisation process, you learn a lot of things even in just one tune. The same for classical guitar; besides, with some basic exercises you learn the technique WHILE working on a piece. Music should never be boring for both the player and the listener.

Guitar

I am a Guitar Player, Composer and Arranger from Naples (Italy), currently living in Brooklyn, NY. I started playing the guitar at the age of twelve and a few years later I decided to dedicate my life to Music and become a professional musician. I was mentored by Maestro Raimondo Di Sandro, in 2007, I earned a Degree in Classical Guitar at the “San Pietro A Majella” Music Conservatory, in Naples.

In Italy, besides studying classical Music, I also played many other styles in several bands and performed in multiple clubs, theaters and festivals. I worked as studio musician for pop artists and performed in live Radio and Television shows. My love for Jazz Music, which I discovered later on, brought me to audition for Berklee College Of Music. In the summer of 2008 after receiving a Scholarship, I decided to move to the US where I earned a Diploma (Summa cum laude) in Performance at Berklee College Of Music.

In this exiting and expiring environment, I had the chance to study with great Musicians and teachers like Hal Crook, Mick Goodrick, Tim Miller, and Jeff Galindo amongst many others.
At Berklee, I met and played with many great young musicians and performed in many concerts with them. I also worked as studio musician in the Film Scoring Department and as guitar player for the Percussion Festival. I am a very versatile musician who loves and plays and teach many styles like jazz, funk, blues, pop or classical Music.
