I have extensive experience teaching both children and adults in all different genres, taking pupils through their grades or helping them learning how to play their favourites songs. I also teach music theory, arranging and improvisation.
I encourage and advise my pupils on listening to inspiring music, performing, recording themselves and writing their own music.
I'm a professional pianist and I have been teaching piano and guitar for over 10 years, both in schools as well a privately. I was classically trained in Milan and In 2004 I came to London and completed a BA in jazz at Middlesex University and then a MMUS in jazz performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

I believe in encouraging students to achieve their potential through an enthusiastic, enjoyable and energetic approach.
I feel it is important to be flexible in my teaching methods in order to respond to each individual’s needs and to encourage students to explore multiple styles of music.
Ensemble playing is, in my opinion, an integral part of music learning and should be supported whenever possible.
