About Xavier

Hi there! I love teaching, and I've been doing it for more than 20 years now! I was born in Venezuela (South America) from German/Italian parents. I moved to NYC in 09/1999 and I started teaching right away. I started formally studying piano when I was 3 1/2 years old, started playing in live bands since the age of 14 (30 years ago. wow I'm getting old!). I started playing bass and guitar when I was 12-13, then learned a bit of drums from so many years in bands. I have played live, produced/recorded/arranged albums, received several awards for composition/performance, made music for movies, TV series, etc You name it. Again, I really love music and teaching, they're my life!

Back in Venezuela I studied Electronic Engineering. Also I have a masters in Digital Circuits. At the same time I studied Philosophy and Psychology for 3 years, though I didn't graduate, in my country, University degrees take 5 years. So my Spanish is college level, I was always involved in literary clubs, and I wrote a couple of books in Spanish.

I have been involved in music for 40 years already. I have formal training in Piano and Guitar, but I also have an extensive knowledge of bass guitar, which I've been studying and playing for around 30 years. At the moment I teach part time in the Performing Arts Conservatory of NY located in Queens. I have been teaching at this conservatory for 10 years already!

If you're looking to learn your instrument from scratch, you are an experienced player who wants to get to the next level, you want to get better with your music theory knowledge, learn how to compose/arrange, etc etc Don't hesitate to contact me I'll be really glad to help you, even if what you need is an advice! Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!
